Earlier this month we celebrated our second and very successful Grape Escape Unusual Wine Festival at The Vineyard Hotel which proved once again that we have the right formula for successful wine events! We would like to thank all of you who attended and also the participating wine farms for showing their finest wines on the evening.
Our thanks to Matthew and Heather from Withers and Son Photography who took super pics as well as a video of the evening. See links of the festival below:
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious Spring recipe of Chicken Breasts with Bacon and Olive Oil Tapenade. 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.
