Feeling blue?

The warm-blooded blues-riffs from some of South Africa’s foremost blues artists will heat things up at Backsberg Estate in Paarl this winter, with the inaugural series of Brandy and Blues evenings taking place on Friday May 5, at 6.30pm, in their historic vat cellar. Piet Botha, pictured above, and Jake Gunn kick off the series. The evening includes glühwein on arrival, a two-course dinner of slow-roasted lamb shank and brandy pudding, and wine will be for sale. Tickets are R300 each. Book at 021 875 5952 or email restaurant@backsberg.co.za
