The !NABA Food and Wine Festival celebrates its fifth year showcasing local, quality products from the region as well as all over South Africa. As the first – and only – food and wine show in the Northern Cape, the !NABA seeks to represent the epitome of quality and refinement.
DID YOU KNOW? A ‘!Naba’, or Kalahari truffle, is a potato-like fungus delicacy with intricate flavouring and the name suits the festival’s overall quintessence: local talent at its highest quality!
Found only in the Kalahari, North Africa, the Mediterranean and the Middle East where, for centuries, people have sought out this elusive fungus in shallow, sandy soil where it maintains a symbiotic relationship with the roots of a savoury, edible fruit, the desert melon or Tsamma melon.
The truffle is also known as desert gold!
!NABA Food and Wine Festival – the finest gourmet event in the Kalahari!
Visitors can expect to be treated to multi-layered culinary delights, local and national wines, craft beers, liqueurs, a feast of food, food-related products, demonstrations and live entertainment to showcase the Green Kalahari as one of the world’s premier food and wine destinations.
Amongst the favourites participating at the !NABA Food and Wine Festival 2018 will be Alpha Wood Concepts, Bezalel Wine Estate, Kalahari Craft Beer, Orangeriver Cellars, Die Mas van Kakamas Wines, Vrouenspan Cheeses, Zandvliet Wine Estate, Stellenbosch Vineyards, Cederberg Wines & Craft Beers, Bloemfontein Coffee Roasting Co, Miss J.L.
