Never be fooled and think you know all that Paarl has to offer. This region is fresh and innovative and changes with the seasons.
Our media day, organised by Peridot Communications, let us play tourist in our own "backyard" and experience what Paarl Tourism has to offer. Kicking off an icy day at Perdeberg Winery, we were quickly warmed by their new Barrel & Hops Soup Pairing. The newly released Hops & Co craft beers will no doubt also be a winner in summer.
Mellasat Vineyards, pioneers of the White Pinotage, once again showed their creativity with their first natural wine being produced. Their Tempranillo, part of the Cellarmaster's Reserve Tasting, was a highlight.
Spice Route never disappoints. Feasting away on lunch at Bertus Basson at Spice Route, we thought that nothing could be better. The Spice Route Tasting Passport was able to grab our attention - the passport, which includes 5 standard tastings at Spice Route, is a great gift idea that will make you a favourite among your friends and family.
The KWV Wine Emporium took our breaths away, literally, with their Gin Tasting. This well-thought-out pairing adds to the already amazing pairings available at the Emporium which ranges from brandy tastings to sweet wine and cake tastings.
