Stellenbosch Hills is searching for South Africa’s Best Biltongmaker!

Stellenbosch Hills is the first cellar in the world to combine two proudly South African delights with their Biltong & Droëwors Adventure to be enjoyed at the cellar door. They recognise that the art of drying meat nowadays is as specialised as the art of winemaking and the aim was to create a competition where two of South Africa’s most popular products – wine and biltong– could be combined.

The Biltongmaker of the year competition has proven to be a huge success since its inception four years ago, and each year a different Stellenbosch Hills wine is chosen to be the inspiration for entrants

The winner’s biltong must complement this chosen wine to the best. This year the choice of wine is the Stellenbosch Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2011. Entrants can use any meat for their entries and a grand prize of R15 000 is up for grabs.

Judging will take place during September and the winner will be announced on 13 October 2014.

Prospective biltongmakers can order entry packets at a cost of R200. This includes a bottle of Stellenbosch Hills Cabernet Sauvignon 2011 as inspiration, as well as delivery. Participants must register before or on 1 September 2014. The closing date for entries is 30 September 2014 when 500g of biltong from all participants must be delivered at Stellenbosch Hills for judging.
