February 2020

February spells romance and in this issue, we have some exquisite wine offers and prizes for your loved ones! In our vineyards the persistent heat, and strong winds, over the start of the harvest season has resulted in several parts picking earlier this year, however, many wineries are reporting that what they have picked so far the quality is good! Picking continues for the later ripening varieties some of which are picked by hand and the others with automated machines. Due to the extreme temperatures picking is usually done in the early hours as vineyard managers rush their grapes into cellars while still cool from the
night air.

For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his delicious pan grilled calamari tubes on a risotto cake with chili, lemon & balsamic dressing. 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.
