Paardeberg Country Pinotage Festival Celebrates International Pinotage Day with Wine, Food and Live Music INTERNATIONAL Pinotage Day is the perfect reason to pile family and friends into the car and explore the off-the-beaten-track Paardeberg countryside to join the area’s wineries at Vondeling Wines for the #PaardebergCountry Pinotage Festival on Saturday 12 October.

The Cape is firmly established as “one of the most exciting wine-producing countries on the planet”, thanks to a combination of old vines, young wine-making talent, established names, varied terroirs and a can-do spirit, according to award-winning British journalist and Master of Wine Tim Atkin, who has just released his seventh annual guide to South Africa.

Distell, in partnership with waste beneficiation and implementation partner, Separation at Source (S@S), is launching GreenUp, a progressive community change initiative focused on a cleaner environment, as well as on establishing and formalising effective value chains of operation in the collection, separation and processing of recyclable post-consumer waste within the Western Cape’s Khayelitsha informal settlement.     This green economy action initiative is being introduced this week, during South Africa’s ninth annual Sustainability Week. 

With so many award-winning wines being made in South Africa each year, it has become impossible to choose the best. You want to spend your well-earned money on a wine that truly transcends quality as we know it.

Like a nova that only happens once in a star’s lifetime, you will remember those singular bottles of wine that blew your mind. - Dr Leanie Louw.
