If you’ve never heard of Come Wine With Us – where have you been?
Come Wine With Us is essentially a well organised social event that brings together top quality food and wine at selected locations. Did I mention that the wine and food is top quality!? Cuase that it is…
We’ve been to a couple of their events and it never disappoints, the guys behind the scenes always ensures that everything runs like a well oiled machine and the service is top class. The venues are simply awesome and the evening is normally themed to some style which adds to the overall excitement of the event.
It works like this:
1) you get your hands on a pair of tickets to their next event, you can check and book via their website – COME WINE WITH US
2) On arrival at the venue, you are greeted with a smile and a glass of wine / bubbly… and yes you can get a refill.
3) Once the evening’s introductions are done you are shown to you table. It’s a group table and this is where the fun really starts, you get to meet some fab people. We’ve been lucky enough to actually make really good friends with a couple we met at our 1st event and the social circle keeps on growing.
4) At all times you have a glass of wine…
5) Then the food starts, depending on the evening it can be a 5 or 3 course menu. Each menu item is paired with a selected wine and you can see these guys know what they’re doing. It’s always funny to observe and listen to the other guests as the pairings are explained, everyone is intrigued by certain choices and you hear things like ‘oh, I never thought these would go together’ … and then there is the total ecstasy and jubilation after they tasted the ‘pairing’ in question.. ‘wow, this is so good / great / wonderful / amazing etc etc’
6) You chat all the time, you drink another glass of wine and eat the delicious food.
7) After all the meals are done, you normally have the opportunity to purchase some of the wines you had on the evening, at a good price of course.
8) You go home happy and make plans for the next event.
It’s fair to say that we love their events, it’s always been fantastic and we’ve invited people from our office with and all of them have become Come Wine With Us fans. It’s well worth the price of the ticket.
As per their website they have events in Cape Town and in Johannesburg on a regular basis and you can sign-up for their newsletter for information about upcoming events.
