Wine Tasting at Belvidere Estate


Friend - "Jade, do you feel like going to a cheese and wine tasting with me?"

Jade - "Are you being serious?"

Friend - "Yes..."

Jade - "That is the stupidest question you have ever asked me."


I love wine.... and cheese for that matter. So combine the two and you have one very happy Jade. 



So of course I accepted the offer and went to this beautiful house right on the water to glug back a few bottles of some South African wine. Although I did spend the majority of the night hovering around the cheese platters as I sipped graciously on my wine... I did manage to get a few photographs in:





Although I have always loved red wine and know that without a doubt I always will - especially in the cold winter nights snuggled by the fireplace... I've become a bit of a white wine junkie of late. It's Summer in South Africa right now, so nothing quite beats that chilled crisp taste of a nice glass of chardonnay. Also, it has some serious perks:
  • It doesn't leave that obvious stain on your lips like a red wine does.
  • It doesn't make your teeth go blue.
  • It doesn't leave you with such an incredibly nasty hangover the next morning.
  • It doesn't stain your clothes or carpet for that matter... I have previously been dubbed, 'A Bad Day In Bosnia,' which means that I am basically a disaster waiting to happen.... keep me away from the red!!!
  • It's great with sushi lunches. 
I love wine... Red or White..

Nothing quite beats a good merlot though, right?? 


What is your favorite wine?

  4. I love red wine too. I'm a Cabernet Sauvignon kinda girl myself. But I've just taken an interest in white wine too. I haven't quite found the right one for me, just yet. I always think; headache, when I think of white wine. But red wine is the devil.. I get really hammered when I drink it.. So if I can drink red to just have a glass or two, but no more, I'm good.
