We trust that you are enjoying the Easter break as we start to see the long warm days of summer slowly coming to an end and autumn easing in. The vineyards are now taking a break after the earlier than usual harvest this year, which means, we can expect to see a trickle of 2017 vintage wines shortly on our shelves.
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his Lamb, Roast stuffed Shoulder of Lamb with North African Flavours. 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 Happy Easter!
