This is a wonderful Christmas present for family and friends who like wine!
In South America, countries vie for the Copa Sudamericana trophy. With Australian Rules Football you have the Premiership Cup. South Africa participates in the Standard Bank Cup for cricket. New Zealand has the Chappell-Hadlee Trophy for cricket. In keeping with this competitive vein, we will have the South World Wine Society’s Fifth Annual Five Nations Cup.
This will be a blind tasting consisting of a red and a white flight of wine. Each flight will include a one red varietal and one red varietal from each of the 5 southern hemisphere nations. It will be a hotly contested battle with your votes determining the winner. Who will be crowned the next SWWS Champion? There are sure to be some surprises. So come out and kick off 2010 by tasting some great wines from New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, Chile and Argentina. In past 5 Nations Cups, Australia and Chile have been winners. Will this be the year for New Zealand, Argentina, or South Africa? Come and find out!
As this is a BLIND wine tasting, the wines will be revealed AFTER we vote for our favourites, so you will not see the wine list in our announcement. As usual, along with these wines we will be providing a great selection of appetizers.
Our speaker is Mr. Paul Watkin, past SWWS cellar master and currently wine educator and wine agent with Seacove Group. Paul is a very knowledgeable speaker about wines, and wine/food pairings. People eagerly wait yearly for this event and to hear Paul. So sign up before it’s too late!
These tickets would make a wonderful Christmas gift to family or friends that enjoy wine.
