The JoziFoodWhore invited me along to the delightfully fun Come Wine With Us event on the 26th of May. The evening was held at Punchinello, Monte Casino, together with KWV Roodeberg Wines. The wines were paired with a three-course Julia Child inspired meal, prepared by Chef Jade Sullaphen.
Thanks to Talamia for the awesome photos (I mixed hers in with my own) and Justin Serrao for keeping us entertained through the evening.

After sitting in Fourways traffic en route to the venue, this Roodeberg Rose was most welcome.

I may be showing off my wine tastebud ignorance but this Roodeberg Reserve is pleasantly earthy.

The Tuna Nicoise was indeed delightful
Tasting the Roodeberg White (a beautiful blend of chardonnay, chenin and several secret others), and the Dr Charles Niehaus Roodeberg. Absolutely divine!

Look at me, winning a Roodeberg red blend for my tweeting skills!
