25-Year Celebratory Tasting Series with Ken Forrester Wines
Ken Forrester invites friends of wine to their 25-Year Celebratory Tasting Series, a calendar of four themed wine tastings, hosted by Ken himself at their old barrel cellar / tasting lounge in Stellenbosch.
The 25-Year Celebratory Tasting Series will feature rare wines from both Ken Forrester Wines’ captivating range, and from Ken’s personal private cellar. Four themed tastings, inspired by his journey, will provide an opportunity to taste a range of wines from the past two decades.
At the first of these tastings, 25 Years of Chenin Blanc on 4 April at 6.30pm, Ken (aka ‘Mr Chenin’) will present Chenin Blanc in its various guises, following which sumptuous cheese boards will be served family-style.
The remaining three tastings – aptly named 25 Years of Stellenbosch (29 May), 25 Years of Winemaking (31 July) and 25 Years of Inspiration (25 September) – will delight all wine-lovers, and feature wines from Stellenbosch and around the world sourced during the past 25 years.
In November, the signing of the title deed will be celebrated with a long-table luncheon in front of the original manor house on the Ken Forrester Estate with delicious seasonal dishes, live music and wines from the Ken Forrester collection.
All proceeds from the tasting series will be donated to Spark Schools, an educational institution committed to providing top-class education to the children of the Winelands. “This is a cause that we care about deeply at Ken Forrester Wines, and we are proud to give back to the community that we have been a part of for so long,” says Ken.
Each tasting costs R150 per person or R250 per couple and is limited to 30 guests. Pre-booking is essential and tickets are available at www.quicket.co.za or in the tasting room.
