Heeeeey readers! Last time I told you that I’m speechless about Vergenoegd, which never happens (my friends say I talk too much – whatever guys, I just have a good vocabulary that I want to share with the world). So, the good news is that I have found the words! In your FACE speechlessness…
Onto the blending. In my previous post I mentioned that Vergenoegd is like a smorgasbord of experiences. Like blending your own wine that gets kept on file so that you can order more if you like. You even get your own label – fancy ne? (I should totally come up with something insanely awesome for my label *makes notes*). You can blend your own olive oil! (I love olive oil, everything is just better with olive oil… and butter). There’s coffee blending (I’d love to sound like a coffee aficionado here, but that’s a lie, I don’t like cof – put down your pitchforks, I’ll exit the room quietly). And, finally, there’s tea blending (tea is my drug. I love tea. Tea completes me).
Here’s a brief run through of what each blending experiences is about: each experience is done separately in rooms that are alive with almost 4 centuries of history (ghosties, ghoulsies, self-playing piano-sies – for realsies). For every blending, you get three different versions of whatever you’re blending, a few beakers and pipettes to make you feel like a scientist, and a great guide to tell you everything you need to do to get to the point where you have created your own delicious blend, which you can buy and take home. (*R200 for the informative and fun blending experience which includes a personalized and labelled product that you’ve created).
Like, are you KIDDING me? A day of sipping on glorious things that make the taste buds throw tiny bulbous banquets in my honour? SOLD.
We’ll go into the details of each experience in the coming weeks, so keep your eyes peeled for my next post! Until then, keep it classy and make sure you #visitVergenoegd. Seriously. Don’t make me force you.
