Pinotage On Tap, or “POT” as it’s fondly become known, started off (15 years ago) as a simple little party on the farm in honour of our fabulous (and famous) Coffee Chocolate Pinotage, (the Original one) produced by the award-winning wine estate, Diemersfontein Wines in Wellington, Western Cape, South Africa. The idea was to celebrate the new vintage and involve and spoil the people who enjoyed it. Well... never did we imagine what would transpire from that in years to come! POT grew like Jack’s beanstalk - and so did the fans! Today we can proudly say that not only has this event established a reputation and following (second to none) but in 2014, Pinotage On Tap also received the coveted award for the “Best Wine Event in the World” by Drinks International.
From then on it’s only been upward and forward! Every year the festival is held in 4 key locations, namely Durban, Joburg, Cape Town and Clarens. Not that we’re not open to more ideas, but these 4 sites have become the 4 pillars in the roadshow of annual events.
The nature of the event involves the following criteria - and possibly in this order too: Phenomenal wine, (Pinotage of course) pouring abundantly from the barrel taps (hence the name), mouth-watering food, top-class live music entertainment, fantastic company and the best wine fest experience you can possibly have!
Please note, this is a wine party, so no under 18s are allowed.
