More about the RECM Best Value Tastings:
RECM follows “a disciplined, value-based philosophy that focuses on growing clients’ wealth in real terms above inflation, while protecting their capital against the risk of permanent capital loss.” Which makes our collaboration a sensible one as value is surely the best strategy to employ when investing in wine.
The RECM Best Value tastings kicked off at the Taj Hotel on Monday 24 February 2014. The RECM Best Value tastings take place on Wednesdays at the Pendock Wine Gallery @ Taj Cape Town. Each month we consider a different category: Sauvignon Blanc, Merlot, etc.
Each week up to 48 wines are tasted blind and scored by a panel of professional judges, chaired by Dr Winnie Bowman. The score given to the wines by the judges determine the value price on the wine, and when compared with their cellar door prices, we are able to arrive at the wines that are great value for money, and the Top Six are awarded the RECM Best Value sticker.
There is no price limit for wines submitted, as great value can be found at all price points. That evening from 5-7pm, the public are able to come in and taste all the wines that were judged earlier. The aim of the RECM Best Value tastings is to provide an effective showcase to producers for their wines and a selective retail opportunity to sell them. We are also able to give the consumer an idea of what a great value wine is. It’s also a unique opportunity to sample wines in one category and be able to compare the different styles. Not to mention that it’s a great way to find your new favourite Favourite!
You can come along and taste and taste and evaluate for yourself. Tickets are only R100.00 per person, available at the door from Shelley. There are some light nibbles, and there is no limit to your number of tastings.
Shelley is the contact person at our Wine Gallery if you have any queries.
