Vignerons tasting – “Out of this World”

Sometimes membership fees are taken for granted belonging to a tasting group. How lucky was the few that were present the other day, when Gottfried Mocke of Cape Chamonix in Franschhoek entertained the Vignerons’ technical tasting group, to most probably one of the most exciting and memorable tasting I certainly have been to of late. So for the other guys and gals – You snooze you loose!
