The Adventurer's Guide to a Kumala Christmas Monday 29 October 2007 PDF Print If the thought of Christmas conjures up images of overcooked turkey, soggy vegetables and bored relatives, then why not inject the spirit of adventure into this year’s festivities with Kumala, the UK’s favourite South African wine. As the nation’s No 1 South African choice, Kumala is the perfect accompaniment to the Adventurer’s Guide to Christmas, offering a vibrant taste of adventure with full bodied reds and crisp fruity whites to excite your taste buds. Tingling the taste buds Tired of the traditional festive fare? Why not try something a little more daring this year and roast a joint of Wild Boar or Guinea Fowl. For the even more intrepid, try roasting a delicious whole suckling pig – a Christmas Day delicacy in South Africa, served with yellow rice and raisins. Try matching your Kumala wines to your dishes and your guests - a delicious Chardonnay Semillon to suit your free-spirited, young-at-heart Aunt and a velvety, full-bodied Merlot Ruby Cabernet for your stylish cousin! Banish the tinsel Dusted off each year, festive decorations are usually a sad combination of tatty baubles and shabby centrepieces. Why not banish the tinsel this Christmas and give your home an exotic South African twist by taking on some of their festive traditions and draping your windows with sparkling streamers, decorated pine branches and glittering angels. For an extra touch, make your own crackers and personalise your gifts to reflect the personalities of your guests. For the pièce de résistance, place a beautiful Protea, South Africa’s national flower, at the centre of your table and have your guests wowing at your vibrant artistic flair! Dining in Style Holding a Christmas dinner party this year? Try something a little different by bringing some South African colour to your table. Fill your house with stunning floral arrangements and greet your guests with brightly coloured headdresses and a glass of refreshing Kumala Chenin Blanc Chardonnay. You will be amazed how much quicker the party gets going when you have injected some vibrancy to the occasion! Music by candlelight is also a popular custom in a South African household at Christmas, so turn the lamps off, get the candles burning and belt out your favourite festive tunes! If Christmas entertainment normally consists of the Queen’s speech followed by re-runs of tired Bond films and snoring grandparents, then inject some adventure into your Christmas by playing some themed party games. Try charades with an African twist (think ‘The African Queen’) or devise your own murder mystery game with famous South Africans as featured guests. Make your chosen activity even more competitive by giving a prize to the lucky winner – hide the gift somewhere in the house and set them off on a festive treasure hunt! With a full range of delicious wines available nationwide, Kumala has something for every taste and palate so why not bring a taste of adventure to the festivities this year by hosting your very own Kumala Christmas. We have stocks of Kumala wine available for sampling, as well as high resolution bottle shots and lifestyle images if required.
