Pinotage & Biltong Festival Celebrates Two South African Favourites

Get your purple and white outfits ready, round up some friends and don’t miss out on this year’s Pinotage and Biltong Festival at Allee Bleue Wines between the N1 and Franschhoek in July.

Dates and Times: Saturday 29 July and Sunday 30 July from 11h00-16h00.

18 Wineries will offer around 30 Pinotages for tasting and for sale ranging from the traditional red variant to Rosé’s, bubbly, dessert wines and even white Pinotage. Each winery will have one wine paired with a Biltong flavour courtesy of Namaqualand Biltong.

You will have the unique opportunity to taste Pinotage from Stellenbosch, Swartland, Breedekloof, Paarl, Worcester and Wellington all in one space!

Food will be available for sale at the restaurant at Allee Bleue offering all kinds of fast foods and the restaurant’s a la carte menu, as well as a few food vendors.

The Festival will take place in the Le Grand Hall, as the weather in July might be rearing its ugly head but ticket holders will be able to sample these two great South African products under a solid roof!

Live music by Guy Feldman and his band – aptly named Mista Guy and his Biltong Band – makes it a day to remember out in the Winelands. Dress in your funkiest purple and white outfits and stand a chance to win some prizes too.
