Biltong and Pinotage Festival – 16, 17 April 2016
Join us on 16th and 17th April for the Biltong and Pinotage Festival, at L'Avenir Wine estate on the R44, Stellenbosch from 11:00 – 18:00. This is the second year that the festival takes place and it promises to be another fun filled weekend.
Pinotage wines will be paired with a range of spiced biltong – our White Pinotage was paired with lemon and herb spicing last year, and it was a hit! This year it will be paired with a pepperoni salami - spice and nice!
Mellasat’s White Pinotage, together with other producer’s red Pinotage, rosé, bubblies and blends, will be available for tasting and can also be purchased at the event.
Come join us for what will prove to be a great day of tasting Pinotage and Biltong!

Our 2015 White Pinotage is now available!
We have just released our 2015 White Pinotage and it's even better than the previous vintages! Visitors to the Ommiberg festival were fortunate to be among the first to taste this wine.
This wine jumps out of the glass with lots of pineapple, kiwi and yellow fruit on the nose. These flavours follow through on the palate and ends with a lingering creamy, mineral aftertaste. Even though we increased the new wood component to 13% the wine is very delicate. The creaminess comes from our winemaking team rolling the barrels every week for 6 months!
We are open seven days a week, so visit us to tempt your taste buds!
