The air was crisp and cold, but the little cherub statue outside the car park helped make the place look like a Tuscan village and somehow, inviting! We have been there before, but I had forgotten just what a lovely atmosphere the Cafe has and was even more surprised to find the old Italian owner recognise us! We had not been there for about 10 years!While we waited for our friends, Paul and Marteen, we sat beside a crackling fire and enjoyed a "quiet libation"! The tasting room was beautifull decorated and the wine tasting was hosted by the Momberg Family from Middelvlei Wine Estate and it was quite different to any wine tasting I have attended before.
Paul, Marteen and Philip enjoying their glass of Momberg, Middelvlei's top red wine. It is quite expensive, and not being a huge red wine drinker myself, I didn't appreciate it at all. I much prefered the Pinotage (which impressed the wine-maker - HA!) with the Chardonnay being my favourite!
Evidence that we there! Oh my word - look at all those glasses - but then we did have a clean glass for each blend! LOL!... nothing like a nice, creamy cup of DECAF to end off an otherwise perfect evening! I look forward to the next one!
