World of Wine: USA & South Africa

World of Wine: USA & South Africa

 Join us for a World of Wine tasting on the great North America & the diversifying South Africa.

Part One – North America

California dominates the U.S with approximately 90% of the production, which is turn is dominated by the large multinationals such as Ernest & Julio Gallo. However, at the other end of the spectrum some of the world’s finest Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, excellent Zinfandel 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! Arguably the finest in world then…

Part Two – South Africa

For almost a century South Africa was dominated by one cooperative, KWV, producing large volumes of very average wine. With the end of Apartheid in 1990 came the end of KWV’s domination eventually leading to privatisation of the wine industry. This freedom has allowed diversity to flourish and South African wines are becoming very exciting especially with Bordeaux-style blends, Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, their own special grape variety.

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