We got to taste six wines last night; An Unwooded Chardonnay from DeMeye in Stellenbosch and 5 from Oak Valley in Elgin - two wooded Chardonnay's and three Pinot Noirs (including their 5 star 2009 Pinot Noir). You get a folder that includes notes on tasting and sheets for you to make all your own notes on.
As I've said before, the only thing I love more than drinking wine, is learning about it, and this course is such a red environment to learn in. Six glasses in front of you, surrounded by bottles and bottles of amazing wines, Wine At The Mill makes for the perfect venue for Cathy's bubbly personality and the guest winemaker's chat.
We were lucky enough to have Chris from Oak Valley chatting to us last night. I love it so much when the winemaker is so young - it really does embody my whole feeling that wine is not just for people who have been drinking it for 40 years. Wine is accessible and delicious and for everyone. And it doesn't matter if you don't know what the difference between a Pinotage and a Pinot Noir is as long as you're enjoying what you're drinking.
