About the event

South Africa’s winemaking history begins well over 350 years ago. The Dutch settlers and French Huguenots brought vines from their home countries and established vineyards to provide wine to the merchant ships of the Dutch East India Company. 

Taking advantage of the fertile soil, they quickly put their knowledge of growing wine grapes to good use and therefore helping to establish the wine industry in South Africa. The first vineyard was planted in 1655 and the first recorded vintage was released in 1659.

Currently South African wines straddle Old World and New World. The wines often have ripe silky fruit due to a Mediterranean like climate, but also showcase what the over 700-million-year-old soils can offer to give elegance, structure, and finesse.

Many wine critics and writers are saying that South African wines are consistently some of the best value wines in the world.

Join Jeff Trager and Linda Davis as we explore this rich history of Wine at TMU's Wine 101 South Africa!

Your ticket will include your wine tasting and appetizers.  We look forward to seeing you there!
