A tasting experience with Cloof Wines
11 June 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Please join us on Friday, 11 June 2021 as we delve into the world of ‘wine in a can’ with Hennie Huskisson, general manager and head winemaker at Cloof Wine Estate in the small Swartland town of Darling.
Although Australia was probably the first to try the idea of putting wine in a can – as early as 1996 – South Africa has been slow on the uptake. The idea is only just catching on in the SA wine industry and one wonders how popular wine in a can really is.
Join Hennie and me as we discuss these topics and others while tasting exactly how well the canned Cloof Wines are doing compared to their bottled counterparts.

(Remember, the three bottled wines have a limited availability in the UK. The principle of first come, first served will accordingly apply for these wines.)
The Saxenburg Wines from our last tasting are available for ordering on the same page.
*Tasting tubes comprising 50 ml of the bottled wine are available and you may use these for tasting purposes. That means you can open the bottle at a later date.
