Christmas, and the whole festive season, is one of my favourite times of year. Over the weekend, we found the perfect Christmas tree and the kids and I decorated. Precious family heirlooms were hung with care. Little hands were excited to place handmade beauties on the tree; such pride and joy on little faces as their decorations are put on display.
While we are still a little unsure of what format Christmas celebrations can take this year, our family are planning for a family celebration with fingers and toes crossed. We are still hoping we will be able to eat, drink and be merry with friends and family. Here at Elderton we celebrate our year with a staff Christmas party, where we all get to be in one place at the same time – vineyard, warehouse, winery, cellar door – we all come together for a great lunch.
With all that the festive season brings, you might be entertaining friends and family – and you might be looking for some simple ideas on what to eat and drink. Look no further!
Perfect for a celebration with family and friends over the festive season, here is a menu to set your mouths watering just thinking about food and wine pairings.
