So, we arrived in timely fashion at Pegasus Bay on Friday afternoon, anticipating a splendid lunch........and we weren't disappointed!
Jo knows the owners and staff, so we schmoozed our way in.....
....and were seated in the most gorgeous setting with menus in hand!
The wine quickly followed.
The little cups in front of us above contained the most delicious chilled watermelon soup...OMG, it was divoon!
This is zucchini flower stuffed with marscapone and gorgonzola......I don't even like gorgonzola, but the marscapone over rode it and it was farking heavenly!
One of the husband/wife winemaker team came out to chat with Jo.
Here comes lunch!!!
A platter of the most marvellous porportions, laden with all manner of delightful, mouth watering goodies!
Then Matt (Mr Winemaker) took us off into the cavern of voluptuous winey delight so Jo could taste some new brews....if I can call new and nearly ready to bottle wine a "brew" !
He very kindly included my philistine self, and I happily guzzled my way through everything he handed me!!!
Their pinot noirs are TOO DIE FOR good, by the way!
This is my serious wine tasting face.
I, of course, swallowed everything I was given.
That's just the kind of girl I am.
Jo had to be sensible, and use the spittoon, as a) she was driving, and b) she needed to be professional!
And then we had to leave and make our way to our evenings accommodation....
