PECANS AND @ SIGNS
The scene that captured my immediate attention upon arrival at Jan Harmsgat Country House was the open fire pit nestled between the dining hall and a grove. After being shown my luxury five star accommodation for the night, I met fellow Bloggers and Roberstonians (is this a word?) around the fire pit. Our host for the evening, Letishia, and her team welcomed me to Jan Harmsgat Country House (JHG) with a mind-blowing taste explosion simply named: Pomegranate Martini.
After the fireside chitchat, we were ushered to a three-course meal with an added twist: the JHG wine pairing. How is this different from normal pairing? Instead of morsels meant to complement the wines, the wines complemented entire courses. One for each and oh-so fantastic, especially the lamb and pecan pie.
Fun fact: Jan Harmsgat Pecan Pie is made from organically grown Pecans on their farm.
I finally announced that I was ready to head to bed and was greeted by a fantastic turn down service with small gifts that were scattered across the room as a Robertsonain Treasure Hunt.
The following morning I indulged in a bubble bath and two cups of coffee in bed. As a busy Mom and Entrepreneur such pleasures are few and far between. So while my fellow Blogger, Keeping Your Sanity, was treated to an early-morning photo shoot, I submerged myself in the warmth and history of the room by researching the lands that JHG lie on from the booklets next to the bed.
Once seated at Breakfast, I was rather proud of myself for opting for the “healthy” choice over a traditional English Breakfast as I knew that I had a full day of Wine Tasting ahead of me and truly believe that the JHG Super Green Juice prepared me well. Knowing that I had just had one of the best night’s sleep and it was time say goodbye, I took several memory snaps of the beauty that surrounds the Country House promising myself that I will return soon.
My favourite Jan Harmsgat Wine: JHG Sauvignon Blanc
Added Bonus: JHG is a Wedding Venue too!
