Wines of South Africa (WOSA) USA (www.wosa.us/), the industry association that promotes the exports of South African wine, is excited to announce a partnership with the Chelsea Drinks Project, a joint project of Wine Lovers of NYC and Pierre Loti Wine Bars in Manhattan to launch the first-ever South African Wine Project. This partnership will offer NY wine lovers the opportunity to explore the diversity of South African wine in one location through tastings or just a quick drink at the bar.
The month-long event will take place in February, and will feature eight special South African by-the-glass pours and bottles on the menu. And there will be four special events at Pierre Loti Chelsea (258 West 15 St at 8th Ave) celebrating South African Wines:
