|As 2017 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 several of the MCC bubbly producers has already started in earnest. It is sad, however, that as we had mentioned in last January’s newsletter we yet again in this newsletter report on the devastating fires that have been raging for the past weeks in the Western Cape, destroying several thousands of hectares of vines and in some cases complete farms with their homesteads and cellars ruined as well. Our thoughts are with all who have been affected and the brave firefighting teams.
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious starter Deconstructed Sushi with Avocado & Salmon Trout. We have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with excellent daily tastings from well-known and newer estates. Please visit our website www.wineconcepts.co.za for details on our tastings and upcoming events at both our Newlands and Kloof Street stores.
We wish you all a wonderful and safe year ahead.
