As date night and Women’s Day were on the same day this year, I decided to make a three course meal for Tanya. The three meals consisted of sticky chicken wings, kudu sosaties and bread pudding.
The Breede River Valley region is known for its breathtaking scenery, hospitable people and of course wonderful wines. We were there in October for the Wine on the River festival (which I wrote about here) and decided to take a few days off to do a wine road trip.
Every year mid October we eagerly pack the Land Rover and set off for the Wine on the River festival in Robertson. Held on the banks of the Breederiver you can taste a variety of wines from the Robertson, Ashton, Bonnievale and McGregor areas. We’ve always loved this festival – this year it was a bit of a hit and miss.
Last weekend it was time for our annual Méthode Cap Classique (MCC) wine shootout. 14 MCC wines, 9 very enthusiastic judges.
