For a more adventurous wine pairing we spoke to Ulyn van Zyl, Tasting Room Supervisor, about the Neethlingshof Flash Food & Wine Pairing experience.
An absolute MUST at Neethlingshof! The Flash food and wine pairing concept came from the idea of pairing everyday food options with a range of Neethlingshof wines, and therefor making it a “take back home” experience where clients can purchase a bottle of their favourite wine and enjoy it with a meal at home. The exciting food offerings range from a spicy samosa and Mango atjar paired with Gewürztraminer, to a mini Prego roll matched with the Owl Post Pinotage. The full tasting is comprises of 5 different wines and food nibbles, which change with the seasons to keep the pairings relevant to either the warm summer months or cold winters.
“I believe this pairing is an excellent alternative to having a platter with your wine tasting. Not only is the portion size sufficient to act as a light meal offer, but it also highlights which dishes go really well with which wines. At only R65 per person, this food pairing is a great value for money and is not to be missed! To ensure availability, booking in advance is strongly recommended,” says Ulyn.
