February Vin-atics

09 Feb 2011

Hello Quaffers

Welcome to the first Vin-atics of 2011. We’ve kicked off this year with a total bang and have already had a completely fabulous braai with the most hilarious and entertaining guests!

Welmoed Wines are one of the most affordable, accessible and truly good value partners we’ve ever had at Vin-atics (read more about them here) and they’re always up for something a bit different. So this month, we suggested a braai to them and they leapt at the chance – I mean, let’s face it – who doesn’t want to braai in this weather?

And the rain came down...

If only we had had this weather last week when we actually held our braai!! The one night in the month when it absolutely HOONED down and we were all out in Sam’s garden huddled under an umbrella. But it takes more than a spot of rain to daunt braai Gods Pete Goffe-Wood and Jan Scannell who were our experts for the evening, along with red wine lover and writer, Erika Borman and tell-it-like-it-is wine blogger, Dion Martin. If you want to read what an absolutely awesome time we had then click here.
