In from the cold: Wines of South Africa

Wednesday, July 17, 2024: 7.20 pm for a 7.30 pm start.

To save you going out on a cold Melbourne winter’s night, we’ve made the long-awaited South African Wines Taste n Talk a Zoom event that you can enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Our special Guest Speaker is Conrad Louw, who will be joining us from his home in Capetown.

Conrad Louw is a former Chairman of the Institute of Cape Wine Masters, a lecturer at the Cape Wine Academy, a wine judge and a regular host of tutored tastings. Conrad is also a member of the Commanderie de Bordeaux and Chairman of a cleverly named wine club, The Old Soaks.

There is no cost for this event but you must register. Purchase of one or more of the recommended South African wines to enjoy during the event is advised, but optional.

If you are new to Zoom, please login at 7.10 pm so that any issues can be sorted out before the session commences at 7.30 pm.

Tour of the Orange Wine Region: Two Places Remaining

Monday September 23, 2024 – Thursday September 26, 2024.

This is an interstate tour you won’t want to miss. If you joined us on the November 2022 tour of Tasmania, you’ll know what we mean. The tour begins with a ‘Welcome to Orange’ dinner on the night of Monday September 23, 2024, followed by three full days of exploring the region’s cellar doors.

The town of Orange is about 256 km west of Sydney by road and is easily accessible by train from Sydney.  Accommodation will be at the Mercure Orange.
