April 2019

The Easter weekend in April is soon upon us and around this time we see the start of 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 2019 vintage wines on our shelves shortly.

Our popular Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Celebration, now in its eighth year, will be held next month at The Vineyard Hotel, Newlands on the evening of the 31st May. Details to follow in our next newsletter.

In our What’s Up! for April you can read about the Pinotage and Biltong Festival, The Vineyard Hotel Pinot Noir Festival and delightful get away cottage’s in Korinberg as well as our April Flavour Focus.

For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious Old Cape Chicken Pie. 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.
