Yesterday was a great day at the races! My friend Bruce van Halderen sure knows how to throw a party, The Loudfire tent just gets better every year.
Feeling a bit tired and mildly hungover from the previous nights drinks gathering at Wafu, we headed out to Tulbach to the House of Krone summer of elegance event on Twee Jonge Gezellen wine farm (here)
Damn it was hot. It felt like 40 degrees. We managed to prevent ourselves from wilting completely by sitting on the shady terrace with a breeze and smashed back a good few bottles of the very delicious Rose Cuvee Brut. The Krone Borealis Brut is among my favourite South African Cap Classique’s but wow pink bubbles are just that little bit yummier.
There was a fashion show (which we found terribly amusing by 3pm), an art exhibition, a display of vintage cars, Oysters, Sumo wraps (gobbled a very tasty smoked salmon, avo and cream cheese on arrival), chocolates, fudge, Olives and Oil from Groote Vallei (my aunt and uncles farm in the valley)…and some live music at sunset.
All round fabulous fun, great people …….probably a bit too hot but will definitely consider going back again next year.
