The first bubbles I ever tasted, was from my dads glass at a Christmas table. It was JC Le Roux. And it tasted good. Today, I wanna share, so there’s a chance for you to win! So lets make February a month of love to remember.
I arrive at the farm and it’s beautiful. You know how much I love a red carpet? Well, they have one!   And instead of an annoying entertainment reporter that hounding you about your dress code, the hosts at the reception desk are friendly and a few stairs to the restaurant takes you to some of the best tastes ever.

This is how amazing my Lunch was:

StarterBeautifully baked Camembert-
Fantastic. It’s all my favorite individual bites all on one plate. And instead of picking like I normally do…I piled my fork and ate it together. Yum.


Mains: Char grilled Sirloin Steak –
Topped with a Café du Paris sauce served with roasted vegetables and Potato Gratin. Hearty enough that Ian and I shared it. We asked them to divide it in the kitchen. The fancy sauce (which I can’t pronounce) tastes like homemade curry. The same kind of flavors that mommy uses for pickled fish. Good!

Dessert: ( I had this first….) Red velvet Cheese Cake.
We are all familiar with red velvet cake, but the cheesecake was extra decadent. I would recommend eating it before mains- everyone might be ordering it and there’d by none left for you. The coulis on top of the cake you could probably anywhere. But the dish was unique , pink and decadent.

Our tasting was a nice surprise. I thought at first,…Like REALLY , how many JC Le Roux varieties can their be!

Well, Ian tried a set selection of 5 Méthode Cap Classique’s that were pre-selected by the Cellar Master. You would have to book for this.  I’d rather buy it straight form the farm than from Makro where it’s also available. I picked a few favorites that are now chilling here at home.

My drink… A glass of J.C. Non Alcoholic Le Domaine and a glass of J.C. Non Alcoholic La Fleurette paired with Jelly Tots fudge, coconut ice and cranberry fudge. Absolutely delicious. And it’s only R50.00.   So you have no reason to be at a loss for words this Valentines day.!

So. Goodluck, and Happy month of Love!
