Join the Young Professionals International Network for a taste of South Africa!
YPIN will be hosting a unique evening celebrating the wines of South Africa, which have recently taken the international wine market by storm!
South Africa is considered one of the most up-and-coming regions in the global wine market. Join other young professionals to learn more about the distinctive (and affordable) wines this vast geography has to offer while engaging in critical discussion about the complicated geopolitical story of wine production in this region. Our evening will be set in the cool ambiance of Davidson Galleries, one of Seattle’s finest galleries.
You will have an opportunity to taste a variety of delicious, distinctive wines while sommelier Cheri Walters guides us through the grapes, wine types and varietals, and unique geography of the region that results in such fabulous wine.
While tasting, enjoy light appetizers, engage in great conversation, and browse the eclectic art of Davidson Galleries, which features a mix of painting, sculpture and multimedia, contemporary, and antique art.
This will be a night of exploring new flavors, new places, and new people!
Cost includes wine tastings (at least 5) and light appetizers, presentation and discussion of wines by sommelier, and open networking.
21 and over only, please.
