We all know the classic pairings: wine and cheese, wine and chocolate, wine and olives. And as further scientific proof that wine, in fact, goes with everything, the Pinotage and Biltong Festival will be held at L'Avenir Wine Estate on Saturday, 22 April. A brave new era of biltong flavours is upon us with rooibos and honey, lemon pepper, chilli chicken and chutney bacon glamourising our traditional beef jerky. Now, blend these with mouthfuls of our country's proudest pinotages — even including a white one — and you have yourself a picnic. If only everything went together so perfectly.
