January 2023

As 2023 gathers momentum we are welcoming back our customers who are looking well rested after the break! The kids are shortly back at school, varsities open soon and for most of us it’s the start of the daily grind but with exciting new challenges for the year ahead. The heat is on in the vineyards and the picking of the grapes for our local MCC bubblies will start in earnest soon if not already in some regions.

Eskom – Load Shedding
Please note that both our stores are fully operational during any outages that occur throughout our operating hours.

Looking for an older or sold out wine?
We opened our two stores over two decades ago and as a result have developed close relationships with many wineries and producers. We mention this in case you are perhaps looking for a wine that may no longer be available as we may be able to secure that special bottle for you.

V’know Wine Appreciation Pack – January/February 2023
The twelfth edition of our successful V’know Wine Appreciation Pack is available! An exciting selection of six delicious wines with the detailed description of each of the wines included in the pack plus a glossary of wine terms referred to.

Our V’know packs are available in both our stores or order online by clicking the banner on the right of our newsletter. Enjoy!

Wine Gems – our fortnightly e-mailer
Our fortnightly wine mailer called Wine Gems invites you every fortnight to discover a selection of wines from 2 estates available from our online store.

And of course we have an interesting line up of new wines in our stores, along with our daily tastings from well-known and newer estates. Please visit our website www.wineconcepts.co.za for details on our tastings at both our Newlands and Kloof Street stores.

For our recipe this month Michael Olivier gives us his mouth watering recipe for Green Summer Minestrone

Once again we thank you all so much for your wonderful continued and loyal support.
