Wine & Food Picnic brought 30 different wines to wine lovers


Dwine Wines took to Botswana’s second city to host a Wine & Food Picnic in Francistown on this weekend. Wine and food lovers got to appreciate the diverse range of wines and food tastings at the exquisite Cresta Marang Gardens.

“For many, the changing of seasons comes with a change in preferences in food and wine. Most prefer heartier meals with their red wines like in this season of winter. The wine and food picnic then became a great opportunity for Francistowners to understand and appreciate wines. It’s more than just selling wine- it’s about creating a wine experience,” said Dwine Wines Marketing officer, Elizabeth Baitumetse.

A colourful range of wine estates such as Weltevrede Wine Estate, Noble Hill Wine Estate, Rainbows End Wine Estate were available for wine lovers to swirl, sniff and sip copiously. The Wine & Food Picnic also hosted Sefalana Hyper who conducted the food tastings, including tutored tastings. Attendants had an opportunity to learn the basics of wine etiquette, how to do food pairings, why it is necessary to swirl and sniff and aspects of wine. It was a fun filled family picnic affair replete with kid’s entertainment, bonfire (marshmallow toasting) while DJ K.u.d provided the soothing musical background.

Dwine Wines is a dynamic and innovative company, boldly establishing a new standard in the culture of wine in Botswana. Inspired by the desire to demystify the world of wine for all to enjoy, it focuses on “customized wine branding”, wine distribution, high profile wine tastings, creative gifting and training.
