The New Year is seeing us explore the New World. We swung by Argentina on the 5th February and now we’re dropping in on South Africa on the 26th. For wine, South Africa is….simply WONDERFUL! I was fortunate enough to travel around some key wine regions across South Africa including Stelllenbosch back in 2009 (scroll to the bottom for some ‘youthful’ evidence). South Africa holds a special place in my wine heart and I can’t wait to share some cracking African wine with you all.
#18 Viva South Africa
Date & Time:
Friday 26th March, 8pm (lasting approximately 90 minutes)
Special Guests: We’re delighted to announce a ‘bumper crop’ of special guests for this sensational event.
From Painted Wolf; founder and wine maker Jeremy Borg
It is our privilege to announce that founder and acclaimed wine maker Jeremy Borg will be joining us live from South Africa. Jeremy is very much looking forward to sharing his two passions in life with us; wine (of course) and wild African dogs or…Painted Wolves!
From Laborie, Paarl; winemaker Kobos van der Merwe
Winemaker Kobus will also be beaming in live from SA to talk us through life as a winemaker and why it is, that the Blanc du Blanc we’ll be tasting is indeed his favourite wine! Cheers!
From Pruno Wines; wine merchant and wine columnist Sean Miller
It is with great pleasure we can announce that, returning special guest Sean Miller will be joining us for the tasting. Sean first joined us back in May for our Viva Espana tasting and he didn’t need asking twice to jump onto another. In Sean’s own words, “I’d love to do another virtual wine tasting, the last one was fantastic!” We thought so too Sean and we can’t wait to welcome you back for another glass or two or three!
