Winemaker Tasting: Francois Haasbroek of Blackwater Wines

Welcome back to Wine Tasting season!  After a bit of a break, we are excited to come back strong by welcoming Francois Haasbroek, owner and winemaker of Blackwater Wines.

"Blackwater Wines focuses on sourcing fruit from the best possible vineyards across the Western Cape in South Africa by building long lasting relationships with the growers, and making wines that truly showcase their places of origin. With minimal intervention ethos in the cellar, it all comes down to the grapes, no wine making tricks – just sticking to the basics and attention to details. Francois enjoys wines built on natural acidity and grape tannin, not plastered under layers of oak with countless additions and manipulations forced upon it."

Not only will we taste his 2023 (!) rosé but also Palomino, Chenin Blanc, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Cinsaut and more.

We are very excited to have Francois join us, and tell us about his background in winemaking, what regions of the world inspire the wine he makes, and also the stories behind the names of the wines!

You'll be treated to tasting seven of Francois' wines and a small snack of cheese, prosciutto & Marcona almonds.

Please reserve your seat in advance as these events tend to sell out.
