World of Wine: USA & South Africa

World of Wine: USA & South Africa

Join us for a Wonderful 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 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

99% of our reviews on TripAdvisor are rated five-star: "Learnt so much! Did an intro evening class to wine tasting based on wines from the Loire. Even though I spent a year living in this region, I learned a lot more about the different vineyards and came away with a lot of handy tips for picking a wine I'd like. I'm not a huge white wine drinker but was pleasantly surprised with a couple. I've already put my knowledge to good use in the supermarket today - picking a wine I never normally would have based on what I learned last night, and I have to admit, it's pretty good. A great evening and have just booked another evening in a few months time" (farmersto, via TripAdvisor)
