Date:Monday 26th September
From: 6pm to 8.30pm
Whilst all The Wine Society’s wines come with the recommendation of The Society’s buyers, there are few more heartening endorsements than a repeat order from members!
Within The Society’s range there are numerous hardy perennials that maintain their high standards year in, year out. This tasting showcases the wines that you, the members of The Wine Society, love to drink.
Trophy glory and fabulous reviews may aid a wine’s pedigree, but it is the view of the members that is most important. We have therefore chosen 20 of the most regularly purchased and well-reviewed wines from across our range, spanning a variety of styles.
At the end of the night a vote will be held to give everyone the chance to let us know what was their favourite wine and crown the best members’ favourite.
Why not come and try them with us?
THE CAPE CRUSADERS – WINES OF SOUTH AFRICA
Dylan Thomas Suite, The St David’s Hotel & Spa Havannah Street, Cardiff, CF10 5SD
Date: Tuesday 6th September
From: 5.30pm to 8.30pm
There has been quite a buzz in the air at our recent South Africa tastings, and for good reason: the Cape’s wine industry is going from strength to strength, providing an array of exciting and unique bottles made by passionate, innovative growers.
A vibrant and exciting country whose enormously diverse landscape is reflected in its wines, South Africa’s winemaking history dates back over 350 years. The wines produced here bridge the divide between the classicism of the old world, and the contemporary fruit-driven styles of the new.
South Africa is well known for classic Bordeaux-style blends, chenin blanc, pinotage and numerous innovative blends. However, the recent rise of Rhône grapes (red and white) and a treasure trove of old vines from regions such as Swartland have given extra colour to the palette, and we cordially invite you to try the results!
At this informal walk-around tasting we will have the opportunity to discover new and exclusive wines, both from producers with whom we have enjoyed a long-standing relationship, and from those whose wines are newer to our range. We are delighted to welcome a host of winemakers and representatives from estates on a crusade to produce world-class wines, including Kanonkop, The Liberator, De Morgenzon, Meerlust winemaker Chris Williams and Villiera’s Cathy Brewer.
