Kanonkop Dinner, Thursday 12th May at Quality Chop House, Farringdon

South African wine royalty: a dinner with Johann Krige of Kanonkop

The first producer in South Africa to receive a 100-point score from an international critic, with Tim Atkin MW awarding the 2015 Paul Sauer a perfect rating, focus on, and demand for, Kanonkop’s wines has reached fever pitch in recent years.

So we’re thrilled to announce a dinner with the estate’s owner, Johann Krige, at Quality Chop House, on Thursday 12th May.

At an intimate dinner of just 14 people, we will be joined by Johann and Deirdre Taylor, the estate’s Sales & Marketing Manager. Johann is a grandson of Paul Sauer himself, and alongside his brother, Paul, he’s managed the estate for over thirty years. He’s also served on various boards throughout the Cape, including acting as chairman of Wines of South Africa for four years. So there are few people better placed to comment on winemaking in the Cape than Johann.

Matched with chef Shaun Searley’s brilliant cooking, we’ll enjoy the iconic wines of the estate, with their Pinotage, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Paul Sauer all featuring, and older vintages poured of all three.

With just 11 tickets available, tickets are sure to be in high demand. This is a brilliant chance to try the wines of one of the Cape’s most legendary estates, in the company of South African wine royalty. Don’t miss it.

Places are limited to 11 guests
