Last night, Red Rooster Harlem hosted its first of a series of Wine Maker Meet and Greets, this time showcasing South African wine maker Mark Solms, of Solms Delta winery. This exotic wine tasting kicked off at 6:30pm at the bar where guests could taste from variety of South African Solms Delta wines, including the Cape Jazz Shiraz, Langarm blend, and Africana Shiraz. DJ Eddie Ed set the mood for the night by playing popular South African hits; everything from early 70’s jazz and pop to modern day house and hip hop. Red Rooster’s kitchen also fired up some South African bites for guests, including Bunny Chow, Fried Yard Bird Nuggets with Atjar, and Pop Cake Fries with spicy mayo.
