An Evening with Nick Pentz in Calgary
Hotel Fairmont Palliser - Marquis Room
133 9 Ave SW
Third and fourth generation dairymen, Nick and Peter Pentz run Groote Post, their vineyard in the Darling Hills on the Cape’s West Coast, approximately an hour’s drive north of Cape Town. It is a historic estate with a traditional Dutch gabled homestead dating back to 1808, and was originally a guarding post against cattle rustlers. The Pentz family originally owned a dairy business producing milk and delivering it direct-to-door in Cape Town. The family no longer have a dairy herd, but the 3000-hectare estate raises sheep and cattle, grows cereal crops and includes a restaurant, Hilda’s Kitchen, which serves their delicious homegrown produce. 117 hectares of vineyards are planted on cooler slopes on clay soils benefitting from the ocean breezes, with wines made by Lukas Wentzel.
Opimian is proud to count Groote Post among its producers since 2016 and to offer this exclusive event to its members!
Join us at the Four Star Fairmont Palliser for a tutuored tasting of four of Nick's wines. The event will include flatbread, cheese and fruit to enjoy with the wines. Most importantly, you will have a chance to meet Nick and 'talk wine' throughout the evening.
