Zelma Long and Rebecca Mahmoud Present South African Classics: $22

Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant
Wednesday, September 9th, 4:30-7:30 pm


Join us Wednesday, September 9th, from 4:30-7:30pm, when we welcome Zelma Long, Winemaker for Vilafonte, and Rebecca Mahmoud of Warwick Estate, to our Wine Bar. These two South African wineries are considered to be in the top echelon of wines coming out of this exciting wine producing country. Come discover what all the buzz is about as these two charming women present the wines of Vilamonte and Warwick Estate.
Vilafont√© is the first American and South African joint winemaking venture. They make two wines, the M, based on Merlot, and the C, based on Cabernet Sauvignon. Zelma Long is Head Winemaker for the Vilafont√© project. Zelma is one of America’s best known winemakers with an enviable international reputation, and one of the first women to study enology and viticulture at U.C. Davis.
Rebecca Mahmoud represents the esteemed Broadbent Wine Portfolio, which includes the Warwick Estate Wines. Warwick Estate is owned by the Radcliffe family who first planted grapes there in the the 1960's. The name comes from a prior owner of the farm, Colonel Alexander Gordon, who purchased it after the Anglo Boer war. Gordon was an officer in the Warwickshire regiment.
We are sure you will love meeting these delightful women of the wine business while tasting through their wines from South Africa. Please join us and help welcome Zelma Long and Rebecca Mahmoud to Ferry Plaza Wine Merchant.
