Think you have it all figured out when it comes to wine tasting? Nederburg’s The Manor restaurant and wine tasting hub in Paarl has teamed up with Freedom Coffee to offer wine and coffee lovers a slightly unusual tasting experience.

The Brew Tasting comprises a selection of Nederburg’s delicious white and red wines, as well as some top-notch single origin and blended coffees by Freedom Coffee, and edibles like dried mango, prunes, grapes, white chocolate with nuts and raspberries, dark chocolate and fatty biltong.

Is there anything more quintessentially South African than a braai? Those in the know will tell you that it’s a way of life here in SA. It’s certainly not just about throwing some meat on the fire and hoping for the best, but rather a special ritual that centres around the joyful preparation and sharing of a tasty meal (usually involving some form of grilled meat) while spending time with family and friends, telling stories, discussing all and sundry, as well as remembering and knowing who we are and what we’re made of as South Africans.
