The entries have been received, reviewed (and sampled) and the best of the best have been selected for this year’s Alchemy Best Home Cooked Burger Competition. And you’re invited to sample what the finalists have come up with! Join the judges on Heritage Day, Thursday, 24 September as you get the chance to sample some of SA’s lip smacking home cooked burgers.
The six finalists in the Alchemy Wines #Hartenburger competition will battle it out on the day to impress you with their best burgers. The winning burger will be featured on Hartenberg’s Taste at Hartenberg menu for the year.
Hartenberg’s very own mouth-watering, signature grass-fed Waygu beef burger will also be available, perfectly paired with the Alchemy SMG.
And what would a cook off be without the judges. This year’s judging panel includes well-known foodie and blogger, Dax Villanuevea (Relax With Dax); foodie, blogger and food stylist, Sam Linsell (Drizzle & Dip) and internationally acclaimed Mount Nelson Executive Chef, Rudi Liebenberg. Keeping it real and true to Hartenberg the panel is completed by two of the kitchen’s cooks, Marilize Geduldt and Fumbatha Mehlo, who are responsible for adding that extra dash of passion Hartenberg’s food has become popular for.
Tickets cost R150 per person and include entry, two burgers as well as two glasses of Alchemy wines of your choice. The fun starts at 11am and visitors can look forward to the cook off, live music as well as a wine tasting. Tickets are limited and can be purchased by contacting Hartenberg on firstname.lastname@example.org or 021 865 2541.
Designed for everyday enjoyment the Alchemy range is vibrant and youthful – ideal for any occasion. The range consists of the Alchemy Chenin Blanc Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Alchemy Syrah Mourvedre Grenache (SMG), Alchemy Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc and the Alchemy Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon. The versatility of this range allows the winemaking team to experiment with blends as they select only the best and rarest pockets of vineyards with which to work their magic.
Although a value-for-money range these wines have proven their worth in recent industry competitions. The SMG 2013 was awarded Gold at the inuagural Sommeliers Selection competition, which is unique to the industry in that the wines are tasted and judged only by members of the Sommeliers Association of South Africa. Adding to the growing list of medals, the Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 and Merlot Malbec Cabernet Franc 2013 each received Gold at this year’s Gold Wine Awards. One of the stipulations for this competition is that the wines have to be R80.00 including VAT or less, and easily accessible to the South African consumer at that price.
The Alchemy range is available from most Tops! @ Spar, Makro and Ultra Liquor outlets nationwide.
