South African Ambassador to Seoul Stefanus J. Schoeman and his wife Mrs. Judith Schoeman, visited the Kabinett, a boutique wine bar in Itaewon on Jan. 23 (Wednesday), 2008.

They were promoting South African wine imported by Pieroth Wines Co. in the wine tasting event. Mr. Sake van der Wal, economic counsellor of the South African Embassy in Seoul also attended the gathering with his wife.

The wine tasting was hosted by President Dan Schulte of Pieroth Wine Korea Co. and Mr. Ashley Cheeseman, co-owner of Kabenett. The gathering started at 6:30 p.m. and lasted late into the evening.

During the event Amb. Schoeman addressed the audience "There's nothing better than a fine wine shared amongst friends and family, and it helps make the social dynamics all the more interesting."

A presentation by a Pieroth wine staff then ensued educating both local and international participants on the history of wine in South Africa.

Around the end of the event Amb. Schoeman extolled the wine tasting event by saying "Pieroth wines and the Kabinett are the biggest promoters of South African wine and are
doing a fine job of it."

The Kabinett wine bar in Itaewon regularly promotes wine from across the world as well as South Africa in monthly events.

Customers can gain access to the quality wine there at much reduced prices. It offers happy hour prices and a wine club called "Seoul Wine Club."
