Come Wine With Us – Venetian Masked Affair with Plaisir de Merle wines. – René Petersen

Our final CWWU for 2017 saw our heading off to the picturesque farm in the Simondium, nestled between Franschhoek and Paarl. As it was the final outing for 2017, a little bit more effort was required and guests were requested to stick to the theme…Venetian Masks for all


As usual Sybil and her team pulled out all the stops and guests obliged by donning their best. Upon arrival we were quickly asked to pose for our group shots.


We then enjoyed drinks and canapes at the cellar with wine maker Niel Baster. After that we headed to the Manor house and enjoyed a three course dinner prepared by Chef Mynhardt, paired with Plasir de Merle wines while enjoying some live music by The Claire de Kock duo.






Sybil who has crept into all of our hearts made such a heart-warming speech at the end that had many of us “old” CWWU’s reach for our tissues and hankies.

Thank you Sybil for all you do and all the hard work and effort, you and your team rock. We wish you nothing but success for 2018.
