February is the month to celebrate romance. Candlelit dinners, flowers and of course – wine. This year Come Wine With Us decided to get into full romantic swing and hosted their first Valentines razzle with KWV Classic wines in Johannesburg.
The perfect setting for the aphrodisiac inspired evening was La Vie en Rose in Ilovo. La vie en rose literally translates to Life in Pink, meaning a life through rosy spectacles and guests were encouraged to wear a touch of pink which added a rosy romantic glow to the evening.
Guests were welcomed with a glass of KWV Classic Shiraz Rose or a KWV Moscato Aperol Spritzer cocktail.
A starter of Norwegian Salmon with a lime and mint dressing served on a bed of wild rocket commenced the evening’s dining paired with a KWV Classic Sauvignon Blanc, 2014.
This was followed by the main course of La Vie en Rose rump steak topped with cherry balsamic reduction and served with wilted spinach & rosemary roasted potatoes beautifully complimented by KWV’s Classic Cabernet Sauvignon 2013.
An evening like this could only have been rounded off with a little extra indulgence off course. The desert was a Decadent duet of deliciousness – Pink strawberry macaroon served with deep-fried Toblerone dark chocolate tart and the evenings dining was perfectly finished with a KWV Classic NV Full Cream Sherry.
All the guests had a delightful time and loved all the different Valentines elements to the evening. Janky and Ronny of La Vie en Rose did a spectacular job with their fantastic aphrodisiac inspired menu. Guests were left feeling cheerfully rosy and inspired.
