Blaauwklippen has been a proud producer of Zinfandel since the seventies, and the Blaauwklippen Zinfandel portfolio includes three products: A classic, sophisticated red wine, a noble late harvest and a white Zinfandel that made history in 2007 by becoming the first white style Zinfandel in South Africa.
To reinforce this unique selling point an International Zinfandel tasting has been hosted to selected media and trade for the past 5 years.
The 2012 tasting and Zinfandel inspired lunch was hosted at Winchester Mansions Hotel in Sea Point on the 2nd of March and 24 potential Zinfandel enthusiasts were treated to a tutored Zinfandel workshop by Blaauwklippen cellar master, Rolf Zeitvogel.
Blaauwklippen became the first winery in the Southern Hemisphere to join ZAP (Zinfandel Advocates and Producers) in 2007, ZAP is a non profit organisation dedicated to the promotion of Zinfandel, and their head office is located in America, more than 300 growers and producers of Zinfandel around the world are producer members of ZAP.
This informative event takes place during harvest time every year and except for selected imported ZInfadnel examples it also features the Blaauwklippen new releases and library Zinfandel selections.
