The first rule of Wine Club is you don't miss Wine Club.
This month we're exploring Old World vs New World wines!
Old World wines, which are mostly European, are typically lighter wines with lower alcohol levels, while New World wines are often bigger and bolder, with a higher alcohol content and sweet, fruity flavours. This is largely down to the environment in which these wines are grown; grapes grown in Argentina (New World) are going to get more sun, and so be riper, sweeter and more alcoholic, than those grown in France (Old World). Join us this month at wine club to discover the difference between grapes grown in the Southern Hemisphere and grapes grown in the north. The wines are always tasty and we love learning something while we drink wine together :) - JEMMA XO
At our wine tastings at Fantail & Turtle we pour wines of integrity & authenticity, wines that speak of their terroir, we share stories about the wine-makers that cherish their vineyards and look after the environment. We pour wines for people who care, made by people who care. Sip on a journey through wine on the last Wednesday of every month. Each meeting brings 6 wines, cheese & good company. Hosted by long time wine lover Jemma Grobbelaar.
We stand firmly by our ethos - wine is only as good as the company you drink it with.
