Blanchards West Roxbury, Vintage Room
The vineyards that adorn the foothills of the Western Cape region of South Africa are arguably the most dramatically beautiful on the planet. Sheer cliffs of sandstone rise up inland of these coastal vineyards which enjoy a superb Mediterranean climate. South African wine has a history dating back to 1659 with its roots traced to the explorations of the Dutch East India Company which established a supply station in what is now modern day Cape Town. At one time Constantia, a vineyard near Cape Town produced what was considered one of the greatest sweet wines in the world - Napoleon requested a glass on his death-bed. Nowadays, it is the dry reds and whites of South Africa that are getting the lionís share of attention. Join us and learn why the wines from this unique region deserve the attention of all oenophiles
