With this in mind the Durbanville Hills Winery has added a new biltong and wine tasting to its offering at the cellar and by doing so, brings two great South African specialties together.  Biltong was most probably the first convenience food developed, originating from the Dutch settlers who sun-dried strips of meat as ready-to-eat sustenance during their treks across the country. And as diverse as South African wines are, so are the various biltong and droëwors varieties. From the
