South African wine has been an important part of the Six Nations Wine Challenge since its inception ten years ago. Over the decade the availability and the quality has grown in leaps and bounds and the Wine of Show last year was claimed by their marvelous sparkling wine the Villiera Wines Monro Cap Classique 2007.
This year South African Tourism and South African Airways have thrown their weight behind the event and will be very visible at the Thinkers & Drinkers Wine and Food Tasting event at Doltone House, Sydney on October 3. Bookings available on this site.
In 2014 the major Trade Event VIN International will be featuring imported wines from all over the world and a trip to Stellenbosch is planed as a prize for one lucky trade visitor reinforcing South Africa’s position here in the Australian wine industry.
