South Africa Redefined: Wine Master Class
South African wine master class at Republique Resturant in Los Angeles with some of the most innovative, proud, creative winemakers direct from SA to LA! What an honor to spend a couple hours learning from

The the wines poured were an amazing example of the talent and care that goes into SA wines.
My key take aways:
-The soil in The Western Cape where the majority of wine grapes are grown is very diverse.
-The acidity in South African wines is uniquely higher than average and consistent. It adds so much texture to the wines that whites can even be enjoyed at room temperature.
-SA is more advanced in technology and research than its counterparts (France and the U.S. for example)
Bottom line South Africa is producing world class wines based on sites, technology and passion!
