International Wine Challenge Dinner
5 January 2018, R 1095 per person
The International Wine Challenge Dinner pits wines from South Africa against wines from the rest of the world (countries include France, Greece, California, Australia, Germany). Each of the six-courses comprising this banquet will be served with an unidentified SA wine, which will be tasted against wines of the same cultivar from another region. Diners indicate their preference after each course, and votes are totalled to determine the winner at the end of the evening.

Who is Roger Jones?
At 21, Roger Jones was the youngest of Queen Elizabeth’s head chefs to run State banquets at Buckingham Palace. He would later take over and transform The Harrow at Little Bedwyn into one of Europe’s finest restaurants. Jones is also a respected wine writer and judge. A few years ago, this regular visitor to The Vineyard agreed to share his passion and knowledge with other Vineyard patrons by collaborating annually with the hotel’s Executive Chef Carl van Rooyen on highly anticipated wine-paired dinners.
