  Five double tickets to Koos Kombuis concert up for grabs!

04 Feb 2014

Topics: Backsberg Estate Cellars, Koos Kombuis, South Africa, South African wine, wine

Backsberg Estate Cellars' ever-popular Picnic Concert series kicks off in Paarl on Sunday 16 February with a live performance by legendary musician, singer, songwriter and author Koos Kombuis, and you could be there, sharing this unique experience compliments of Backsberg and Platter's Guide.

The Sunday Picnic Concerts, staged among Backsberg Estate's vineyards and gardens, let you, family and friends enjoy a glass of wine, feast on lamb wraps or beef burgers, and unwind to the sounds of some of South Africa's top performers.

Koos Kombuis is considered one of the best lyricists in South African music. Famed for being part of a group of anti-establishment maverick Afrikaans musicians in the eighties, his musical style is folky and raw, and he’s often only accompanied by his acoustic guitar.

To WIN one of five sets of double tickets to the Koos Kombuis performance, either leave a comment below, write on our Facebook wall or send us a tweet, and tell us:


The name of the winners will be announced on Tuesday 11 February 2014. Good luck!

    The Family Reserve Red Blend best suits Koos Kombuis' music, because only the best will do.

    Oops, forgot to mention..... The Dry Red........ little bit raw and goes well with a acoustic guitar.

    The question should be 'which was does not suit Koos Kombuis' music - but if I have to choose, it would be the John Martin Reserve Sauvignon Blanc from the Black Label Range.

    It would be so 'lekker' to see Koos Kombuis at the Bacskberg Estate. Dankie !!
