Wine can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of how much you know about it. However, there are a few things that are handy to know if you really do love it.
We spoke to Zonnebloem’s winemaker, Kelly-Marie Jacobs about amazing things people do with wine that most of us probably do not know.
Use white wine to lighten up and ultimately remove red wine stains. But, best to do this as soon as the stain occurs – be it on your shirt, carpet or table cloth. Let the white wine sit on the red wine stain for a while before wiping off. Repeat. Finish with a bit of soda water to soak up the excess.
Poached eggs in red wine
For your next brunch date, try poaching your eggs in red wine. This is a traditional method of cooking eggs, in Burgundy, France. The eggs are then plated, with some bacon, onion, olives and heaps of fresh bread to soak up the wonderful red wine reduction sauce you have just cooked your eggs in.
