Roodeberg red Vin-atics

20 May 2011

Hello wine-lovers,

Sjoe – I thought we might have met out match this month at Vin-atics!! 6 completely different dishes to go with the same wine? It pushed Chef Caro and I to our creative limits, but boy – didn’t she do well in the end?

How much fun can you have with one wine?

Quite enough as it turns out! Luckily for us the Roodeberg is a fantastically versatile wine which actually made pairing it to food much easier than we expected. If you want to see how it managed when faced with meat, blue cheese, mushrooms and chocolate, then click here to see what fun we had at last month’s dinner. All the recipes and more information about Roodeberg can be found here as well.

Roodeberg – making real memories!

I must say it was awfully obliging of Raphaella and Ernst to make their own genuine memory with Roodeberg and get engaged on the day we’d invited them to come to dinner – I wonder what wine they’re going to choose for their wedding now??! All our guests were fantastic as per usual – we do seem to attract a nice bunch of party-people for some reason – and their comments, as always were pithy, witty and to the point.

And now it’s over to you.

Honestly, if these Vin-atics competitions get any easier, my ‘can’t-cook, won’t-cook’ husband would enter! Buy a bottle of Roodeberg (in fact, buy a couple because this is an extremely good value winter wine and I know you’re going to love it!), pick a couple of our recipes – hell, pick a couple of your own if you think you can do better than us! - cook, eat, drink, take pics and then tell us all about it. Best report wins a case of delicious Roodeberg wines – mmm, perhaps I will get Kevin to take part after all!

Send your report or link to your blog before the end of the month and we’ll announce the winner in early June. Go on – it’s winter, it’s red and it’s time to make a memory with Roodeberg for yourself!

Happy drinking,
