Island Prime's Prime Cru Wine Club is proud to present a symposium and tasting focusing on the wines from South Africa.  We will have two very special guests leading the discussion and tasting.  Flying in from South Africa is Sebastian Beaumont, winemaker for Beaumont Vineyards.  His wines are from the Bot River and have gained world acclaim for their similarities to the wines of the Loire Valley. Also joining in the discussion is Chris Lavin from Broadbent Imports.  Broadbent leads the charge in finding the most unique wines from South Africa and distributes them worldwide.  Chris is also a candidate for Master Sommelier.  The discussion will be led by Cohn Restaurant Group's sommelier, Maurice DiMarino.

Guests will learn about South Africa's climate, geology and vinification styles in a classroom setting. We will taste 10 different wines which showcase South Africa's great diversity.  Hors d'oeuvres will be served and all wines will be available for purchase at below retail prices.
