Shiraz & Charcuterie feast promises fantastic food-and-wine pairings

THEY SAY the reason for changing venue was a lack of space. In just a couple of years, the Feast of Shiraz & Charcuterie grew in popularity to the point that host Hartenberg was bursting at the seams and hence the switch to Joostenberg Deli & Bistro for the 2015 event on Saturday 30 May, 12:00 to 17:00 – not  quite as charming outdoors, what with those powerlines, pylons n all, but plenty of parking and easy access just off the N1 freeway.

From various parts of the SA winelands, there will be 19 Shiraz exhibitors at the Stellenbosch venue. Odd that they didn’t round-up to 20:
