Wine and shortbread pairing in McGregor


Off the beaten track is synonymous with McGregor, and so is the newly developed wine tasting experience offered by McGregor Winery.

McGregor and the vineyards surrounding it are at the foothills of the Riviersonderend Mountains. The village itself is an image of where time has stood still over the years; it is where the people are not bothered by the concept of time and one suddenly forgets the daily apprehensions when entering the wide gravel streets.

The rural area surrounding the village is characterised by a rugged landscape and a variety of fauna and striking flora just waiting to be discovered. Between the inspiring landscape lie the most prized vineyards exposed to the unique climate of the Mcgregor area.

Wines made here have an unforgettable charm, and it is with this in mind that the McGregor range of lifestyle wines was inspired, each crafted to reflect McGregor’s wild nature in its flavours.

Each of these has been paired with a uniquely flavoured shortbread: Delicious Monster White blend with passionfruit and mint; Golden Shower Chardonnay with macadamia nut and sage; Blushing Bride Rosé with lavender and Turkish delight; Falling Star Red blend with sundried tomato and thyme; and Morning Glory Shiraz with dark chocolate and black pepper.

For R85 per person, visit the winery to experience this pairing on the beautiful green lawn, against the backdrop of the inspiring landscape. Bookings are essential. Call 023 625 1741 or email [email protected]
