This tasting program introduces young and old wine estates and wine making styles across the spectrum from light crisp wines to complex and robust red blends. We learn about South African wines as well as how to pair wine with food. Your guide Jim, is South African, he speaks English and Swedish and is a certified tourist guide for all 9 provinces for history, culture and nature as well.

Jim is a garagiste wine maker (Hunneyball Wines in Platters wine guide), is a Cape Wine Academy graduate and member of the South African Sommeliers Association. No matter your experience, he is eager in sharing his knowledge of all aspects of wine enjoyment and production. He is also a Western Cape bird enthusiast and keen photographer. When reading, it’s usually about African history and when he’s not guiding or making wine, you can look for him in remote places or underwater. You can ask him what you like 😉  Jim holds a Professional Driver’s Permit (PrDP) for which medicals and police clearances are mandatory and are renewed every 2 years. He also has the required public transport permits and insurances to transport tourists.
