Woodsmoke had its second African evening at Venue Restaurant on June 22. It turned out to be an extremely successful event on all accounts. Venue has a great room that we used for the evening and it went very well with the Woodsmoke brand since the room had dim lighting, dark interiors, and a social ambiance to it.
For the first time we did a wine tasting of a few South African wines that come from boutique vineyards where they only make a few hundred cases a year. We served Diemersfontein Pinotage that was sponsored to us by Cape Ardor and did tastings with Raka Shiraz, La Petite Ferme Cabernet Sauvignon, and a Ridgeback Merlot that were all superb . The Diemersfontein went down extremely well and I was told a number of times that it had a very smokey nose and had great chocolate / coffee notes to it. There were a few women who were constantly speaking about the wine and definitely enjoyed having a few glasses.
The most important thing to Woodsmoke is to showcase the artists who make our products. I feel as if we let you know this and it resonated with everyone that came to the evening. The story behind the product is the second most important thing to us and that is why you can find detailed information about all our products on our website.
Thank you very much for supporting Woodsmoke and coming out to the Venue. Sign up for our newsletter to find out more information about the next Woodsmoke Evening.
I leave you with a few pics from the evening.
