South Africa's wine culture started in the 1600s, almost two centuries before the first European grapes ever grew in California. In fact, part of Napoleon's "deal" in exile was to receive a certain ration of South African dessert wine.
This class + dinner will really bring South African wine into focus with an expert pairing by Chef Marty Glucklich of traditional cuisine with today's modern southern hemisphere wines. Get ready to explore a whole new wine world full of southern stars.
