Heritage Wine Tasting review by Anthony Smook

Posted on Thu June 2, 2016.

I was privileged to receive an invitation to a very exclusive tasting of vintage red wines of South Africa on Courchevel a farm situated in Franschhoek.

The moment I walked into the farm house to attend the Wine Tasting, I sensed that this would be the most special wine event ever for me. South African vintage wines from the 1950’s 60’s and 70’s together with some of the most influential personalities from the wine industry in one room.

This set the scene for the tasting which would not only present amazing wines, but also embrace the South African Wine Heritage through personal accounts by these accomplished wine makers, who were involved with the process more than 50 years ago. The heart of the industry joined together to celebrate and capture our unique wine culture, history and achievements.
