2015 Pinotage-On-Tap festival: Tickets now on sale

The first POT Festival of 2015 kicks off in Johannesburg at Val Bonne Country Estate in Modderfontein on August 29th, to be followed by the Durban festival at The Litchi Orchard in Salt Rock on September 19th. The grand finale, as always, will be held at Diemersfontein Estate in Wellington, just 70km from Cape Town. This year’s Cape Town event will take place on October 10th, which is also fittingly known as International Pinotage Day.

International band, CrashCarBurn, will be the headlining act at all three events, and fest goers will also get to experience top live performances from local artists including Howie Combrink (Joburg), Majozi (Durban) and Grassy Spark (Cape Town).

Since Diemersfontein’s initial modest celebration held 11 years ago in honour of their first vintage of this delectably tipple at the estate outside Wellington, the proudly South African cultivar, with unique, tantalising flavours of ‘The Original Coffee-Chocolate Pinotage’, has taken the world by storm. Dedicated to the consumption of a single (and singular) wine, the legendary Pinotage-On-Tap celebrations have since evolved into full-blown festivals, hosted annually in Johannesburg, Durban, and the lovely Boland town that lies in the heart of the Cape Winelands.

Attendees will be treated to a generous goodie-bag on arrival, followed by a sumptuous lunch, featuring a lavish array of palate-pleasing, Pinotage-paired bowl foods (including dessert), complemented by great live music from a line-up of top local acts throughout the day. Not to be forgotten is the ‘bottomless’ abundance of the multi-award-winning, ORIGINAL Coffee-Chocolate Pinotage tapped straight from the barrels. It’s an unrivalled, unforgettable, unmissable experience that’s all included in the ticket price.

Keep a lookout for regular POT Festival updates over the next few months as we build the anticipation of this year’s events via the Diemersfontein website and Twitter page, as well as the Pinotage On Tap Facebook page.
