Tap Takeover at Vagabond Wines

South Africa is taking over at Vagabond Wines on the weekend of 3rd July. Vagabond went to South Africa, plundered the wine reserves and filled out their five venues with the most happening, contemporary selection of SA wine around. Precisely, FORTY EIGHT wines, many making their UK debut this year (and over thirty of which they've never had in stock before) will be included in the Tap Takeover.

Wait. There's more. Thanks to a bursary they won by taking part in a competition we ran, they will be subsidising their premium picks in particular to bring those within reach of more people.

Within the themes each Vagabond store will be hosting a weekly two hour guided tasting session for £25/ head. Click on the link below to find out more information about the tastings and find your nearest Vagabond shop.

Don't you just love coincidences? Well, how's this for one. During my last trip to South Africa in February, I took a break from vintage to head over to the Swartland, for a tasting of old wines from Piedmont – mostly Barolos and Barbarescos from the 1960s. This was on Friday night, and it was amazing. I stayed over with my friends Ryan Mostert and Samantha Suddons, who make wine under the Silwervis, Smiley and Terracura labels. The next day they took me for a drive to see some of the vineyards that they work with. We headed out along the backroads of the Swartland, travelling from one farm to another, on a gorgeously bright, sunny Saturday morning, riding in Samantha's Range Rover. Now a Range Rover is a four-wheel drive car for fancy people, and this one was a bit pimped up with low profile tyres on after-market alloy wheels. You can guess what happened next.

I fell in love with South Africa and the wines a few years ago. The recent MasterChef UK final took me right back to a holiday I had there. They went to the same Game Reserve that we stayed at and we also went to Reuben Riffel's restaurant in Franschhoek the night before my friends wedding - it was great to see Reuben as a guest judge too! Watching that episode seemed like the perfect excuse to open this beautiful bottle of Semillon from Boekenhoutskloof. What a delicious wine!
