jan_2016

As 2016 gathers momentum we are welcoming back our customers who are looking well rested after the break! The kids are back at school, varsities open soon and for most of us it’s the start of the daily grind but with exciting new challenges for the year ahead. The heat is on in the vineyards and the picking of the grapes for our MCC bubblies has started in earnest (Simonsig reporting their earliest harvest ever!). Sadly, however, recent fires in the Overberg and Simonsberg has destroyed 1000’s of hectares of vegetation including vineyards on several wine farms in the Elgin and Simonsberg areas. Our thoughts are with all who have been affected and the brave firefighting teams.

For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his Braaied Boerewors Burgers. 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 wish you all a wonderful and safe year ahead.
