Pongracz Sparkling Wine: ‘I drink it when I’m happy and when I’m sad. Sometimes, I drink it when I’m alone. When I have company, I consider it obligatory. I trifle with it if I’m not hungry and drink it if I am; Otherwise I never touch it – unless I’m thirsty.’
I love eating out! Not necessarily so that I can spend money on food, but because I get to dress up. When I got the invite to Fire and Ice hotel Melrose arch, for an afternoon leading to evening, drinking Pongrácz sparkling wine #BottomlessBubbles, I was excited. I mean, who doesn’t like chilled vibes on a Sunday? It’s the perfect day to spend time with friends, drinking Pongrácz Rose, eating good food and have Fire and Ice hotel play sweet mellow sounds, just to later be graced by the presence of Dineo Ranaka, bringing the house down with local and international bangers.
And who else to bring along as my plus one? Bongiwe obviously!! The one and only. We have so much fun when we are together. I tend to relate to Bongi a lot more, during this stage of my life. We roughly the same age, we both don’t have children, we are STUNNING!!! and we are both battling with similar demons. Lol it’s like after the demons have terrorized me, they knock on her door. Then we call each other and banish these wicked spirits.
Bongi is a great sister and friend and these titles are inclusive of a kick-ass photographer. I love friends that know your hustle and are willing to walk through the fire with you just so that they can get you to the other side safe, and a hero. Although Bongi and I had such a fun time at the Pongracz bottomless bubbles at Fire and Ice, we were also there for work. Work first, then the fun and games later. I can’t begin to tell you how I felt when I saw the first few shots Bongi took of me. They were beautiful!! And these images, all taken by her, are one of the many reminders that we belong to the same WhatsApp group.
One can’t just wear anything to a sparkling wine event. Pongrácz Sparkling wine demands elegance, chicness and, high fashion and luxury so i wore this red wrap dress from the fix. Sparkling wine is one of the elegant extras in life and so I decided to look the part, including the eyelashes. So extra! But why not!!! Too much of anything is bad, but extra Sparkling wine is just right.
We had such a fun time at Melrose Arch Fire and Ice. When I think about the day I spent with one of my best friends, I think, wow, what a beautiful day it was. Or maybe it was so breathtakingly gorgeous because we had bottomless bubbles???? Lol who knows? Sparkling wine…it gives you the impression that every day is Sunday. And why not pour the Pongracz Sparkling wine and let its mousse rise, like thousands of sparkling brown smiling eyes. There is nothing more beautiful than a sunset, viewed over a glass of chilled Champagne or Sparkling wine sunsets by the pool
