Monis Moments at The Mercury Wine Week.
This past weekend SIP Exclusive jumped on a flight to Durban for some well earned sunny weather but more importantly to assist in running the Monis Moments Cocktail bar at the prestigious Mercury Wine Week. This event has been one of South Africa’s premier wine events since 1979 and runs from the 27th to the 29th of August.
Our very own head mixologist and Founder of SIP Exclusive, Owen O’Reilly worked alongside Ryan Duvenage, one of SA’s top mixologists to develop some to die for Monis sherry cocktails. Monis is the Cape’s most longstanding brand of fortified wines, established in Paarl in 1906 by Italian Roberto Monis, a son of a prominent Tuscan winemaking and merchandising family. He soon became a prominent player in the South African wine industry and his name has become synonymous with premier fortified wines.
We worked with Artisan events who is our favourite partners for bar services in Durban, and with Sisters Act Event Management coordinated the entire setup and operations of the Cape Legends portfolio present at the show. This was one exceptional team to work with. The show was a great success in terms of feet through the door and brand to consumer interaction with the Monis Medium Cream Cobbler being the favourite wine based cocktail at the show.
We were serving the Pale Dry Sour, Medium Cream Cobbler and Full Cream Apple Pie Martini. There are no words to describe how tasty the Monis Moments cocktails were but feel free to go visit the website for some excellent cocktail ideas as well as food pairing and serving suggestion for you to create your own Monis Moments at home or call us and we will be sure to make it happen.
