The sparkle in your relationship
In the heart of Devon Valley on the outskirts of Stellenbosch, The House of J.C. Le Roux offers lovers the ideal romantic setting on Saturday, 14 March - whether it is to celebrate new found love or to put the sparkle back into your marriage.

Why not pamper your sweetheart to a special day filled with flutes of bubbly and passionate food this year. South Africa's leading house of sparkling wine will open its doors from 10h00 to 16h00 for visitors to sip on their success with enlightening cellar tours scheduled for 10h00 and 12h00. Couples can also book for a light, yet luscious, a la carte lunch from 12h30.

Accentuate your affection for each other and share some oysters drizzled with a zealous Bloody Mary sauce or nibble on peppadew and goat's milk cheese phyllo parcels for starters. Indulge in succulent springbok fillet with sour fig and cream sauce to tantalise your tastebuds or let the Thai prawns dressed in sweet chilli sauce add spice to your main course. Alternatively tuck into the melt-in-the-mouth calamari steak with naartjie and Van der Hum preserve or garlic and lemon sauce.

Sweeten her senses and end your afternoon in pure decadence with honey nuts and blue cheese spring rolls for dessert. Sit closer for spoonfuls of malva pudding with apricot ice cream or let all resistance crumble over Boernooiens (brandy) and ice cream. Only fools rush in so be sure to book your seat!
