So you’re having a dinner party?


Why not throw a degustation dinner with matching wines?

A dinner party truly isn’t a dinner party without the wine. What can make it truly memorable for your guests is pairing your wine with what you are eating. It can make it interesting and fun for all involved – you may even want to try a “blind tasting” where your guests have to guess what they are drinking.

Here are some suggestions for how the night can go.

Jansz Premium Cuvee Tasmania

Champagne/Sparkling/Prosecco –The bubbles aren’t just for the thrill of it, they prepare your palette for some serious food.

La Vendetta Pinot Grigio, Italy
Pinot Grigio – Start with a nice crisp white as not to overpower your first course.

Heggies Chardonnay, Eden Valley
Chardonnay – The “red” of the whites, a Chardonnay will add another dimension and complexity to your next course.

Rabbit Ranch Pinot Noir, Central Otago NZ
Pinot Noir – A light red which will add a further dimension to your degustation menu, and can be a perfect accompaniment to seafood.

Rymill Cab Sauv, Coonawarra
Cabernet Sauvignon – While Shiraz is the obvious “closer” before dessert a nice Cabernet Sauvignon is a perfect end before the finale.

De Bortoli Noble One, Riverina
Dessert Wine – Botrytis is a dessert in itself with the deliciously sweet nectar-like taste. A perfect end to the evening.
