A Winter Wine Evening .. …

A Winter Wine Evening .. …

…. where we enjoyed a delicious meal paired with wines, was organised by Elaine’s workplace ..

.. and was held at the FNB Conference Centre …


… where there were rows of coloured cushions against decorated walls outside the dining area …

Loved this delicately twirled chandelier which was one of a few hanging from the ceiling in the dining room ….


.. where the wines for the evening were supplied by the Bartinney Wine Estate, which is situated on the steep slopes of the Helshoogte Pass overlooking the picturesque Banghoek Valley in Stellenbosch.

Three wines .. a Savignon Blanc was served with a fruit/cheese starter, a Chardonney was paired with a delicious chicken dish …..


… and an ‘easy on the palate’ and ‘drink now, don’t keep’ ‘Noble Savage’ Cabernet Savignon, very reasonably priced … was paired with a delicious steak and baby onion bredie topped with a dumpling (inside the little potjie pot) … (for overseas bloggy friends, this is miniature version of the traditional potjie pot which was traditionally used/and still is used for cooking maize meal as well as stew type, yummy tasty meals and sits on an open fire or hot coals)

.. and for ‘pud’ .. mini cheese cakes in ramekin dishes served with chocolate truffles …. yumm!


Thank you, Sweetie Pie, for organising tickets for us .. it was a most enjoyable evening ..

Elaine and Bryan … and hubby and me …
