Warwick Estate & Vilafonté
Wednesday, 12th July 2017, 6.30 - 8.30pm
Hosted by Mike Ratcliffe
Described by Wine Enthusiast as one of the "Top 100 wines in the World", Vilafonté is produced South Africa's Paarl region, around sixty kilometres east of Cape Town. The winery produces two superb wines - Series C & Series M. The former is a robust, age-worthy Cabernet blend & the latter a richer, riper Merlot & Malbec-based bottling.
Warwick Estate was established in the mid-1960s when Stan Ratcliffe purchased the land on which the winery sits following an exstensive search for 'South Africa's finest terroir'. The winery has grown in popularity ever since & is now firmly established as one of the nation's greatest. Grape growing & winemaking at Warwick Estate is currently overseen by third generation family member Mike Ratcliffe, who is also one of the co-founders of Vilafonté.
Hedonism Wines is excited to welcome Mike himself to the store to host the tasting, present a selection of different wines & discuss the past, present & future of these exciting estates.
Guests at this very special tasting will sample a number of wines from each estate including vertical tastings of Vilafonté Series M 2005, 2012 & 2015, Vilafonté Series C 2010, 2014 & 2015 & Warwick Trilogy 2007, 2009 & 2012.
