Sauvignon Blanc stories with Charles Hopkins

Cozy up for a Sauvignon Blanc inspired evening – part workshop, part tasting, part feasting on 18 June. The evening is hosted by cellar master Charles Hopkins as he guides guests through De Grendel’s Sauvignon blanc making process. Tour the cellar and take part in a workshop, tasting six wines, including international examples. Then eat!

Dispelling the myth that white wines are for summer days only, Chef Ian Bergh takes on the creative challenge to match Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon with winter food. For season’s sake, Shiraz also makes an appearance.
