Wat je gaat doen

We will be going on a virtual tour focusing on South African wine and its history. Together, we will be traveling back in time, right from the very origins of wine-making in the country under European influence, up until today.

While we will be exploring the popular wine valleys of Stellenbosch & Franschhoek, we will also be immersing ourselves into a few hidden gems which I personally cannot wait for you to discover.

Through this journey, we will be looking at the extremely varied South African wine production. Home to unique products such as Pinotage or MCC (Méthode Cap Classique), the diversity of the country's offering allows almost any wine aficionado to find and hold on to their cherished poison.

We will end off our time together with a fun quiz to make sure you're a hit at your next dinner party. Get ready!

Last but not least, thanks to my co-hosting sommelier friend, on this activity you will learn how to properly taste wines. We will share some unique tips and strategies on how to recognize the key varieties & invite you to identify the essential markers used by the best blind tasting masters during their international competitions.

>> This Experience is great for team-building. Book a private experience for your group. Is your group larger than my listed max group size for private groups? Send me a message.

Hi! My name is Manfred but you can call me Mannie. Born and raised in France, I hold a B.A. in History from the Université de Toulouse. After a few years working for a major French winery specializing in unique wines from the 'Jura' region, I emigrated to South Africa, my second home. This was 7 years ago already!

Living in Cape Town is a privilege for any wine enthusiast as the Western Cape region is the epicenter of South African wine production. Sharing my passion for History and for Wine is something I am truly excited about... In fact, I have recently created a wine tasting club that aims to bring people together over a shared learning and a shared love of wine.

Myself and my co-hosting sommelier friend would love you to take part in this online history class of South African wines! Bring some wine along, if you have :)

We participated in A Brief History of South African Wines. It was a delightful experience with Manfred. They gave us a unique perspective about wines and discussed the different win areas with an expertise we wouldn't have had without this experience. We enjoyed it thoroughly.

The only downside is it really made me want to jump on a plane and see these wine districts for myself, but I dont see that happening!

Mannie and Cyril are fantastic -- so personable, knowledgeable, and accommodating. I scheduled a private, virtual wine tasting for a group of 20 last week and we learned so much about the history and production of South African wine. We also tasted three varietals -- a Chenin Blanc, Sauvingnon Blanc, and Pinotage -- and Mannie was so helpful in recommending cheese and charcuterie pairings. Overall, a great experience!

You’ll leave this experience making plans to go back to your favorite wine shop to purchase more South African wines! And if we could travel you’d be booking your trip! Mannie is passionate about South African wine, and he made it even more interesting by showing photos of the various regions. South Africa really is a diverse country. I really appreciated that Mannie communicated in advance of the seminar to provide suggestions on wines we might want to purchase to discuss at the tasting. He was very committed to making sure that everyone had a great experience-and we did!🍷🍷!

Great experience. I bought it as a birthday gift for my father and the family loved it. They learned so much about South African wine. Very in-depth knowledge. Thanks!

Meer tips

You DO NOT need to be a wine expert to enjoy this class. It really is about wanting to learn more about wines while giving you a chance to ask that question you've always had at the back of your mind about the wine world in general. Get ready for us to make you travel from glass to bottle!
