The Pick n Pay Wine & Food Festival returns, raising a glass to the country’s incredible wine makers after a tough two years of lockdown. The event takes place on Saturday 30 April and Sunday 1 May, 2022 at the Kenilworth Racecourse in Cape Town.
Over 40 estates from wine-producing regions across South Africa will be represented, and as always, festivalgoers can expect an abundance of choices, all of which will be available for purchase right there, at the same price you’d pay at the cellar door.
Exclusive wines on offer include: The Masterpiece from Bellingham, Pick n Pay’s most recent collaboration, comprising Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and a red blend; Jacques Steytler, boasting six varietals, Jacques Mouton, with a range of four wines, L’Avenir (six wines), Le Bonheur (five wines) and Great Heart (two wines). Other estates to look forward are Boekenhoutskloof, Simonsig, Pongracz and Kaapzicht.
Gourmet Food Lane
If you’re a bubbly lover, you’ll be dazzled by a brand-new dedicated sparkling wine experience, where Cap Classique, Champagne and sparkling wine abound for your tasting pleasure.
Where there’s wine, there’s food, and a bounteous feast to purchase awaits at the all-new Pick n Pay Gourmet Food Lane, where you’ll find the best Pick n Pay has to offer, prepared by professional chefs. And don’t forget the ever-popular burger truck and coffee trailer.
After brushing up on wine knowledge with the experts at the tasting stalls, festivalgoers can buy their favourite wine and food choices and relax under the trees while soaking up the live entertainment.
Always a firm favourite is the Pick n Pay Tasting Room, where expert wine makers and professional chefs will present a culinary journey featuring exquisite wines superbly paired with melt-in-your-mouth canapes. The 30-minute sessions are hugely popular and sell out fast, so make sure you book early to secure your spot.
