■ Visitors at Idiom can explore a number of wines through the prism of macarons, the confection that shares an Italian heritage with the Bottega family that owns this Helderberg winery. The macarons are made by the pastry team at Idiom, with ingredients that showcase the character of the wines being paired. The pairing goes from light and airy to dark and intense. The Idiom wine and macaron pairing experience is on offer from Friday to Sunday until the end of February for R150. Pre-bookings are essential and tour group bookings are available on request.
