On Tuesday, May 9th from 6:30pm – 8:30pm Wines of South Africa (www.wosa.us) will be hosting a walk around wine tasting at City Winery Atlanta. A dazzling array of wineries representing the quality and diversity of South Africa’s burgeoning wine scene will be presented by a principal representative from the winery and hosted by Jim Clarke, U.S. Marketing Manager for Wines of South Africa.
Jim Clarke is the U.S. Marketing Manager for Wines of South Africa (WOSA), a levy-funded marketing body that promotes exports of South African wines. Prior to joining WOSA in 2013 Jim was the wine director at Armani Ristorante and Megu, both in New York City. He is also a writer, regularly contributing to a number of trade and consumer publications including Bloomberg, World of Fine Wine, Beverage Media, and Wine Review Online.
Each winery representative will put the wines in context, discussing terroir, traditions, and current trends through tastings of their wine(s).
Executive Chef Don Cherry will present a curated selection of hors d’oeuvre designed as a paired element for the wines. Cheese, charcuterie and baguette will be on display, as well.
To be determined shortly, stay tuned…..
