May has arrived and along with it the gradual start of winter, and of course we are hoping for the winter rains that go with it for us in the Cape!….but that means lovely wholesome stews and great reds to enjoy and savour around a warm fire.
Our second Wine Concepts annual event for 2018 will be our Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Celebration, now in its eighth year, to be held at The Vineyard Hotel, Newlands on the evening of the 8th June.
We were recently featured in the May edition of Wine Land Magazine with an article written by Tshepang Molisana called “A day in the life of a wine buyer and merchant”
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious recipe for Pork Sirloin Steaks with Apple, Prune & Cider Sauce. 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.
