The West Coast holds a special place in Douglas Green winemaker Jaco Potgieter’s heart. This is an easy but fool proof recipe he often prepares for his family on holiday at Yzerfontein. And if like Jaco you want to experience the rustic culinary tradition of the West Coast at its best, do the cooking and eating right there on the beach with the sand between your toes.   The mineral, fruit-forward Douglas Green Chenin Blanc is the perfect complement for the salty, earthy West Coast mussels,” says Jaco. “The wine also doesn’t overpower the delicate sauce. I would say it was made to match the fresh flavours of the sea!”
