Around the tasting you will find six podiums that will create a tasting trail. Each station will have 18 wines which can be tasted. To accompany each podium there is a video which can be downloaded on to your phone or device. Click on the corresponding video and our winemakers will take you on a virtual tour of each theme. You can do the trail at your own pace, taste as you watch the video or afterwards in the comfort of your own home. This means that you can follow the trail and revisit it time and time again. An MCC bar showcasing South Africa’s diverse and expanding Méthode Cap Classique scene will be the ideal start or finish to your trail.

Pick up your headphones at the reception desk and enjoy following the trail.

The wines at the tasting trail stations will be available for you to taste at any point during the day. Find videos on each theme below.
