Twitter Triumph


The opening of Luan Nel’s latest exhibition Twitter at the Everard Read Gallery in Cape Town last night was a big fat success and the wines served (Lemoenfontein Pinotage 2010 and Astronaut Chenin Blanc 2011, both terroir treffers from the Siebritskloof of the Paardeberg) were well received. Who says Swartland wines or fine art need to have sky-high prices? The wines were all under R50 a bottle and the small works (below) R6K.

Then off to La Mouette in Sea Point (quite fitting, to eat at a restaurant called Sea Gull) with a bevvy of boisterous birds for bouillabaisse. To drink, an awesome Domaine de Dieux Pinot Noir 2010 (listed as De Dieux) with the option of a chilled or room temperature bottle. Like grappa and fairly priced at R250 for one of the finest Pinots outside the Paardeberg.
