An opportunity not to be missed. We are extremely fortunate
to have winemaker Andrew Gunn of Iona Vineyards in Elgin,
South Africa with us in February. He will share his wines,
knowledge and passion over a scrumptious dinner. Chef Lorraine
McSweeney has created a seasonal menu that will perfectly
compliment each of the wines served. Andrew will talk you
through the different Iona wines while you enjoy drinking
them! It is a rare opportunity to sample some of South Africa’s
top wines in a magnificent setting at a great price.
|FOOD & WINE
The wines of Iona come from a dramatically unique site in the Cape
Winelands. The vineyards are on a mountain plateau 420 metres above
sea level, surrounded by the Kogelberg Nature Reserve, and overlooking
the Atlantic Ocean. In a country where cool sites are precious,
these vineyards are like gold – the grapes ripening up to
two months later than other Cape vineyards and in perfect balance.
Iona is South Africa's coolest vineyard site.
Andrew Gunn and family acquired this beautiful, but run-down
apple farm in 1997. It was renamed "IONA" after
the remote, spiritual island off the west coast of Scotland.
The Gunns can trace our ancestry to the Vikings that landed
in Scotland in the 900s, hence the Viking longboat emblem
on the labels.
Since their first release in 2001, the wines of Iona have
quickly made a name as being among the finest in the world.
Hope you can make it.
