Ninas Cafe Wine Festival

The Wern show at Nina’s Cafe George

The Wern aka Wernhard van der Watt of Nina’s Cafe, that I consider a very good friend of myself and Bizoe Wines is operating amazing restaurant in York Street, George.

My path crossed with Wern in the May 2009 the first time meeting him at The Indaba Tourism Show in Durban. Wern that stage of his life ran a Wine Agency in the Garden Route. First Bizoe introduction to the Garden Route was through the hands of Wern.

Today Wern and his wife Natasha run their own restaurant in George called Ninas. Wern has always been a passionate foodie as they call it. Through a few knocks and turns Wern has decided to join the chef school. Now he living his passion to combine food and wine in his own restaurant.

We recommend a visit to Ninas Cafe when you are in George. The service and quality of food is outstanding. A restaurant where you will feel like you eating your own food from home just better. You will most definitely meet the big man with the big beard at the door to welcome you to his and Tash restaurant. Sound advice don’t ask him out about his little daughter. You will miss curfew and won’t make it to your table. A proud man indeed.

The past weekend the Ninas Cafe Wine Festival was a huge success and all participating farms had a great time and fun. Some of the Grape Hustle Crew enjoyed the weekend with us, specially Gabrielskloof Wines and Keermont Wines. Thanks Alex and Nina for making the weekend so much fun. The chicken korma was on the menu. I will pair the dish with Bizoe Henrietta 2018. The flavours of the food and wine did complement one another perfectly!

 Looking forward visiting Ninas soon again!
