Wine Pairing with Silkbush Mountain Vineyards

  • Makaranga Garden Lodge 1 Igwababa Road Kloof, KZN, 3640 South Africa (map)

Join us for an exciting evening of gourmet cuisine carefully paired with wines from Silkbush Mountain Vineyards.

Silkbush Mountain Vineyards hails its name from the Sybasberg (Afrikaans for Silkbush Mountain), one of the highest peaks above our vineyards. Sybasberg by its turn gets its name from the Sybasboom (Silkbush) that grows in isolated corners of the mountain. The Silkbush leaves, when torn, produces silky threads of latex – hence its name. Just as special and unique as the Silkbush is, so are their soils, slopes and vineyards. This is manifested in their wines – you can taste the unique mountain terroir. South Africa’s hidden treasure!
