Swartland – South Africa
The final (formal) tasting of the term will be led by someone you may not have heard of before, unless of course you are familiar with the Blind Wine Tasting Varsity. Cassidy Dart MW has been in charge of organizing this Cambridge vs Oxford grudge match for some time now as part of his role as Director of Wine for Pol Roger Champagne. Cassidy will be taking us through the wines of Swartland – an up-and-coming region from South Africa on which he has recently submitted a research paper as part of becoming a Master of Wine. Expect deep insights into both wine growing and wine tasting technique!
