Who claims popcorn does not fit with wine?

Experience the contrary at Stellenbosch Hills estate. Polkadraai & Popcorn is a wine and popcorn pairing, designed to bring out the best flavours in each other. For R55 per person, you can taste four wines from the estate’s Polkadraai wine range, paired perfectly with flavoured gourmet popcorn.


Which do you think would pop for you? The Sauvignon blanc brut, which has notable fruit flavours, with coconut and chia seed popcorn, or the Chenin blanc with salted caramel popcorn? Maybe you’re more of a red wine person, in which case you’ll love the berry-inspired rose complemented by cinnamon and pretzel popcorn, or the pinotage and dark chocolate popcorn combination.

Tastings occur at the Stellenbosch Hills winery, which is open Monday to Friday from 9am to 5pm, and Saturdays from 10am to 3pm. Bookings are highly recommended as sessions fill up quickly.
