Out of Africa
Spring Day Garden Party
Méthode Cap Classique
Wine Tasting & Lunch
UPDATE: LAST MINUTE BOOKINGS STILL AVAILABLE!! EMAIL PTA.TREASURER@MENSA.ORG.ZA NOW!!
You are cordially invited to join Mensa Pretoria for an “Out of Africa” Garden Party and tasting of South Africa’s very best Méthode Cap Classique Wines (better known as “Champagne” to anyone who lives OUTSIDE of France…)
Enjoy a welcoming glass of Bubbly on arrival and Morning Tea in the garden of the historic Sammy Marks House Museum, before a guided tasting of a number of award-winning sparkling wines and the still-wine cultivars that they are made from… the best Bubblies to come “Out of Africa”.
Those with creative flair will want to come dressed for the occasion, in keeping with the theme (“Out of Africa” or “Spring Day”, you decide). Prizes will be awarded (Bubbly, of course) for the Best Dressed and the Most Interestingly Dressed people.
The tasting will continue into the mid-afternoon after a break for a light lunch and awarding of prizes.
