|After chatting to winemaker Jan van Rooyen, it was decided to offer wines best suited to the cold winter weather expected on the night and therefore the 10 year old Brandy will be for tasting in little dark chocolate cups at a small fee – combined with a selection of other wines obviously.
The restaurant is preparing portions of their popular salmon roses with wasabi mayo and caviar sprinkles which will be for sale at their stand next to the winery’s and Zunia and Melanie, our well-known foodie team, will be on hand to make sure the tummies are full!
Tickets cost a mere R50 for which festival goers receive an elegant wine glass branded with the Helderberg Wine Route logo, and have the opportunity to taste the wines on show. Chefs will prepare small portions of their signature dishes to sell to patrons during the show.
