Reading, 19:00 - Reading: World of Wine: Spectacular South Africa!

November 8 @ 19:00 - 21:00


Join us for an evening of spectacular New World showstoppers! South Africa has a long and distinguished history of wine production going back over 400 years – it is an old ‘New World’ wine country! Since the end of apartheid, the quality of its wine has risen to showcase the talent that its long history deserves.

It’s a fantastic time for South African winemakers, they are making exciting wines in a broad range of styles. This country’s small band of winemakers, many of whom don’t own their own vineyards are crafting fruit-driven reds, complex oaked reds full-bodied ripe whites, and clean, fresh whites from grape varieties like Chenin Blanc, Chardonnay, the classic white Rhone grape varieties, Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah amongst many others.


(Note, this evening is part of our core 8-week course – book all 8 evenings and save £55! It’s flexible, so if you have to skip an evening you can pick it up next time it runs).

This evening is suitable for all levels of wine knowledge!

This event will include tasting samples of six carefully selected wines, full wine notes & handouts, and a 2-hour interactive presentation, with Q&A, led by our wine tutor.
