Gauteng Celebration

Ken Forrester Wines Celebrates 25 Years in Gauteng

Ken Forrester takes to the streets of Gauteng, inviting Jozi and Pretoria friends of wine to their very special 25-Year Celebratory Tasting Series, hosted by Mr.Chenin himself, on 21st and 22nd August respectively.

Bringing the picturesque Stellenbosch winelands to vibrant urban Gauteng, these two not-to-be-missed tastings promise wine-lovers a rare opportunity to sample exciting wines from the past two decades. The first leg takes place in Johannesburg and is hosted by The Hilton Sandton Hotel in Sandton on Wednesday, 21 August 2019, followed by the Pretoria leg at the festive Harlequin Club in Groenkloof on Thursday, 22 August 2019. It is all for a good cause too as all profits will be donated to Spark Schools, a cause very much supported by the Forrester family.

The 25-Year Celebratory Tasting Series will feature rare wines from both Ken Forrester Wines’ captivating range, and from Ken’s personal private cellar. These 2 themed tastings are inspired by his journey, and are simply entitled, “Inspirational Stellenbosch”.

“We are so excited to be presenting tastings to celebrate our 25-Year Anniversary Celebrations to our friends in Jozi and Pretoria. If you didn’t already love Chenin Blanc, you will after these”, says Ken Forrester.

Tickets cost R250 per person and are available on in limited numbers, book soon to avoid disappointment! Included in the ticket price is a welcome drink of the effervescent Sparklehorse Méthode Cap Classique, the wine tasting and post-tasting cheese boards served family-style. Why not book for dinner at one of the restaurants at the Hilton (011 322 1888) or at the Harlequin Club (012 346 7341) and make an evening of it.

All profits 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.
