Saturday Wine Seminar: South Africa
February 15, 2020, 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
A place of mind-boggling beauty and unforgettable wines. It’s a dynamic, exciting region, with an outdated reputation abroad as an area for bulk wine production. While South Africa is undeniably still the source of a great deal of innocuous grape juice, there is an evolving wine culture of organic and sustainable growers, an appreciation for old vine vineyards, and marked advancements on the part of winemaking cooperatives to improve production. So, for our seminar on Saturday we aim to draw attention to a region that has long since flown under the radar of New Mexican wine drinking culture, and give South Africa a moment in the spotlight.
