Later in the month on Thursday 24 May, Black Elephant Vintners from Franschhoek, South Africa will also be joining us for an Uncorked wine event.
Kevin will be joining us from the winery for a particularly amazing sensory wine tasting where we partner wines with a curated playlist to enhance the flavours. We will start the night with some MCC sparkling wine which is currently not available in the UK then will be guided through vinous pleasure by Kevin and his wines alongside myself. The beautifully curated playlist will enhance and change the way that the wine tastes and is enjoyed.
I have long believed in the power of your surroundings, the company and the ambience in helping to get the most from experiences and especially wine. This will put these theories to the test and we can indulge ourselves with food and wine whilst on the beach here at fifteen Cornwall. This will be a tasting like no other and one not to be missed.
As producer, Black Elephant Vintners focuses on identifying and procuring quality estate-grown grapes cultivated within the Franschhoek valley and surrounding regions from which it produces and crafts quality wines.
As distributor, they act as an agent to private cellars that wish to leverage off the wine distribution network and sales and marketing platforms. They act as a virtual co-op for these wineries by representing independent boutique wineries that wish to have their brands marketed under the Black Elephant Vintners umbrella.
Their wines originate from, and are produced under, the “Wine of Origin Franschhoek” banner. The exception to this is their incomparable Back Roads label, whose philosophy is to produce wines from carefully selected vineyards, blocks and grapes that display unique and exceptional potential – be it in or beyond the borders of Franschhoek.
Their wines represent their sincerest endeavours to bring the Franschhoek experience to all wine lovers for the sole purpose of enjoyment and as an expression of our appreciation for the good life.
Find out more about both these events here and we look forward to seeing you soon.
