New: Wine & POPcorn pairing


For Valentine’s month only Stellenbosch Hills has put together a special pairing of its Polkadraai range of wines with gourmet-flavoured popcorn.

It’s great value too! Get four pairings for only R50. 

  1. Polkadraai Sauvignon Blanc Brut 2017 paired with banana-coated popcorn. This drier style, crisp wine has lively fruit flavours that are an absolute smash with Guzzle & Wolf’s razzle-dazzle banana-coated popcorn.
  2. Polkadraai Chenin Blanc/Sauvignon Blanc 2017 paired with salted caramel popcorn.  Expect more tropical flavours, but this time with a grassy note in the wine. Try the popcorn with a sip of wine and magic happens. The popcorn’s salty kiss awakens a sweeter note in the wine and blooms with fruity aroma.
  3.  Polkadraai Pinotage/Merlot 2016 paired with dark chocolate popcorn. The ripe, black and red berry flavours of the wine come together with the dark chocolate taste and unleash a total melt-in-the-mouth explosion.
  4. Polkadraai Pinot Noir Sparkling Rosé 2017 paired with strawberry popcorn. A seductive salmon coloured sparkling wine, the rosé is a sweet and medium-bodied bubbly that brims with red berry and strawberry flavours, and a hint of candyfloss. Nibble on those fluffy strawberry popcorn kisses and it’s a Cupid carnival in your mouth.


The Polkadraai & Popcorn Tasting costs R50 per person. Each session runs for about 30 minutes, although there’s plenty more time to explore Stellenbosch Hills’ full range of quality wines too.
