Our eighteenth annual Wine Concepts “Finer things in Life Champagne Festival” at the deluxe Vineyard Hotel took place on the 9th November. Cuvees from 13 Champagne Houses were offered for tasting to our guests along with fine food, music and wonderful prizes. We thank all who attended and hope you enjoyed the afternoon as much as we did! Our thanks to Matthew and Heather from Withers and Son Photography who took super pics as well as a video of the afternoon and to the Fords who featured us in their weekly magazine Menu. See links below:
We also extend a huge thanks to the Champagne Houses who attended and to our co-sponsors, The Vineyard Hotel and Legacy Lifestyle and to all our other exhibitors who showcased their products and for giving so generously to our lucky draw on the day.
Our lucky draw prize for guests who bought Champagne on the day was won by Larissa Naidoo who has won a two night stay for two at The Commodore Hotel in the Waterfront. The prize for the best dressed couple on the evening went to Karin Turner who won a voucher from Wiggle Car Hire valued at R5,300.00 for a one day rental of an awesome Ford Mustang!
For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious Aunt Marge’s Last Minute Christmas Pudding. We have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with excellent daily tastings from well-known and newer estates.
