Winemaker's Dinner With David Van Velden Of Overgaauw says
Piccolo is excited to announce that we will be hosting a wine dinner with David van Velden of South Africa’s famed Overgaauw Estate on Monday, September 26th at 7pm! Tickets available at www.tempotickets.com/piccolo.

More than a century old, this historic fourth-generation-owned Stellenbosch wine estate is one of the ‘first families of Cape wine’, and boasts a laudable reputation as ‘leader of the pack’ (John Platter’s South African Wine Guide 2001). .

David virtually grew up in the wine cellars of Overgaauw, following his father around from the age of five. David eventually pried himself out of the cellar and obtained a business degree from the University of Stellenbosch. In 2003, David returned to Overgaauw as the assistant winemaker. After four years, he took over the winemaking at Overgauuw. The fourth-generation of Van Veldens to make wine at Overgauuw, his philosophy in wine making starts with his meticulous vineyard management; applying practices to maintain the natural balance in the soil and assisting the vines to produce the best fruit the site and vintage has to offer. In the cellar the focus is on retaining as much of the varietal’s unique ‘Overgaauw’ character, with minimal cellar manipulation and the judicious use of wood.

Please join us on Monday, September 26th at 7pm to meet David and to taste through a selection of his wines while enjoying a special 5-course meal created by Chef Flicker and the Piccolo team. Tickets are limited. Purchase your tickets at www.tempotickets.com/piccolo today!
