Overlap 2-3 grapevine leaves, vein-side up, to form a circle.
Place a goat-cheese round in the centre of the circle.
Wrap 1 strip of roasted pepper around the cheese and carefully wrap the leaves snugly around the cheese.
Repeat process for remaining cheese rounds.
Brush each bundle with olive oil.
Over medium-high heat, grill the leaf bundles for 2 minutes on one side. Turn the bundles and cook for 2 minutes more.
To serve, place vine-leaf bundle in the centre of a large plate. Open up the leaves and drizzle with olive oil. Serve with crostini or flatbread.
