The Best of the Braai

There’s never been a more perfect time to explore South African flavour.

This special taste-and-buy event celebrates South Africa’s pride with 33 of its premium wineries including De Toren, Graham Beck, Ken Forrester, La Motte, Meerlust, Porcupine Ridge, Tokara and Spice Route.

Taste over 80 wines paired with authentic barbeque fare – the best of the braai (grill).

“Rapidly improving quality. A large number of value-priced offerings. Diversity from a range of varieties planted in both warm and cool growing areas. It all combines to make South Africa one of the most attractive emerging wine regions in the world today … The best are fresh, juicy wines that combine vivid, New World-style fruit with racy, Old World-style structure and minerality.” (James Molesworth, Wine Spectator, April, 30 2009)
