KGB Unwined Wine Appreciation Courses

Wine Appreciation Courses
Whether you are looking for a new hobby, the perfect present for a loved one or friend, or just hoping to literally “UnWined”, then this is the course for you.
These UnWined courses, previously very successfully hosted by Cathy Marston for 8 years, are being re-launched in March 2014 and powered by Karen Glanfield.
The courses offer a great setting to share any questions you have ever wanted to ask about what’s in your glass or how it actually got there. In addition, this is a wonderfully sociable and relaxed way for wine lovers to get together and of enjoy a large range of proudly South African wines. Share with your family and friends and get a group together for a fun-filled evening.
Each week a winemaker, or prominent personality from a respected wine estate, will bring a range of wines to savour. We will cover a white and red grape type and you will be treated to a variety of at least 6 wines at each session.
The line up is as follows (in no particular order):
Chardonnay & Pinot Noir
Sauvignon Blanc & Cabernet Sauvignon
Semillon & Merlot
Viognier & Shiraz
Chenin Blanc & Pinotage
All other - this can cover any mix of Other Cultivars, Bubbly, Ports, Dessert Wines etc
Where – Vineyard Hotel, Colinton Road, Newlands, Cape Town
Dates - Tuesdays, March 11th, 18th, 25th & April 1st, 8th and 15th
