December 2013


Schools have broken up, businesses are winding down for the year and soon we will be on holiday! We look forward to having that quality time with our family and friends and enjoy relaxed conversation over a good bottle or two of wine!

Our twelfth annual Wine Concepts ‘Finer things in Life Champagne Festival’ at the deluxe Vineyard Hotel and Spa took place on Friday 22nd November. Our theme this year celebrated the frivolous dancing girls of the clubs in Paris and on the evening we had our own dancing trio who kept us entertained. Over 30 cuvees were offered for tasting to our guests along with fine food, music and wonderful prizes. We thank all who attended and hope you enjoyed the evening as much as we did! We also extend a huge thank you to the Champagne Houses and other exhibitors who showcased their products and also for giving so generously to our raffle.

Our lucky draw for guests who bought Champagne on the evening was for a weekend at the luxurious Bushmans Kloof Wilderness Reserve and Retreat in the Cederberg. The lucky winner was Carl Ingerisch and we wish him and his partner a wonderful time away.

Enjoying the festival are Shannyn, Lainey, Tarryn & Anneline

All our stores have stocked up with delicious wines, bubblies and gifts (see our list below) for the festive season so we look forward to seeing you soon.

We wish you all a wonderful festive season with happy holidays and best wishes for the New Year. 

Gifts for the Festive Season

A good bottle of wine is always a lovely gift and our stores have an excellent selection on offer. Added to this we have a range of new wine accessories, olive oils, tapenades, hand crafted chocolates, biltong, cookery and wine books (hand signed by the authors). We have Christmas hampers which can be tailor made to your requirements or select from the hampers already on display. We offer a free wrapping service for any gifts you buy from us.
