About

THE UNCORKED FRATERNITY

The PRETORIA COUNTRY CLUB WINE FRATERNITY was founded by 11 wine lovers during the late harvesting period of 2014.  The Uncorked Fraternity (as the Fraternity is popularly referred to) was successfully inaugurated into the Pretoria Country Club (as a division) at the March 2015 Main Committee meeting.

The activities forming the pillars on which the Fraternity is to be built shall comprise of:

Strategic partnerships with selected and prominent wine makers are of the utmost importance to the Fraternity as a means of achieving our objectives.

It is the Fraternity’s aim to be exclusive and different while creating a pleasurable forum for enhancing a wine culture and passion for good wines amongst its members.

We therefore strive to implement  the following ideas:

 

Wine Tastings

A different format for wine tastings, e.g. vertical tastings, regional tastings, and cultivar tastings.

At least one international tasting per annum.

The CWG (Cape Winemakers Guild) tasting will be one of the highlights for our members each year – the Fraternity will be instrumental in keeping this tasting as part of the PCC calendar.

 

Wine buying

A “Box of the month” will be available to PCC members – in line with our objective of exclusivity.

By virtue of our relationship with the wine makers, we have special wine buying opportunities; From Single barrel buying and bottling with our own labels to exclusive top of the range vintage wines

 

Gourmet Dinner

Gourmet Dinners have been part of the Pretoria Country Club for a long time. It forms part of the process of relationship building with the wine makers and enhances the culture of enjoyment of wine in the Club.

 

Wine Tours

The Cape Wine Makers Guild auction is a great tour with exciting meetings and tastings.

Another trip not to be missed is the Nederburg Wine Auction every year.

 

Wine makers

The Fraternity will strive to make PCC the go to place in Pretoria for wine makers.

We will invite wine makers to make use of the Fraternity’s facilities.

We would endeavor to make it their home away from home.

 

The Uncorked Room

The Fraternity is planning its own room at PCC with storing facilities for wine, a bar and a braai facility.

Please come and join our fraternity for some “quaffing” and sniffing (but no spitting).

Please contact Nicolene Hall nicolene@ptacc.co.za for membership forms.
