What’s it about?

Beyond the Vine offers virtual and fully interactive, tastings, pairings and cooking classes. Wine tastings, gin, rum and artisan beer, cooking classes and pairings for Team building, product launches, social gatherings and more.

We are a Cape Town based company from South Africa with an exceptional talent for entertaining your guests, clients, families and friends globally from the comfort and safety of their social bubbles in a fun & informative way.

The virtual tasting master class explores various tastings and takes an in depth look at what, and why. We explore the artisan worlds of wine, craft beer and craft gin in the safety and comfort of your home or office with clients, friends or even as a team building event. Remember this is all done virtually via Zoom and produced right here in our own “Studio” in Cape Town

We are able to incorporate branding for a team building or company promotion and launch ensuring that your brand is maximized throughout the virtual session. A virtual session could even explore product promotions as well as motivational sessions and all of this presented by Robbie Knoetze, your virtual guide.

Robbie has done over 3400 wine, beer & gin tours collectively, trained sommeliers from around the globe and spends much of his time developing the skills of rural and underprivileged communities by establishing self sustained tour guides in those areas. A chef & sommelier by trade, with a passion for comedy and entertainment, your virtual experience will be amazing.

It is a fully interactive session filled with sights sounds and flavours that you will enjoy, taste and smell virtually. Be prepared to be entertained with Robbie’s humour and before you know it you have learnt the ins and outs of wine, craft beer and craft gin while enjoying your “virtual box” that is delivered to your clients or guests via courier.

How it works…

It really is very simple and all you would need is a laptop computer, pad, pc or even simply an android cell phone with a decent screen and sound to ensure a great interactive experience. Your virtual tasting box will arrive via courier and will only be opened on the day of the Masterclass simultaneously and live. We take you through the box and its treats and depending on the package selected it will be between 1-3 hours.  If it is a cooking masterclass and pairing it could be done in 2 sessions because of the preparation time and of course depending on the number of participants. We will also interact individually to set up the best video and sound angle prior to the session. This will also allow us the opportunity to get to know the participants before the session so that we can ensure maximum participation by all.

Build your own box

With the many options available we have made it easy to create your own tasting box.

Wine
Spoiled for choice with a massive selection of wines in the Cape, we are always after the unusual so wine selection is varied and unique, and of course dependant on budget. We also have Vegan & Halaal approved non-alcoholic available.
Wine blending
After a crash course in wine making, we take you through the process of blending and you get to blend, cork, label and bottle your very own wine. We design a branded or personalised label for you and supply the entire blending kit. This is a lot of fun and be assured that you will consume a good amount of wine in the process.
Craft beer
The characters and flavours of each craft brewery are unique and very similar to that of Gin and wine in the sense that each beer is interpreted differently by your individual palate. We source local craft beers produced in the cape and once again tend to look for the unusual rather than the popular.
Artisan Gin & Gin flavouring
This is an activity for a more distinguished palate and a definite must for any gin lover. With an amazing selection of Artisanal gin throughout the Cape we once again source the unusual although we use a common brand for the gin flavouring. We supply all the dried flavouring ingredients to inspire your creative flair.
