August Vin-atics with La Motte Wines
Is this a
great month for drinking wine or WOT?! We had such an awesome time with La Motte and their terrific selection of
Shiraz and Shiraz blends this month – it just seems as if the Vin-atics wines
are getting better all the time! Or maybe it’s our party-throwing skills or
cooking abilities – who can tell?
Check out the Vin-atics dinner with La Motte
you’ve got to take a look at the blog report on how much fun we had at our
dinner this month – click here to see all the action. The Shiraz flowed
and the cell-phones sang – three cheers for our new favourite sport of iPhone
Karaoke! If you want to read more about the different shirazes we enjoyed on
the evening, then click here. And if you want to find out about
La Motte’s amazing Shiraz Experience event, then click here – hurry, there’s only a few days
left if you want to join them!
Food, glorious (ish) food!
four dishes from the six on offer – click here to see the full choices and links
to the recipes – and whilst most of the food was good, Chef Caro has a lot to
answer for when it comes to that aubergine pate! If you know a better version,
then we strongly advise you to make it instead. Which brings us to my next
point – did you know that there is a case of 6 bottles of gorgeous La Motte
Shirazes available to the person who makes the best Vin-atics dinner for
themselves at home? Front-runner at the moment is Anetha from Cape Town who made
the aubergine pate, pork, pistachio and apricot terrine and steak with peppercorn sauce and had a fabulous time. Read all about her dinner party
So why don’t YOU have a go this month as well?
easy – all you have to do is get hold of a bottle or two of La Motte’s
delicious wines, pick a recipe or two and invite a friend or two to join you.
Cook, eat, drink, take pictures, have a great time and then tell us all about
it. The case of wine goes to the best entry so email us on email@example.com before the end of the month.
