As 2018 gathers momentum we are welcoming back our customers who are looking well rested after the break! The kids will be back at school soon, varsities open 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 local MCC bubblies will start in earnest soon if not already in some regions.
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious Risotto for Two. 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.
