It’s the first-ever Pick ‘n Pay Wine and Food Festival and I’m super keen to go! Will you join me?
Set against the superb backdrop of Table Mountain, festivalgoers will be able to taste wines from across the Cape Winelands. Wine estates will have their top wines on offer for your tasting pleasure, and when you find your perfect match – be it a glorious grenache or perfect pinot noir – you’ll be able to buy it right there at cellar door prices. Wine farm representatives will be only too happy to chat with you and answer any questions you may have about their wines.
Where there’s wine, there’s food, and a bounteous feast to sample and purchase awaits at the Pick n Pay Fresh Food Market – freshly baked bread, delicious cheeses and a selection of fruit and veg. Items such as steak boards, cheese platters, burgers, sandwiches, coffee and tea, a full range of snacks for the little ones and lots more, will also be available to purchase.
Another highlight of the event is the hugely popular Pick n Pay Tasting Room, a much sought-after experience since appearing at our various wine festivals around the country. Expert winemakers and a professional chef will indulge your senses with award-winning wines, exquisitely paired with melt-in-your-mouth canapés. Not only a gastronomic experience of note, but visitors will also learn how to impress their friends with their new pairing prowess! Seats for the 30-minute sessions are limited and sell out fast –book early at http://bit.ly/PnPWFF to avoid disappointment.
Live music will complete this amazing setting and set the mood for a fun day – with family or friends –celebrating some of the country’s best wine.
Pick n Pay has fast established itself as the ‘home of South African wines’, with our stores stocking over 100 estates and 1000 varietals. “We’ve always brought the Winelands to our customers through our stores, and now we want to create a truly interactive wine and food experience for our customers that appeal to connoisseurs and novices alike – as well as families looking for a fun day out,” said Gavin Ievers, Pick n Pay’s Head of Liquor.
“As not everyone can visit the estates in the Cape Winelands, The Pick n Pay Wine & Food Festival will be held in Johannesburg later in the year, bringing this experience to wine lovers in that region. Pick n pay, along with its partners, plans to host more intimate wine experiences during the year.
