Jozi residents can now enjoy a range of fine boutique wines straight from the estate at the newly launched Boutique La Vino. Born out of a passion to share a love for wines, Boutique La Vino will host a range of authentically crafted wines and champagnes.
Husband and wife owners, Bronwyn and Wynand Strydom, are no strangers to the hospitality industry having run their event company since 2008. With nearly 14 years of experience putting together stunning weddings, 21sts, baby showers, corporate events and more Wynand and Bronwyn are proud to offer a little slice of the Cape, and the beautiful boutique wines they offer.
Speaking at the opening Wynand said Boutique La Vino “will offer wine lovers boutique wines that are not readily available for purchase at the bigger stores”. Wynand and Bronwyn will also host a different estate at least once a month and visitors will get a taste of new wines at these events. Set in the surrounds of the Flamingo Nest precinct, corner of Dove and Boundary Roads, Rynfield, Benoni, Boutique La Vino will also offer wine pairings, tastings, events, fine dining and on-site sales.
Boutique La Vino launched on Saturday, 12 June, with 50 guests in attendance and all Covid protocols in place. Tshepiso Malefane, Brand Ambassador and Sales Representative for Lomond Wines, was at the event to introduce four of this Gans Baai estate’s the top wines. On offer were
two reds, a Merlot Rose and a Sauvignon Blanc.
Gauteng residents can buy their favourite boutique wines directly from Wynand. They will also be offering various pairings in the near future and some other exciting events. The venue is available for hosting weddings, functions, conferences and more.
The Youth Day public holiday on 16 June will bring a cheese, biltong, preserves and wine pairing. The wine on offer will be from Canto Estate. July will see an ‘Oyster and Bubbly’ (or wine for those wine lovers) event while those keen for a bit of murder mystery should pencil in their 31 July ‘Wine & Di(n)e’ evening. Follow their facebook site to be in the loop for all upcoming events.
“Once Covid rules relax we will host private functions of up to 160 guests, and we will also have accommodation on site,” says Bronwyn. “And as we have water-frontage we’re looking into Wine-On-The-Water in the summer months,” she added.
