I was so happy my friend told me to buy tickets to this event last year, I had no idea what it was about but assumed there would be loads of Pinotage .... well on tap of course and anything on tap means you in for a great party. Here is a link to my blog post from last year. http://oliviaskitchen.blogspot.com/2012/10/pinotage-on-tap.html
Get your tickets as soon as they are released to ensure a space at this Wine Showcase event with a difference. The tickets will be on sale from Computicket from the 10th June 2013 and the event takes place on Saturday the 12th October 2013 at the Diemersfontein Wine Estate in Wellington Cape Town. Joburg and Durban wont miss out either, their events take place on the 7th September in Joburg and 21st September in Durban, hopefully they leave some Pinotage for us Capetonians.
Entrance to the venue will be R340pp, this includes wine, food and Live Music, performances by the Gangs of Ballet, Newtons 2nd Law and Natasha Meister. There are also other food stalls, Chenin Blanc and Darling brew for the beer lovers.
Besides all the fun expected, their Pinotage is excellent, also known as "The People's Pinotage" with flavours of coffee, chocolate and smoke, it is well suited to grilled meats, Venison and chocolate desserts, you may want to take a Vat home with you.
There will be accommodation available on request and I suggest you take a picnic blanket and some pillows to relax on until the party starts.
