The festival concept offers visitors a Pinotage & Biltong Pairing Card & Tasting Map which takes participants on a fun “festival route” to discover new Pinotage styles paired with curated biltong and droë wors flavours.

The lawns and shady trees on the banks of the Hennops River at the Leriba Hotel and Spa in Centurion near Pretoria, will be a sea of white and purple as wine lovers spend the day tasting and buying some of the best Pinotage’s in South Africa, paired with quality biltong flavours by locally based Billa B & Co Biltong Deli.
