The Wine Pairing evenings at Lanser’s on Main always begin with a fun poem about wine. We search high and low for light hearted rhymes that will start the evening with a smile. Sometimes we write them ourselves

For our Zevenwacht Wine Pairing in May 2024, we were joined by Janine Shearer representing the farm. We wrote the following poem to kick things off….


Welcome back,
It’s been a while
An invitation to Wine Pairing
I bet it brought a smile

Zevenvacht’s our wine
A farm from Stellenbosch
Meaning Seven Expectations
By golly, that sounds posh

I have some peeps
Tonight I must mention
Dom our good friend
Out spending his pension

Can’t leave out Auralia
She’s about to split
Rumour has it
She’s fallen in love with a Brit

On to my favourites
The gorjus hot ducks
Looking radiant as ever
Wish I’d worn a Tux

Kerry’s back
For a brief interlude
With Catherine and friends
That table’s bound to get rude

Enough now, Barrie
It’s time to stop
The next course’ almost ready
And there’s wine to dop
