hosted by Humble Grape
South Africa is the buzz of the wine world at the moment and so we plan to taste a flight of proper artisan small-scale wines.
The scene in SA is vibrant , endowed with superb terroir and a raft of exciting grape varieties. We will be showing smart, dynamic producers who are fighting for supremacy on the ever expanding New World wine frontier.
The tasting will run the gamut of fresh crisp, textured whites to medium bodied, soft tannin food friendly reds and include a few surprises along the way to challenge the way you may think about South African wines!
£45 per person 7 artisan SA wines.
Along with your tasting of six world-class wines, you'll enjoy a selection of delicious cheese, Iberico Jamon, chorizo, marcona almonds, olives, artisan bread, and wonderfully aromatic olive oil from Salamanca, Spain.
Why are Humble Grape tastings different?
· The Wine: We are independent, so only choose wines we think are excellent quality to value - NOT what senior corporates tell us to show. To that end, wines that tasters rank highly are kept on the Humble Grape list; those that do not are dropped. New regions and wines are constantly being introduced.
· The Evening: Evenings are relaxing and entertaining. Yes, you will learn a lot. But it is fun, not pretentious and most people stay on after the tasting to chat and have a drink.
· The People: Although we can’t claim specific deals were done or lovebirds introduced at our wine tastings – we have definitely fostered a group of fun regulars from the City, legal fraternity and local corporates who have become friends.
· The Food: This is not your usual bowl of crackers fare. We pride ourselves with serving interesting canapés that compliment and bring out the best in our wine selections.
