Cork and Fork: South African Wines

  • The Coffee Grounds 4212 Southtowne Drive Eau Claire, WI, 54701 United States (map)

Last year, Eric and Julie were fortunate to spend some time in South Africa. They went on a safari, lodged in some beautiful places with lions just outside their sleeping quarters, and drank wine. Wine actually has a long tradition in South Africa dating back to the 17th century. They’ve developed their own system of designations of quality and craft. Kristi Hughes from The Fermented Connection will be dining with us and discussing the wines that we will be drinking.
