Reyneke Estate 5 Course Food and Wine Matching Dinner at Vivat Bacchus

Reyneke was founded in 1998 when Johan Reyneke Jr. took over his family farm and began producing his own wine. With vines as old as 40 years, Reyneke is a trailblazer in the realm of biodynamic viticulture in South Africa. His aim has always been to express the uniqueness of the farm's situation in the bottle by interfering as little as possible and allowing nature to be the real maker of the wine. Johan’s wines have received universally outstanding reviews from Robert Parker, Jancis Robinson, Wine Spectator and John Platter. For more about the estate see:

Johan will lead us in a tasting of 5 of his wines and these will be accompanied by a 5 course dinner prepared by Vivat Bacchus' Executive Chef. Dietary requirements will be catered for so please let me know if you have any when you book the event.

The cost of this event is £58 (£49.50 + the 12.5% service charge of £6.20 + £2.30 paypal fees) to include all food and wine and I have reserved 10 places for the group.

For more details about this event and others at Vivat Bacchus see:



P.S. This branch of Vivat Bacchus is just a few minutes walk from Farringdon or Chancery Lane tubes.

    Per the comments of others this was a wonderful dinner made very special by Johan's presentation which was indeed moving and uplifting. I have heard the theory of biodynamics as it relates to winemaking several times before, but never explained so well and with so much passion as by Johan. The wines showed a purity of flavours, elegance and natural beauty and clearly reflected the biodynamic philosophy which Johan practises. Reyneke will be first stop on the next tour to South Africa!

    Brilliant! A wonderful evening. Everything perfect! The speaker was inspiring and the organic, bio-dynamically made wines were lovely. The food, service and atmosphere were delightful. You are just great at finding the most enjoyable things to do Christos and this talent and your calm and relaxed presence attracts a lovely crowd of people to these meet-ups. Well done.

    I must say this is the first time I have come away from a group function spiritually inspired! I thought the wine was really different and somehow spoke to the same message our amazingly charismatic speaker.

    As I told Christos, I have always thought that biodynamics was an excuse to sell indifferent wine as something special and expensive based on mumbo-jumbo but now I understand that, at least in Johan's hands, it is about connecting the wine to the land in an unadulterated way. Really that old French concept of 'terroir' rises again!!
