We are commencing our Strand Street tastings again!
Starting Thursday 8th October we will be back in our Thursday tasting schedule at 18h15 for 18h30 – 20h00, every 2 weeks. To be safe, there will be no more than four people seated at a six-seater table, with a maximum of twenty in the shop.
Thursday 8th October – Thelema – Sutherland
We are delighted to announce that we are hosting Thelema – one of South Africa’s most successful grower-producers. By the mid 90’s Thelema’s wines sold out within a month after release, making it one of the most sought-after wine estates in South Africa. The Webb family describe Thelema as “one of the most beautiful places on earth”. Success continues with their Elgin property, Sutherland, acquired in 2002.
Rudi Schultz, who has been cellarmaster at Thelema since 2000, will present the wines.
