Come wine with us in Sweden
18 June 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm
You are warmly invited to our first Maties Wine Club virtual wine tasting for Stellenbosch University (SU) alumni in Sweden. For this wine experience, we have teamed up with the Waterford wine estate.
This wine estate is situated in the picturesque Blaauwklippen valley, and many consider it to be the hidden Tuscan gem of South Africa. With a philosophy focused on exploring all the senses, it is no wonder that The Waterford Way has become synonymous with prestige, enjoyment and fine wine.
We are honoured to welcome head winemaker, Mark Le Roux, who joined the Waterford team in 2009. Mark will share with us his knowledge and stories as we taste a selection of his prized wines: the Waterford Rose-Mary Rosé 2020, Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2020, Estate Single Vineyard Chardonnay 2017, Kevin Arnold Shiraz 2016 and to finish off, the delectable HeatherLeigh NV dessert wine. It is no secret that wine is best paired with great company, but we also suggest preparing some crackers, olives, and cheese to further enhance your online wine experience.
We have partnered with Capreo Wine Distributors who will ensure that your wine package is delivered to your doorstep within three to five working days. The cost includes free delivery. For each wine package sold, Capreo will donate R50 towards SU’s Bursary Fund.
We have two curated packages available — a standard package (CLICK HERE) and a premium package (CLICK HERE). The standard package includes the Waterford Rose-Mary Rosé 2020, Elgin Sauvignon Blanc 2020 and Kevin Arnold Shiraz 2016, whilst our premium package contains the full selection that will be tasted. We suggest opening the wines 20 minutes before the tasting.
