Event Description

California is the viticultural engine room of the USA and dominates with approximately 90% of the production. Zinfandel is perhaps California's signature grape but some of the world’s finest Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and especially Cabernet Sauvignon is found here. Indeed, Cabernet Sauvignon, mainly from Napa for the past three decades has battled against Bordeaux in the Paris Tastings (Judgement of Paris) and won! 

In the last few years, with an explosion of new winemakers, wineries, and range of wine styles, the higher quality wines coming from regions like Stellenbosch, Elgin, Constantia and Walker Bay to name just a few, are enriching our fine wine collections. The grape varieties that South Africa has made her own - the delicious Pinotage and Chenin Blanc, make terrific wines!

We will be tasting at least 6 different wonderful wines

This is event can also be booked as part one one of our amazing wine tours - Four Week Wine Tour
