Alto’s new concept parties hit the mark

The Cape Town leg of the Alto Red & Black Lounge Party, in partnership with City Press and Heart FM, held at the Alto Wine Estate on Thursday 29th September was an evening of style, glamour and fine cuisine as some of the country’s top Sommeliers and media industry movers and shakers arrived dressed to theme for a night of Alto’s fine wines paired with great cuisine.


Included on the guest list were some of the Western Cape’s top Sommeliers, including Pearl Oliver, from Balthazar, Dominic Bowers, resident Sommelier at the Southern Sun’s Table Bay Hotel and Greg Mutambe, Resident Sommelier at the award-winning 12 Apostles Hotel.


Says Gregory Mutambe, Cape Sommelier at the 12 Apostles Hotel: “I was so impressed with the intimate and glamorous setting created in the Alto Wine Cellar; the evening was really special. I felt really privileged to be included. Alto Estate’s wines really are a step apart; one can understand why they’re so iconic; especially the Alto Port”.

On arrival, guests were served Alto Rouge 2008 while the sun set over the vineyards and Safika played smooth Jazz. Guests were seated in the Alto Wine Cellar while Heart FM’s Irma G played a welcome set of House Classics. CEO of the Cape Wine Academy, Marilyn Cooper, welcomed dinners as the Plated Starters of Oak smoked duck breast, wilted Asian greens drizzled with hot & sour sesame dressing and garnished with bean sprouts was served with the Alto Cabernet Sauvignon 2008.
