Glow on Ice!



Glühwein is synonymous with Christmas in Europe where its beautiful warm flavours of spice help to thaw the winter’s ice and snow and complete the romantic picture of Christmas festivities in front of a roaring fire place.

Although we love the romance of an European winter and would love to make it part of our South African celebrations, it is plainly too hot during an average December to enjoy a glass of  warm Glühwein as it is conventionally served.

While being one of our popular wine cocktails served over weekends on our stretched out stoep, we are now doing a cooler version of this traditional drink for the summer months and especially the festive season.

Whether you prepare it at home or are joining us at Leopard’s Leap Family Vineyards, enjoy the season’s romance of a spicy glass of  Glühwein served over crushed ice for a refreshing twist.
