October 19th / 6:30 to 7:30PM
The Beet at Ellwood’s (formerly the Community Room)
Wine by Ellwood’s Indulge Manager, Lucy Cassinera-White
Join Cape Town native son and Origins Farm operator Alistar Harris, his wife Rebecca Ponder, and travel advisor Stacy Luks, co-founder of Slow Food RVA, on an armchair journey of tutored wine tastings, as they preview their unique, locally-curated small-group food & wine tour of the tip of South Africa, scheduled for February 2016.
“The best-kept secret in the wine world right now might just be South Africa”, says Wine Spectator magazine (June, 2015). The Experience Cape Town: Land of Exquisite Food & Wine tour has been personally designed by Alistar & Rebecca to showcase the cosmopolitan Mother City’s iconic World Heritage-listed natural and historical sites, its stunning physical beauty, the best of its surrounding regions’ more than 600 vineyards, and its distinctive cuisine.
Now here’s you chance to get a taste of South Africa’s wine for yourself! Ellwood’s Indulge Manager Lucy Cassinera-White will offer guided tastings of 6 Cape region wines in the store’s newly-opened Beet Café against a backdrop of images of Cape Town’s Big 7. Guests will receive a primer on the history of the South African wine industry, and learn about safari and other travel add-on opportunities across Southern Africa, including South Africa, Botswana and Namibia.
$5 | includes tasting of 6 South African wines
All attendees are entered into a drawing for a prize package including: 6-bottle case of South African wine, an Ellwood Thompson’s gift card, and 2 hours of consulting time with Stacy on your bucket list travel dreams!
