Event Description

World of Wine: South Africa and USA

Join us for an evening of spectacular New World showstoppers!

Part 1: South Africa
With a long and distinguished history of wine production going back over 350 years, it is potentially the oldest 'New World' wine producing country! Famous as a holiday destination for its beautiful wine regions, we will discover the wines that make this region famous and consistenly entice people back. Chunky, chocolatey reds, both made as Bordeaux-style blends and using their very own grape, Pinotage, and elegant European-style whites from Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc are now catching the world’s attention.

Part 2: USA
This is a country which is now demanding we take another look. From its viticultural engine room, California, two seemingly contradictory wine images emerge. Firstly there’s the cheap, sweet, soft, pink wines, served by the container-load in the supermarket. Then there’s the super-premium, super-expensive world of boutique Napa Valley wineries, as shown on the film Sideways. So what is the 'real' Californian wine? Tonight we will dodge the stereotypes and discover rich, strawberry-scented Zinfandel (the red wine, not the pink stuff!), earthy Pinot Noir and creamy soft Chardonnay. Californian wines are elusive and often expensive, but they are able to compete with some of the best in the world - come along and taste for yourself.

All tastings include; minimum of 6 wines sourced locally so you can find them easily if you like them, full tasting notes,use of professional tastings glasses, and nibbles.
