Event Description

Thorne & Daughters

Thorne and Daughters Wines was started in 2012 by John and Tasha Seccombe to produce authentic wines in the beautiful Western Cape where they have made their home. To produce their wines they’ve drawn on the great history of wine growing in South Africa, putting together old vineyard parcels with new grape varieties, and making wines with old school simplicity and a modern ‘edge’. Their approach to wine making is simple, honest and gentle, and they look to make wines that tell a story of the Cape of Good Hope.

Tasting Date: Thursday 21st January 2021 at 6:30pm (the tasting will last approximately 2 hours).


For this special two-hour tasting, an exclusive tasting kit is included in the listed price which includes a 75ml tasting sample of each wine, as well as tasting mat, tasting note paper and pen. Note: Tasting kits will be despatched to attendees within the week leading up to the tasting. Two weeks prior to the event, we will confirm postal addresses for all kit deliveries.

That is absolutely fine! The fee to just register for this evening without receiving a tasting kit is £10. Just enter the promotional code: 65REGONLY when checking out to ensure you just pay the registration cost.
