It’s fitting that headline Sandton restaurant and bar Zioux – host of a special tasting of wines from the Durbanville Wine Valley on September 5 – declares that ‘we are all prisoners of our own minds…break free!’ This wine event certainly promises to do just that: expand the horizons of all wine-curious who sign up to participate.
On offer will be top-flight South African winemakers showcasing some 30 wines for tasting with canapés as well as an exclusive masterclass in Sauvignon Blanc – a variety for which Durbanville Wine Valley is most awarded. Here is the opportunity to discover what makes the Durbanville Wine Valley as successful as it is in producing world-class wines.
Represented will be some of the country’s most renowned wineries: De Grendel, Durbanville Hills, Bloemendal, D’Aria, Groot Phesantekraal, Nitida, Klein Roosboom, Meerendal, Diemersdal and Maastricht. A handful of them will go on to present the exclusive masterclass with six wines paired with small bites. The masterclass is limited to 19 participants only, so booking sooner rather than later is advised.
The location for the tasting makes the event a highlight too. Zioux was conceived by chef entrepreneur David Higgs and the team behind the award-winning Marble and Saint restaurants – Dino Constantino and Gary and interior designer Irene Kyriacou. It opened in 2021 near its sister venues.
