If you have not heard about Come Wine With Us or have attended one of their events you are missing out!!
Come Wine With Us, is the initiative of a few geniuses (yes, I call them geniuses) since this is what we ladies have been waiting for!
They source the prefect location, perfect wines and menu, all put together in one great evening for you to enjoy.
We were very fortunate to be invited to the Sold Out Event in June that took place at the lovely Southern Sun The Cullinan in Cape Town.
We were in for a treat with Nederburg Wine Estate that was the featured Wine at this particular event.
We were joined by talented winemaker Natasha Williams, from Nederburg, she informed us about the background of Nederburg Wine Estate and how they have become a household name in the South African wine market. She also was very excited about the 2014 Riestling, and I must say…after the first taste, I understood why.
As a wine lover myself, but by no means a connoisseur it was very informative to listen to the Regional Sommelier of Tsogo Sun, Georgio Meletiou explain how to do a proper wine tasting as well as why certain wines goes best with certain foods. (Something we all want to know, especially if you love wine). Georgio did such a great job at explaining the “reasons” behind why and how you should taste wine as well as the differentiate between a good and a bad wine. He was captivating and funny all in one.
The 3-course meal that was prepared for us by the Southern Sun The Cullinan Executive Chef, Lindsay Venn, was of the highest standard and complimented the different wines from Nederburg perfectly.
As we chatted the night away over a glass of wine, eating great food and enjoying good company, I kept wondering to myself why have I not attended one of these events before!
This event was perfect for a girl’s night out, a gathering with friends or even date night with hubby!
As a afterthought: As someone that attends events on a regular basis, I must say that I was blown away with the enthusiasm, the professionalism and the seamless way the night was executed.The food and wine was just perfect and the vibe was festive.
All in All a Great Night Out.
