Pinotage Day at Backsberg

Celebrate Pinotage Day with Backsberg Estate Cellars this October 

On Saturday, 14 October 2017, the World of Wine will pay tribute to South Africa’s most iconic indigenous grape variety. A local at heart, the Pinotage grape was created in 1925 when Professor Abraham Izak Perold crossed the well-known varieties of Pinot Noir and Cinsaut. The iconic Pinotage was born. 

Waterblommetjie Fees

Loer vroeg by Windmeul Kelder in vir `n heerlike plaasontbyt en snuffel by die plaasmark rond vir smullekker tuisgemaakte produkte. Daar is `n spesiale Run the Vines wedloop oor 5km en 10km roetes met `n springkasteel vir die kleingoed.

Die wynmaakspan bied tussen 10h00 en 12h00 spesiale Waterblommetjie & Wynpasmaats aan (solank voorraad hou) en wynliefhebbers kan onoortrekflike wynwinskopies kry. Sien hoe die kenners met waterblommetjies te werk gaan tydens die potjiekoskompetisie.

The vineyards are nestled between the Klein Drakenstein mountains and receive good doses of African sunshine. Excellent winemaking occurs on a historical piece of land in this region, as the land was once home to hundreds of Italian POW's in 1945 who were instrumental in the construction of the Du Toitskloof pass. The Italians erected a wooden cross to commemorate their time in the Klein Drakenstein area, wich was later replaced by a stainless steel one, to honor the POWs. This landmark can be seen from our property.
