Monthly Winemakers Lunch

Benguela Cove Group Sommelier, Denis Garret, invites you to join the second monthly Winemakers Lunch event to be hosted at Benguela on Main, situated in Somerset West, on Wednesday, 13 January 2016.

The event takes on a relaxed atmosphere at this prestigious venue, where winemakers get the chance to present their wines to peers and Benguela Cove Group Sommelier Denis Garret for possible inclusion in the Benguela on Main winelist.

Denis Garret hails from France and is a member of Association des Sommeliers Paris Ile-de-France, the oldest sommelier association in the world. Denis is also certified as a Cognac Educator through the Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac, an interprofessional association for the preservation and promotion of Cognac. These prestigious memberships, coupled with many years of experience, makes Denis very knowledgeable on champagne, cognac and wine.

Winemakers are invited to bring a special bottle of wine along to showcase and enjoy at 12 noon with a two-course lunch charged at R280 per person. Denis will be on hand to review and facilitate the conversation around the wines.

The December Wednesday Winemakers Lunch was extremely well received and Benguela on Main welcomed 30 winemakers. For pictures from the event, visit the Benguela on Main Facebook page.

Since opening its doors in September 2015, Benguela on Main has received numerous rave reviews and is becoming the fine dining restaurant to visit in Somerset West. Showcasing the same elegant and luxurious interior as the rest of the Benguela Dining restaurants, this gem will have you coming back for more.
