Welcome to third instalment in a series of Saffa Sessions, hosted by our very own Cape Crusader, John Khayser. Many regular of Vino Towers will know that John has a bit of a bias towards the wines of the Western Cape and tonight is all about getting down and nerdy with him.

With the theme being 'Bordeaux Blends' which are often called "Cape Bordeaux blends" in South Africa, you'll be tasting wines that offer a unique twist on the classic Bordeaux style. Made from grapes like Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc, these wines showcase the rich, diverse flavours of South Africa's wine regions. Stellenbosch is especially known for producing top-notch blends that combine Old World charm with New World energy so be prepared to taste some proper posh stuff without the big price tag!

No need to have been to the previous Saffa Sessions, each tasting is one of a kind but always guaranteed to be hosted by our South African shop legend John. 

This will be fun and educational. Suitable for all levels of drinking experience. There will be a few nibbles to enjoy along side the wines - we promise a good time and great wine.

Please confirm when booking if you have any allergies or dietary requirements. We'll do our best to accommodate. 

No physical ticket required, just bring a copy of your order confirmation (on a phone is fine). 

Please note that we kindly ask attendees not to wear strong aftershave or perfume for the event. This sounds like a silly request, but we try and keep our tasting room as a controlled environment so that only the wine fumes invade our nostrils.

Tickets are non-refundable.

We adore our wonky old building. All we regret is that the staircase to our first floor tasting room isn't overly forgiving and as such rules us out from being accessible. So sorry for the inconvenience it may cause.
