June 2023

Later last month we celebrated our very successful Grape Escape Unusual Wine Festival at The Steenberg Golf Club 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 during the afternoon.

Our thanks to Tertius Fogwill who took super pics on the day and to John and Lynne Ford from MENU who wrote an article as well as photo’s of the afternoon in their weekly column. Please see links below:

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 – May/June 2023
The fourteenth 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 delicious Tomato and Bacon Baked Macaroni and Cheese.

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