Meanwhile Adi cooked for The Great South African Cookbook which launches TODAY – since today is Madiba Day and the proceeds of this great book goes towards The Nelson Mandela Foundation.
Adi and Lars attended Imbibe Live in London with Caperitif, Jasper tasted his way through Spain and Portugal, Helena launched a Swartland wine onto a Stellenbosch wine list and we’ve had some rain, glorious rain.
There are also plans for the 2016 edition of Convivium in the pipeline, Sunday lunches coming up and a bit of a ‘if we can’t have a Swartland Revolution we’ll just throw our own early November party’ event, coming soon.
Our friends at Devil’s Peak Brewing Company have invited us to pair some wine with food prepared by The Taproom’s in-house chef David Walker at their monthly Artisan Night.
Welcome drinks, canapes and a fantastic three course menu specially created with the flavour of each wine in mind (trust us, we tasted all the options!). Add in some chirps from Adi and you have yourself a good night out.
