Museum Saturday Biltong & Droëwors Adventure with Stellenbosch Hills

29 May 11:00AM to 4:00PM

"Winemaking in South Africa dates back to 1659, and the making of dried meat products just as far back,” explains cellar master, P.G. Slabbert. It seemed a logical ‘local is lekker’ match to bring these two products together for a unique tasting experience that celebrates our Cape heritage.”  This unique pairing of six Stellenbosch Hills premium wines with specially selected cured and dried meats is a must!
