There is something in the way the subtle flavours and balance of wine really come alive when paired with its food counterpart.  It’s something we like to call the ‘wow factor’. Interested in discovering this for yourself?  You’re in luck! We are hosting a series of wine & food pairing evenings  November 6, November 27, and December 4 2014 where you can experience what a difference the right dish can make. Here, not only will we be showcasing commercial examples of our upcoming special edition wines, but you will be trying them with perfectly paired food.

Wine and food have gone hand in hand since around 6000 BC when people first started fermenting grapes. It’s interesting to look at cultures with a long history of grape growing and to see how their cuisine and wine mesh together perfectly, as if both food and wine were specifically designed with the other in mind.

Take Bordeaux in France for example, Bordeaux is often described as a ‘food wine’ but what does this mean? Having a glass of Bordeaux on its own, while certainly enjoyable, isn’t nearly as mind blowing as pairing with with duck or lamb traditionally grown in Bordeaux, or with a rich creamy mushroom truffle sauce which the region is also known for.
