Come Wine With Us one last time for 2015 #CWWU

bottomct

The final Come Wine With Us for 2015,was always going to be a bittersweet event for me,as I am really going to miss our monthly wine and dine evenings.

KWV-Brandy-range-00000003-page-001

This month would be the start of a series of “KWV Fine Brandy” evenings. We got to sample the awarding winning 12-year-old and 20-year-old pot still brandies as well as the newly released truffle-infused luxury Gin, “Cruxland”.

This evening’s dinner took place at Beluga Cape Town. An art deco, New York loft feel is combined with an open plan kitchen, sushi section and designer bar. A really interesting space.

After a short introduction by Sybil,and the representative’s from Beluga and KWV Brandy,we were ready to embark on our journey.

We were treated to KWV Cluxland gin and tonic naartjie swirll. The story of the Kalahari Truffle they use in the making of this gin,is certainly very interesting. Being a lover of all things sweet,this drink wasn’t for me,but the rest of the guest at our table loved it.
