On the 8th and 9th of March Come Wine With Us kicked of the 2017 Cape Town calendar with a touch of sparkle and an elegant black & white affair as Durbanville Hills introduced guests to their brand new Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc. Of course, an occasion like this requires a gorgeous location to match, something which we certainly had thanks to the new Vista Marina restaurant in the V&A Waterfront.
Located behind the Two Oceans Aquarium, the Vista Marina, which opened back in December, offers an ultra-chic setting with the most incredible views of the V&A Waterfront & Table Mountain.
It was the perfect setting for this sparkling celebration which also featured a 3 course dinner which was carefully paired with a selection of Durbanville Hills’ finest wines.
After enjoying a glass of bubbles out on the deck, paired with lovely harissa spiced potato wrapped prawns, our guests took their seats inside for a warm welcome by Durbanville Hills cellar master, Martin Moore.
Martin shared the thinking and planning that went into their beautiful new Sparkling Sauvignon Blanc, which was thoroughly enjoyed by both the men and the ladies.
After some mingling we moved on to the first course which was a fresh salad consisting of buffalo mozzarella cheese, tomato mousse, confit tomatoes, tomato water gel, basil pesto crumble & balsamic cream paired with Durbanville Hills Chenin Blanc.
The main course was a juicy marinated rump espetada, served with Mediterranean vegetables, grilled olive bread served & a bordelaise bone marrow jus paired with Durbanville Hills Rhinofields Pinotage.
And for the final course we were treated to a mango and orange panna cotta with coconut tuilles & white chocolate star anise sauce paired with Durbanville Hills Merlot Rose.
It was a perfect evening of great wine, great food & great conversation and it’s all thanks to the incredible teams from Durbanville Hills and Vista Marina. We would also like to thank Zomato SA for introducing us to our stunning location for the evening and to Jomeri Mouton Photography for all the beautiful photos of the two evenings which you can view on our Facebook page.
