Special Guest: Eben Sadie, Proprietor & Winemaker
Eben Sadie has been described as an enfant terrible and is considered to be one of South Africa’s first certified celebrity winemakers as well as “one of the greatest and most original winemakers in the southern hemisphere.”
Following a period as a surfer, Eben traveled and worked the world’s wine regions (including Germany, Austria, Oregon, California, France & Spain). Eben takes incredible care in the vineyards and everything is done by gravity and hand. Concrete and wooden open fermenters are used. The wines are matured in large, old foudres and or concrete casks with minimal intervention. The goal is to allow the wines show their truest character and sense of place. As Eben says ‘It’s a very pure way of producing the wine’.
Located in the Swartland Mountain Areas of South Africa, Sadie Family produces around 3,500 cases of wine annually. With minimal production, their wines are highly sought after and represent some of the most compelling and diverse bottlings from South Africa. Join Pappas Bros. Houston for what is sure to be an unforgettable evening as we welcome Eben Sadie, proprietor & winemaker of Sadie Family, for his first wine dinner in Texas!
