Bot River Spring Weekend 5th & 6th September 2015.

We’ve all been patiently waiting for the sun to come out and play and see fit to celebrate the change of season with our annual Bot River Spring Weekend.

Bot River Spring Weekend 2015

I’ll be pouring the latest vintage of Genevieve MCC 2011 at Luddite Wines this year. A family affair sure to entertain and while away your time in Bot River. This year we’re adding an option of oysters to your tasting of Genevieve MCC, why because we love oysters and well sometimes you need to enjoy a little extra delectable something to bring out the joie de vivre!

 

Penny Verburg of Luddite Wines has been cooking up a storm; your lunch treats to be enjoyed with a glass of Luddite Shiraz or Chenin made by the great man Niels Verburg. I’ve included the menu in her words to give you a big yummy picture of what she’s been preparing.

“ I’ve been beavering away in the kitchen and have the following on offer for the weekend:
Old fashioned pork pies served with a side salad and home made piccalilli
Selection of Richard Bosman’s charcuterie, home made bread, pates and farm butter
Vegetarian mushroom pate, breads, salad and local cheeses
The pantry is bulging with stuff grown and made on the farm: jams, marmalades, pickles, olive oil and yummy lemon and granadilla curd!”

And then to top it all off we thought we’d add some more colour to the day with some great local artists showing off their wares.

Wendy Voogt will be exhibiting her paintings, John the Potter will have some pottery on sale, Jo Elkin will be selling her goods and lastly there will be a washing line full of Sue Heyns beautiful patchwork quilts

Time: Saturday / Sunday: 10:00 -15:00

See you this weekend!

Melissa , Penny & Niels!

PS: Brush up on your 101 to TASTING oysters!

Oyster tasting is similar to wine tasting. You’re trying to absorb and appreciate the nuances in flavor and texture imparted by climatic conditions. The culmination of these effects is what oyster aficionados call “meroir.”

The 6 S’s of Pro Oyster Tasting

#1 SEE: Feast with your eyes! Study the shell, shape, and color.

#2 SMELL: It should smell sea-breezy and sweet, not fishy at all.

#3 SIP: Sip the oyster liquor to get a sense of the salinity.

#4 SLURP: Shimmy the oyster meat loose, tilt the flat edge of the shell to your lips and slurp! Don’t discard the oyster liquor (faux pas).

#5 SAVOR: Chew a few times to get the full body taste; notice the progression from nose (salty) to body (sweet/flavors) to finish (lingering aroma).

#6 SHARE: Flip the shell over, discuss your impressions with friends and enjoy Genevieve MCC!

 

Genevieve MCC favourites brighten your winter blues.

Winter with Genevieve MCC

Here are some of Genevieve MCC favourite places to visit on cold cloudy day to brighten up the winter blues!

Needing a bit a TLC because the winter blues have set in, snuggle up at the Nellie for the High Tea with some Genevieve MCC, nothing beats a sugar rush on a cold winters day.

Get the buzz going with a champion flat white at the best coffee shop in the world at  Truth Coffee .

If you are in a sprint to get back to the comfort of your home after a hard day’s work, pop in for an early evening wine tasting at Wine Concepts or Vino Pronto.

For some inspiration, visit Wild Peacock (Stellenbosch) for a browse in their cozy wine shop and search out some of their delicious deli goods for a picnic next to the fire at home with some Genevieve of course!

If you need to stock up on some local products from the Overberg roll into Peregrine Farm Stall. Their restaurant winter specials include a bowl of hearty soup, a perfect break away from the chill outside.

And the ultimate getaway place in the valley is KolKol, relax in a log cabin with a roaring fire or plunge into the hot tub while sipping some Genevieve MCC.

Keep warm happy people!

Cheers

Melissa
