|Despite the persistent heat our busy winemakers seem pleased about what is going
on in the vineyards. They’re abuzz with happy people noises and the clip, clip, clip of the pruning shears for the grapes picked by hand and the hum of the automated picking machines. Picking is usually done in the early hours as vineyard managers rush their grapes into cellars while still cool from the night air.Tanks of white, red and rosé are fermenting while the yeasts work their magic turning juice into wine.February also spells romance and in this issue we have some lovely ideas of where to
go and what you can buy from our three stores.For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious Barbecued Lamb Burgers, perfect for summer braaing. We have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with excellent tastings from well known and newer estates. Please visit our websitewww.wineconcepts.co.za for details on our daily tastings.We look forward to welcoming you back in one of our three stores soon!!
