There’s something sultry about summer in Joburg – mornings of sunshine often followed by moody late afternoon thunderstorms. An appropriately eclectic weather pattern for a city so beautifully diverse.
On Sunday, 11 February, we got to enjoy the former – a perfectly sunny late morning/early afternoon Summer Garden Party at the magical Buitengeluk in Broadacres.
Sexy summer wines
Our brunch celebration was the first official Joburg Wine Club event following our launch in November last year and we were proud to have six of our fabulous wine partners showing off their sexiest summer wines.
Boschendal, Diemersfontein, Groot Constantia, La Motte, Nitida and Plaisir de Merle took out all the stops, tantalising the taste buds of our stylish Joburg crowd.
Judging by the feedback on social media a few of the firm favourites of the day included:
Boschendal’s Brut Rosé
Diemersfontein’s Reserve Chenin Blanc
Groot Constantia’s Blanc de Noir
La Motte’s Syrah
Plaisir de Merle’s Grand Brut
Nobody does style quite like Joburg
But, man! Doesn’t Joburg just make wine look extra good?
Surrounded by some of the city’s most exquisite social butterflies, we were just reminded again that nobody does style quite like Joburg.
Fashion choices for the day ranged from bold and colourful to classic minimalist to perfectly pretty… and EVERYONE just looked good!
To complement the sultry summer day, the sexy wines and all the beautiful people, songbird Wenawedwa Kennedy brought the smoothest, soulful jazz.
But what would a brunch party be without food? Buitengeluk outdid themselves with eye-popping and mouth-watering bite-size treats that will have us all coming back for more.
Here are a few of our favourite moments of the day shared on social media:
