Marianne Wine Estate Pairing Dinner

Enjoy these sensational wines with food designed especially to bring out their full flavour!

Marianne Wine Estate, nestled between Stellenbosch and Paarl, make wine with the long game in mind; their creations get better with age, and on Friday, 26 May 2017 you’ll have a chance to enjoy their creations paired with delicious food at the Vineyard Hotel in Newlands.

The very talented head chef at the Vineyard Hotel, Chef Carl van Rooyen, has been working tirelessly with Marianne Wine Estate to create a menu that meshes perfectly with their well aged wines. The art of wine pairing is a delicate one, with the best flavour combinations occurring subtly on ones tongue. The trick is to always have a bite of the meal first, then sample the wine and have another sip; see how the flavour changes and you’ll be surprised at how different they can be.

The menu on the night features four delectable courses which include fish, venison, mushrooms, and white chocolate (not all at once obviously, that would not be pleasant no matter how much wine you’re given). Have a look below:
