July wine tastings
02 July, Bizoe wines
Bisous is French for a little kiss – the inspiration for the name of the Bizoe winery. Tonight, let Bizoe handcrafted wines brush your lips at our complimentary tasting. Rikus Neethling believes in a hands-on approach for his small-batch, artisanal wines. Then join us for dinner!
09 July, Thelema Wine estate
Imagine wines from Helshoogte Pass – the highest and probably coolest of Stellenbosch’s vineyards. Imagine delicious wine influenced by the excellent Elgin terroir … Actually, don’t imagine, just come to our free Thelema wine-tasting!
16 July, First Sighting Wines
Discover the delightfully drinkable wines made at the tip of Africa, at Strandveld Wines, between Elim and Cape Agulhas, 9km from the sea. First Sighting Sauvignon Blanc, with 97 points, won the Platinum Medal at the 2018 Decanter World Wine Awards.
23 July, Rascallion Wines
Rascallion wines have been crafted for fruity and aromatic notes on the palate. They pair well with foods and they’re great on their own! Come and “talk Rascallion”; come and meet these new, award-winning wines and the people who make them.
30 July, Vriesenhof Vineyards
These wines are made with a focus on the alchemy between soil, climatic conditions and vines: “The winemaker is a humble servant of nature. His role is to give nature the opportunity to produce the best possible wine.” Don’t miss our Vriesenhof tasting!
Tastings are from 18h00 – 19h00 every Monday, year round, and are staged at our Garden Lounge. We look forward to seeing you there!
