Un-Valentine’s Day Feast

Tired of not being able to eat out on the 14th of February because you’re not part of a couple? Are you sick of over-priced red roses, tasteless heart-shaped confectionery and Chris de Burgh?

Well then you should join us for our Un-Valentine’s Day Feast at Bread & Wine! On the 14th of February Neil Jewell will be preparing a sensational three course dinner and there is only one unbreakable rule … absolutely no tables of two. In fact, to ensure strict enforcement of said unbreakable rule, everyone will be seated at one long and very social table. Don’t worry about feeling awkward there will be more than enough personality-reviving wine on offer from the Môreson. Who knows you might get to sit next to a real looker?

The dinner costs R250 per person (payable in advance) and includes a glass of Miss Molly Bubbly on arrival. There are only 20 places available so if you’re interested you really should book ASAP.

For more information, or to reserve your space at the UnValentine’s Day Feast, call Tina on (021)876 3692 or email her breadandwine@moreson.co.za.

Time for Môreson Méthode Cap Classique

With the festive season upon us it’s time to stock up on Môreson Méthode Cap Classique.  Whether you’re celebrating or trying to dull the pain of the prolonged family visits, Môreson is a delicious way to get the job done!

We suggest packing that boot (or trunk) full of the award-winning Môreson Solitaire Blanc de Blancs. It’s just won one of only three golds at Veritas, and it’s pretty as a picture making it the perfect choice for the upcoming festivities!

A case, of six, will cost you R534 (including VAT) directly from the farm. For more information call Hanri on (021) 876 3055 or email sales@moreson.co.za.

Neil Jewell wins 2010 Global Pizza Challenge

Neil Jewell – head chef and Charcuterie King at Bread & Wine Vineyard Restaurant on Môreson – has recently won the South African leg of the 2010 Global Pizza Challenge. This means that in May 2010 Neil will be heading off to Melbourne to represent South Africa in finals of the Global Pizza Challenge.

The pizza that clinched first place – and, according to insider information, it knocked the judges socks off – had a smoked flour base and was topped with aubergine, confit of Karoo lamb, sheeps’ feta, buchu and quince dressing.

This pizza has now been added to the Bread & Wine menu making it possible for anyone dining at Bread & Wine to try Neil’s award-winning pizza.
