Wine Concepts, with branches in Newlands and on Kloof Street, will host their 8th annual Seductive Sauvignon festival this Friday, August 27th, from 5 to 9pm.
It will be held in the salubrious surroundings of one of my favourite hotels, The Vineyard Hotel and Spa, in Newlands. If you get a chance, check out the pool there, it’s a knockout. As if that wasn’t enough, the oldest tortoise in Cape Town roams the grounds, munching grass and occasionally laying eggs in front of surprised guests.
Tickets cost R100, and it will be an opportunity for you to sip, slurp and spit your way through over 60 different bottles of Sauvignon Blancs and Cabernet Sauvignon.
If you like what you’re drinking you’ll be able to buy at special rates from Wine Concepts.
As Mike Bampfield Duggan will have had a large hand in selecting the range on offer I imagine there’ll be some delicious wines at fantastic prices.
I’ve got my ticket already, I can’t wait, see you there!!
And, before you go, we have a half case of 6 mixed Sauvignon Blancs to give away to one lucky person.
To win, you have to be the first person back with the answer to the following question.
What percentage of grapes planted in South Africa are Sauvignon Blanc? (Hint, 2009 are the last figures available)
