Dining in the Dark at Leopard's Leap Family Vineyards in support of Earth Hour 2015

With conservation as one of its brand passions, Leopard's Leap Wines this year supports the WWF’s Earth Hour initiative with a Dining in the Dark experience.

What has started as a lights-off event in Sydney, Australia in 2007, has grown to engage more than 7000 cities and towns worldwide. For the 2015 edition of Earth Hour on Saturday, 28 March, and in tune with the WWF’s aim of “encourage(ing) an interconnected global community to share the opportunities and challenges of creating a sustainable world”, Leopard’s Leap is joining the global initiative of switching off the lights between 20:30 and 21:30 while presenting a feast of food and wine.

Start the evening with an optional Blind Tasting of a special selection of wines presented by cellarmaster Eugene van Zyl and then relax into a dinner of delicious tastes and flavours. Choose from the variety of juicy and tender meats on the popular Rotisserie, enjoy the tempting diversity of side dishes and salads form the Harvest Table and conclude with an interactive dessert in the dark. The internationally-recognised range of Leopard's Leap wines as well as the exclusive Culinaria Collection will complement dinner and are available at cellar door prices.

Reservations are essential and can be made with Carmen at +27 (0)21 876 8002 or reservation@leopardsleap.co.za

Blind Tasting: 18:30 – 19:30, R50 per person (Limited availability)

About Leopard's Leap

Leopard’s Leap was conceptualised at the turn of the century by winemaker and businessman Hein Koegelenberg, with guidance from his late father in law, internationally renowned industrial leader Dr. Anton Rupert. Following its formidable success as a wine producer during the first decade, a decision was made in 2011 to broaden the horizons and, at the same time, create a home where visitors can get close to the values of the Leopard’s Leap brand and experience the Leopard’s Leap identity and principal passions – wine, food, conservation and literature.
