Allison came up with idea of “Kumkani with Friends: Arrive – Discover – Explore” in February this year. Allison says, “The main reason at the time, to introduce my brand to friends, and friends of friends. With my primary focus for the brand being establishing the brand’s footprint in South Africa as best possible, and thought: “Why not start at home?!” The first tasting experience was themed Arrive – Discover – Explore, so that friends could:
· Arrive at the farm to meet Kumkani, King of South African Wines
· Discover what goes into the making of wines, focusing on the creation of Kumkani Wines
· Explore the treasures of Kumkani wines (barrel and tank) and the Kumkani jewels (bottled)
This time around the guests didn’t visit the Welmoed Winery cellars but had the opportunity to blend their own wines. This is quite an intricate process and your blends should be just right to secure that perfect wine. Guests were guided by Allison but had the opportunity to rate one another. The winner of the day was Daniel Barry, who walked away with a handsome Kumkani memorabilia. The day was also filled with making new friends and simply enjoying each others’ company over lunch at The Duck Pond.
Enjoy the images of the day!
