Agulhas Wine Triangle Launch ( Strand Street )
September 19 @ 18:00 - 20:00R150
This tasting will be the first-ever tasting of this new wine route, est 2019.
The Agulhas Plain, home to the southernmost tip of Africa and the meeting place of the Indian and Atlantic Oceans, is believed to have been formed more than 900 million years ago, once having been part of Antarctica.
Thousands of flora species flourish in this region characterised by outstretched sand plains, wetlands, gravelly bottomlands and extensive limestone and calcareous dunes. Until fifteen years ago, all of the wineries used to be agricultural or cattle and sheep farms. The wineries have achieved amazing success by experimenting with different blends, cultivars and flavours. The consistently cool, moderate climate between Walker Bay and Cape Agulhas and the mineral-rich soil have proven to be perfect for making a fine range of wines.
Join us in a walk-round tasting in the company of the eight producers who form the membership. Taste fine wine from Sijnn, Olivedale, Ghost Corner, Bruce Jack, Black Oystercatcher, Strandveld, Lomond and Trizanne Signature Wines.
