South African Wine Tasting

PA3 cordially invites you to 

Wines of South Africa

Saturday, October 8, 2022

6:00 pm – 7:30 pm.

Via Zoom


South Africa is one of the world's top 10 wine-producing countries. High quality South African wines are often sold at very reasonable prices, so they can be much more affordable than wines from other areas of the world. Wine came to South Africa with Dutch traders in the 1600s, although the wines
didn't enter the international markets until the Mid 1990’s when the Apartheid system ended and the International trade sanction were lifted. Today, about 70 percent of the grapes grown in South Africa go to wine production. Most of South Africa's wine regions are located in the Southwestern part of the
country, known as Western Cape.

As always, our sommelier Sebastian Koncurat with lead the tasting and will enlighten us about wine production in South Africa.

We will be tasting two reds and two whites, which may be ordered from Public Wines.  The cost for the four wines is $82.
