STELLENBOSCH HILLS is about to move your lockdown me-time to a whole new level. The winery that made wine pairing fun by thinking “out of the box” has now re-invented the concept, putting pizzazz all back inside – for your enjoyment at home.
No need to wait for Stellenbosch Hills’ celebrated Biltong & Wine and Popcorn & Polkadraai to start up again. Simply email-and-collect to get these innovative wine and snack pairings for savouring at your own pad. Even better: why not buy one for a friend? The boxes are great for nibble-and-sip on chilly winter days or Skype and Zoom gatherings with mates.
The Biltong & Wine box includes all the favourites. There’s a mixed case of wine containing Polkadraai Pinotage/Merlot; 1707 Reserve White; 1707 Reserve Red; Stellenbosch Hills Shiraz; Stellenbosch Hills Cabernet Sauvignon; and, Stellenbosch Hills Merlot. Packed for two, each box also has six variations in separately bagged pairs of biltong and droëwors. There’s springbok, kudu, moist beef and smoked biltong as well as beef and ostrich droëwors. Should you want to add biltong and droëwors for friends in your tasting party, an additional six portions are available at only R50/person extra. The box also contains tasting notes. The total cost is just R600.
The Popcorn & Polkadraai box contains four wines from the easy-drinking Polkadraai range: the Sauvignon Blanc Brut; Chenin Blanc/ Sauvignon Blanc; Rosé; and, Pinotage/ Merlot. The popcorn comes in four flavours that were composed by the awesome Guzzle & Wolf Gourmet Popcorn Company and each is packed for a duo of munch-lovers. There’s coconut and chia seeds; salted caramel; cinnamon and pretzel; and, dark chocolate. Here too, tasting notes are provided. At R300 for all this, it’s another great bargain. Get extra popcorn for just R40/person.
