What you'll do

>>> With the participation of award-winning sommelier Tawanda Marume <<<

For this online experience, we recommend you have with you at least a bottle of South African Chardonnay from one of the following regions: Stellenbosch, Elgin, Franschhoek, Tulbagh, Constantia, Swartland, Hemel-en-Aarde.


In this Wine Pairing Masterclass, you will take off on a unique virtual wine adventure all the way from South Africa. The Cape Wine Tasting team is looking forward to welcoming you on an exciting session around the Art of Food & Wine Pairing!

During this interactive class, a local celebrated sommelier will guide you through a presentation explaining how general attributes of wines compliment dishes either home-made or in a restaurant. In accordance with our monthly theme, we invite you to open one or more specific wine(s) with us and pair them with different snacks, which will help you identify key tasting characteristics & flavours. We will then explain:


• What are the classic wine and food pairings?

• How to choose a wine to compliment a dish?

• What a sommelier looks out for to create the perfect combination?


Get ready for us to make you travel from glass to bottle :)

Note: This online experience is great for groups, you may book a private experience. You DO NOT need to be a wine expert to enjoy this class!

Hi!
My name is Manfred Levesque, I am the founder of Cape Wine Tasting. Born and raised in France, I graduated from the Université de Toulouse, where I started working for a winery specializing in unique wines from the 'Jura' region, like yellow & straw wine.
I then moved to South Africa, my second home...almost 10 years ago already!

Living in Cape Town is a privilege for any wine enthusiast as the Western Cape is the epicentre of South African wine production. Sharing my passion for wine is something I am truly excited about: thanks to this wine tasting club, we aim to bring people together over a shared learning and a shared love of wine.

Cape Wine Tasting proudly provides unique wine experiences from South Africa to guests all around the world, thanks to an amazing team of expert sommeliers I cannot wait for you to meet!

Enjoyed the wine tasting and discussion of pairing wine with food. While I already had knowledge about the type of wine discussed, I learned some new things that put the wine in the South African context. The hosts were very personable, we shared some laughs and they provided information and anecdotes drawn from their own experience.

Mannie really puts his heart into his presentation on South African wine history. I've visited the country multiple times but still learned a lot. His pride in his home and earlier years spent in France give him a unique and deep knowledge of Old and New World wines that shows in his presentation. I highly recommend this experience for wine and travel lovers!

I had a lot of fun joining the experience hosted by Manfred. While I have some knowledge of South Africa and had been to South Africa to explore some areas of the wine country I stilled learned things including the names of lesser known regions and up and coming producers. He also personalized the experience with anecdotes from his life and wine travels and he gave me a snapshot of how Covid has affected the South African wine industry. I would highly recommend this to anyone with an interest in South African wine.

What a fantastic experience! Mannie will take you on a riveting virtual tour of South African wine regions and leave you with newfound knowledge and appreciation of South African wine, history, and culture. Mannie's enthusiasm and love for wine shine through the entire experience, and he's just a fascinating, fun guy to spend an evening with. My husband and I loved this experience and recommend it highly.

We participated in A Brief History of South African Wines. It was a delightful experience with Manfred. They gave us a unique perspective about wines and discussed the different win areas with an expertise we wouldn't have had without this experience. We enjoyed it thoroughly.
