What: Meet the Winemaker Series: BlankBottle Tasting with Pieter Walser
Cost: £35 per person
BlankBottle is one of our all-time favourite producers here at Philglas and Swiggot, with an almost cult-like following amongst our customers, and for a good reason! Pieter Walser is one of the most innovative winemakers in the world and is the producer of some of South Africa's most coveted wines that you've probably never tasted. Within BlankBottle there are no two wines alike, and about 30% of the wines are once-off limited editions. Pieter crafts unique wine blends, picking about 35 grape varieties from 60 vineyards around the Cape. Each of his wines is bottled and labeled according to the unique story behind it. The main aim of BLANKBOTTLE wines is to provide an honest, personal taste with no preconceived expectations that come with certain vintages or styles.
Seeing as Pieter makes so many eclectic wines, we thought a simple sit-down event wouldn't do it justice, so we are going to crack open over 12 of his wines for everyone to try. This is a casual standing event running from 6:30 pm onwards where Pieter will go through the wines and then be on hand to answer any questions and recant the captivating stories he is known for.
Join us on what promises to be an enjoyable and unforgettable evening.
