Wine enthusiasts can join white-wine maker Gunther Kellerman for a ‘Rich Man Poor Man’ wine pairing at The Eatery at Durbanville Hills Wines on Thursday June 21 from 6.30pm.
Food and wine pairings generally focus on the sumptuous, but when a tight budget calls for something less extravagant, combining it with a glass of your favourite wine can make it a lot more palatable. With Kellerman’s insights, discover the secrets of superior wine pairing when matching the wines of Durbanville Hills with convenience foods such as peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and good old pepper steak pie.
Attendees will try the Sauvignon Blanc paired with both sushi and salted chips, and compare the taste of the Chardonnay when teamed up with both creamy Parmesan pasta and buttered popcorn.
After the wine and food pairing, dinner follows in The Eatery at Durbanville Hills with a choice of either its famous chicken pie or an ostrich burger. Coffee or tea and biscotti will be served afterwards.
* Entry is R175 per person (includes welcome drink and wine pairing followed by dinner, coffee or tea and biscotti. There is also a gift bag to take home).
Space is very limited and booking is essential. Call Simone Brown on 021 558 1300 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
