After meeting and brief introductions we will briefly walk over to the first venue to discuss South African wine history, viticulture and viniculture and a little tutorial on how to taste wine at an inner city winery and taste six of their wine which they produce. Then we will walk across to the second venue and do a food and wine tasting influenced by current trends in the industry, here we will taste five different wines and some local cheeses. The last stop is a little walk away along one of the trendiest streets in Cape Town and that is on the way to experience natural wines, five wines made with minimal intervention and to explore various food pairing options. This is where the tour will end.
I am passionate about sharing my knowledge with people as well as helping them understand wine better than before. I am keen to help people understand how wine can be used to enhance a dining experience by better understanding what wines are suited to which foods and why. I am one of a handful of certified sommeliers in S.A. currently working as such in one of the top restaurants in Cape Town. I have completed a diploma in wine, WSET level 3 as well as the intro course through the Court of Master Sommeliers. I was also part of the South African Wine Tasting team that took part in the World Blind Tasting Championships in France in 2014 and as Captain in 2015.

We will explore the small wine bar scene in the city center and enjoy a food and wine pairing as we walk through the city sampling some of the many different styles of wines being produced in South Africa. These bars all have an enfaces on natural wines, while not ignoring some of the key commercial producers. We will also take a sneak peak into an inner city winery just to make sure all questions are answered.
