OUR PAIRING EXPERIENCES
VINYL & VINO
Decked to Impress
A retro revival pairing experience
Wine. Dine. Live DJ. - A Woven Bark Original
What you’ll experience: You’ll be swaying in the static of this mixtape mashup. Our first pairing moves the needle to a silver screen collection of scratchy vintage beats: a 1999 classic cult flick, carefully paired with the swoons of John Cusack and the zesty vines of Latour. Crisp on the ear and romantic on the finish, Vinyl & Vino will entertain the senses ‘til the very last song. Experience this sophisticated funk-fare in one of Jozi’s oldest independent cinemas, tangled with a live DJ and three premium cellar wines - a first, for South Africa.
COATS & NOTES
The Classic Ensemble
Jo'burg's ultimate high-art pairing experience
Wine. Dine. Sax. - A Woven Bark Original
What you’ll experience: Our second notable stop along Songs By The Glass is an intimate evening of artistic appreciation: an indulgent pairing, in the company of Tulbagh’s award-winning MCC Montpellier winemakers. Coats & Notes finds you sipping in a Sandton Farmhouse, in upper-crust suburbia; shaped by the notes of Reds, Whites and MCC classics, and elegantly paired with the sophisticated sounds of a live saxophonist. This first tasting in the series is a socially-satiating feast of grapes, and a fortunate affair for the classical fans.
MALBEC & THE MOB
Wine Flash Extavaganza
The one and only malbec flashmob pairing in SA
Wine. Dine. Mob. - A Woven Bark Original
What you’ll experience: Everything about this soirée is elegantly fearless, and unexpected. You’ll be invited to a mystery location, in one of Johannesburg’s elite neighbourhoods, where your third wine collection in our Songs by the Glass Series awaits. Together with a (secret) flashmob in the wings, each malbec moment will be paired with a showstopping performance. This gathering is a firm favourite in the series, ranking your pairing experience up a notch – about 10 notches – with its fireball extravangza-esque palate.
HERITAGE & HARMONIES
Walking Wine Tour
The architectural pairing experience
Wine. Dine. Wander. - A Woven Bark Original
What you’ll experience: Our fourth gathering of grapes brings us together inside a historical home. Heritage & Harmonies is our meandering wine tour of the classic Sandton Farmhouse, in Johannesburg. Paired with antique and historical flare, shingled rooftops, grandfather clocks, tricky truffles and the harmonious string of South Africa’s most coveted violinist, this private pairing experience will ignite your sense of past and present – with a few haunting stories by candlelight too.
HIDE 'N SPEAK
The Poet's Palate
Treasure adventure and poetry pairing experience
Wine. Hunt. Rhyme. - A Woven Bark Original
What you’ll experience: We close the nose with this finalé adventure, set to speak to the heart, mind, palate and soul. In what promises to be an up-close and personal long table event, Hide ‘n Speak crowns our Songs by the Glass series with a wine-and-find treasure hunt. You’ll get the chance to seek out some of the world’s finest wines from exclusive barrels, paired with the acapella rhythms of spoken poetry. A celebration of wine, rhyme and every reason to feel good, Hide ‘n Speak holds its own as the season’s anticipated adventure closer.
