Over the years, he received his certificate in Wine Judging from the Cape Wine and Spirit Education Trust and became a member of various wine tasting clubs and committees.

Lockdown made us realise here at Carte-du-Vin that Zoom tasting evenings are a great way to meet our customers from all around the UK.




They have proved very successful and informative and being joined by experts from South Africa is a bonus!


Not only do you get to sample 4 wines but we provide recipe ideas to accompany each glass (if you don't want to cook you get Supermarket alternatives too!).


The price is £65 per pack


Here is a testimonial from a previous evening


" Awesome evening tasting wine after being shipped a half case of wonderful wines. Great lockdown therapy. Now time to order some special South African wines! "


As we all know due to COVID there have been a lot of hardships around the world.


The South African wine industry has suffered more than most as their Government has stopped the sale of alcohol now on 3 separate occasions. The vineyard's revenue also relies on overseas visitors, who enjoy their tasting rooms and hospitality and due to travel restrictions this has ceased too!


We are proud to be supporting them in any way we can


Please join us for this Masterclass !
