Now that schools have broken up and businesses are winding down for the year we will soon be on holiday! It’s the season we look forward to having that quality time with family and friends and enjoy relaxed conversation over a good bottle or two of wine!
Our fourteenth annual Wine Concepts ‘Finer things in Life Champagne Festival’ at the deluxe Vineyard Hotel took place on the 20th November. 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 thanks to the Champagne Houses and other exhibitors who showcased their products and also for giving so generously to our lucky draw.
Our prize for guests who bought Champagne on the evening was for a two night stay at the luxurious Bushmanskloof Wilderness Reserve and Wellness Spa in the Cederberg. The lucky winner was Xondra and Ian Barton and we wish them a wonderful time away. Brent Lyall and Natascha Bracale were voted the best dressed couple on the evening and they will be driven in a classic Rolls Royce to have lunch at the exquisite Morgenhof Wine Estate courtesy of the House of Gosset
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his Aunt Muriel’s Christmas Pudding. 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 website www.wineconcepts.co.za for details on our daily tastings on upcoming events at both our Newlands and Kloof Street stores.
We have stocked up our stores with delicious wines, bubblies and gifts for the festive season and so we look forward to seeing you soon.
