Events


Meet fellow wine lovers by coming along to our Wine Club events, which gives you the opportunity to sample around 300 wines a year. Take part in the wine and cheese quiz, blind wine tasting championships, cheese and wine pairings, fine wine tastings and more. There’s the opportunity to taste a diverse range of wines from the exquisite and famous bubbly, Cristal, to iconic South African wines like Meerlust Rubicon and Kanonkop Paul Sauer (and if you haven’t heard of these SA Bordeaux style blends then maybe that’s reason in itself to come along?).

VB’s close relationships with the South African wineries and suppliers results in a wide range of event offerings; Wine Club tastings, Wine Dinners where customers can meet the winemakers and the annual South African wine festival. Keep a look out for the wine dinners that crop up every month or two (join the mailing list and you will get told about them in advance).

Themes


Bubbly time: Got expensive taste? Only like bubbly? Well, this is the evening for you. Featuring Champagnes or sparkling wines and held every month, it is hosted by guest speakers. This is your chance to really tickle your taste buds with some top quality fizz.

VB’s wine & cheese quiz: We like to think of our monthly quiz night as a quiz night with a difference. Where else will you get a glass of wine on arrival, followed by general knowledge, wine and cheese questions, with blind cheese and wine tastings into the bargain?! The winning team gets a bottle of fizz, the runners up a tasty cheeseboard. So grab a team and let battle commence! (Teams of up to six people)

Fine wine: We’ll bring out the very best from the deepest recesses of our cellars; wines that we have aged and are begging to be drunk.

Something from South Africa:
we regularly feature our top wineries or grapes and varieties where South Africa has something special to offer.

Master classes, without the label and blending: Be ready to taste wines blind! No, we won’t blindfold you, but the wines will be bagged up in black bags, often with interesting results and full-on debates… or you can come and learn about blending wines – an everyday activity for the wine maker but here you get to try it yourself!

Cheese and wine: What is wine without a bit of cheese to match? And at VB we know all about cheese. Our monthly tastings feature interesting cheeses from close to home or across the globe; from mild to stinky, soft to hard and paired of course with the ideal wines.

Bespoke wine or cheese tastings: You can always design your own wine or cheese tasting experience. From large parties to smaller intimate occasions, our staff are on hand to help you create your perfect event. And it’s not only tastings, why not book a wine blending session where you can learn all about blending wines, and have a go at it yourself?! Click here to see to our private tasting packages or contact us to create a bespoke event. Please provide us with your budget, what type of tasting you are interested in and dates and number of people, and we will prepare a tasting proposal and check availability.

Tastings and dinners


Wine dinners are held throughout the year. These showcase influential wine producers many of whom we have close partnerships with, with wine makers regularly visiting us. You will get the chance to hear from the winemakers themselves while tasting their wines and experiencing a menu specifically designed to complement the wines. Keep an eye out for future events and don’t forget our annual South African wine festival – look out for the dates.
