Cult Cabs and Cheeses

Cabernet sauvignon is the king of reds, and the French Bordeaux wines have lead the quality challenge of this majestic grape for decades.

Today, Bordeaux wine remains the world’s most popular and sought after wine. It is the number one wine purchased by collectors for cellaring all over the world. Bordeaux wine dominates the auction sales market. The success or failure of a Bordeaux en primeur (futures) dictates the pricing of wines in every other wine region in the world.

Scarcity, global demand and scores can make for some eye watering price tags so we’ve put together a sample of two Bordeaux reds, a right and left bank with 2 of South Africa's best Bordeaux styled blends for our guests to enjoy in a remarkable and unforgettable Masterclass. So we have put together 6 outstanding Bordeaux producers from communes on the right and left banks for our guests to enjoy. Hosted by South Africa’s most respected wine personality, Michael Fridjhon.

Join us as we taste across some of the world's most coveted labels.
