It is school holidays at the moment and once or twice a year with the children, family, friends and neighbours, we get together and have a big bonfire night! We collect together all the off cuts of vines, branches etc from the winery and make a huge pile ready for the big night.
We bake potatoes in the coals and cook the sausages on top so they get a great charcoal taste, we love it! We then pile up the potatoes with cheese, sour cream, coleslaw, and fried onions, the flavours are delicious.
We then all sit around the fire and watch the flckering of the flames forming various shapes of dragons and lions (The children’s imagination is fascinating). To finish off we usually toast marshmallows for the children and enjoy the night, sitting back with a glass of Red.
