These are the fun meetings that are coming up over the next few months. We meet monthly on Thursday evenings in Wynberg at 7.00 for 7.30pm. Eight wines are showcased at each meeting. You will receive an information folder and there is a cheeseboard after. The R300 per person fee covers costs. You also have the opportunity to order any of the wines tasted. Full details will be sent out before each meeting.
20 July How Adventurous are You? Explore some Rare White and Red Wines
We all have our preferred white and red wines (or even white or red wines) that we buy over and over again. There’s much more than our staple choices. We shall explore some of the less known South African white and red grape varieties. I guarantee there will be some you have rarely if ever tasted. I am sure too that you will discover some gems that you will enjoy and wish to get to know better.
17 August Italian Wines – SA Style
Italy is the new France! South African wine styles are changing. There’s a move from away from some classic Bordeaux to Rhone varietals/blends to wines using the excellent Italian cultivars. We don’t have to import from Italy when our own winemakers are using grapes such as Pinot Grigio, Nebbiolo, Sangiovese and Barbera. I shall be picking out an exciting and enticing mix of white, rosé and red wines for us to explore and enjoy.
