Backsberg Season of Jazz Grand Finale


The past six months has seen a host of talented jazz artists congregating on the Backsberg Estate to supply a soundtrack to many a fine wining and dining experience as part of the Backsberg Season of Jazz.

This weekend will see the Season's Grand Finale with the experimental jazz maestros, Van Hunks Experience featuring the undefinable nightingale queen of the airwaves, Inge Beckmann. With unique innovations by composer and trumpeter Adriaan Brand (of Springbok Nude Girls fame), they have an original and surprising sound with operatic vocals or remixed choral and Mozart elements.

As the evenings grow colder, join us inside the cozy Backsberg restaurant, with its roaring log fire - the perfect intimate setting. Relax and enjoy the delicious Mediterranean platters and Backsberg wines against the backdrop of fine Jazz music.

The Mediterranean Platters consist of:

Freshly baked Ciabata Bread filled with slices of Spit Roasted Lamb; Italian-style cured meats and delicious cheeses matched with preserves; Sun-dried tomatoes, olives, feta, and a trio of home-made dips served with savoury biscuits and farm-style bread; as well as seasonal fruit skewers.

Backsberg wines will be available for purchase as well.
