Don’t miss out on sampling the listed wines of this year’s funkiest and most innovative wine competition yet. The Sommeliers Selection is young, fun, plugged-in, and targets the everyday wine drinker through new and inventive ways. In a nutshell the competition is fresh, new and different, yet still serious about wine, guaranteeing the highest standard of wines selected.
After an intensive judging process (and tasting) by the panel of esteemed South African Sommeliers the wines were selected for this ‘one of a kind’ wine list, and they can’t wait to share their favorites with you. The Reserve at The Taj Hotel in Cape Town, in conjunction with First Thursdays – a global trend fast growing in popularity, whereby likeminded people explore art galleries and cultural events on the first Thursday of every month – will play host to the Sommeliers Selection Listed Wines on Thursday, 1 October. Join fellow wine enthusiasts as you sip, sample and savour a selection of the listed wines. Doors open at 5pm and tickets cost R150 per person, which includes entry and tastings of the wines on show.
For that ultimate wine tasting experience a representative from the South African Sommeliers Association will host a White Wine Tasting at 5:30pm and a Red Wine Tasting at 7:30pm, on the day. Limited to 40 people per tasting to ensure absolute exclusivity guests will not only get to sample some of South Africa’s finest wines presented by an internationally recognized sommelier, but will also receive the six wines tasted as a gift to take home. The cost for the White Wine Tasting is R650 per person, and the cost for the Red Wine Tasting is R880 per person. Both tastings include entry to the showcase as well.
Make the most of the evening and use the opportunity to relax and unwind, but not forgetting the wine sales and show specials on offer. To avoid disappointment pre-book your seat for both the tutored tasting and showcase through www.webtickets.co.za.
