Brandy & Blues

Warm up this winter with Backsberg’s inaugural series of Brandy and Blues Evenings. Adding to the atmosphere of authentic blues music is the fact that the events will take place in Backsberg’s Historic Vat Cellar, a piece of South African wine history in its own right. The atmosphere will be intimate, the sounds electric. 

Tickets are R300.00 per person inclusive of a glass of Sydney Back Brandy or glühwein on arrival, a two-course dinner of slow-roasted lamb shank and Sydney Back Brandy pudding, a glass of wine to enjoy over dinner and entertainment.
