Meet The Makers

Meet The Makers - our dinner series where you meet the men and women behind your favourite wines - is in full swing! We have the ovens going and the wine flowing! Join us for an evening of delectable food and wines from different wines farms. Get the chance to rub shoulders with the makers behind the wine, while they share ins and outs behind each bottle, their stories and what makes them unique.

Up next is Vilafonté on Wednesday, 17 July.
Vilafonté is the coming together of great wine experience from California and South Africa. The vision that brought together the three founding Vilafonté partners, is the culmination of a life-long dream. An uncompromising determination to produce wines which stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the great wines of the world. Nothing less.
Their philosophy is nurturing a culture of patience in the cellaring and enjoyment of their wines – an artistry to create wines of elegant complexity, structure and longevity.
