The Reciprocal Wine Trading Company's Annual Tasting

Reciprocal has a very good selection of imported wines and spirits and, once a year, they come down to Cape Town so that their good customers, trade and media can taste a selection of these. This is a chance to taste before you buy and people were putting in orders for these iconic wines and enjoying this unique chance to experience these excellent foreign wines. We certainly were very pleased to be invited. You, too, can order these wines from Reciprocal. Check out their web site http://www.reciprocal.co.za
Currently, they stock wines from these wine regions: Argentina (3), Australia (3), California (4), France - Alsace (3). France - Armagnac (2), France - Bordeaux (109), France - Burgundy (147), France - Champagne (54), France - Loire (11), France - Rhone (63), Germany - Mosel (9), Hungary (2), Italy (30), New Zealand (16), Portugal (3), Southern France - fortified (31), Spain (22). Reciprocal is also the importer of Riedel glasses
No one can complain about starting an event like this with a taste of Louis Roederer Champagne. Kelly Helberg from the International Hotel School manned this table
The other Champagnes on offer. The Jacquinot was enjoyed by many people; they told us!

It is on two levels. Here wine journalist and educator Tim James listens to Michael. It was a very well attended tasting
Some canapés were provided. The Burgundy Pinots and Chardonnays were superb
