There’s no better way to spend an evening than with a glass (or two) of delicious wine in your hand, a plate of yummy grub in front of you and plenty of great conversation.  If you agree wholeheartedly then you are going to l.o.v.e, love what I have in store for you today. Come Wine With Us is a brand new food, wine and social club that combines three of my very favourite things and I’m quite sure it’s going to take the Joburg foodie scene by storm. Here’s why you simply must book now for their next event!

The thing I love most about Come Wine With Us is that although they organise regular monthly events you never know what to expect! You see, the super clever supper and wine club is always hosted at a different venue and features a new and exciting winery for you to explore at every event. I love it because it is a great way to discover new wines and explore Joburg’s best foodie joints on a regular basis, without killing your budget. It’s also a fabulous way to meet new people and there’s plenty of time to chat to guests in-between courses and tastings. The events usually take place on a weekday evening and will only set you back about R300 per person – that’s R300 for canapés, wine tasting and a three-course meal people!

The Come Wine With Us concept first started out in Cape Town and, after a few months of success in the Mother City, they finally decided to bring the events to Joburg. I went through to their very first Joburg event at Voodoo Lilly Cafe last week Wednesday and loved it so much I can’t wait to go to another one. The event saw us starting the night off with yummy Salmon and cream cheese phyllo basket canapés and a glass of KWV Sparkling Rose. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the organisers had booked out the whole restaurant for the evening’s event so we had free reign of the space. We found our seats just in time for the start of the Lindt chocolate and KWV wine pairing (yes all this before dinner – such a stunning way to start an evening) where we got the chance to pair six different types of Lindt chocolate with six glasses of KWV wine.

After the wine and chocolate pairing we took a short break and returned a few minutes later for the main event – the food! Dinner was a sumptuous affair and we tucked into Chicken Korma Spring Rolls (served with chutney, mango salsa and garnished with coriander) for starters, Free Range Beef Point Rump (served with deluxe mashed potatoes, seasonal greens and mushroom valute) for mains and Gorgonzola Dolce (served with candied walnuts, homemade ginger biscuits and fresh fruit) for dessert. Each course was, of course, also paired with a delicious KWV wine. After dinner we were given the chance to purchase our favourite wines from the night at discounted prices.

The Come Wine With Us events are a great way to get out and about in Joburg – whether you want to make a new friend or two or just want to enjoy a night of good food and great wine with friends – so make sure you book your spot for their next Joburg shindig!
