As sommeliers believe “You have to taste a culture to understand it” and especially its wines. Thus, we offer you a journey Around the World featuring 7 wines from different parts of the globe. Each wine is paired with an appetizer that balances the components of the food with the characteristics of the wine.

Travelers will start in France with JP. Chenet, Brut Blanc de Blancs a white sparkling wine made up of a “blend of white grapes.” From France we travel on to Germany with a FRITZ ZIMMER wine crafted by the Römerhof winery. Unlike many larger German wineries, Heinz Eifel himself, owner of Römerhof, and his winemaker daughter have control over the entire winemaking process.

Next, we visit the Monteforte area within the Veneto region of northern Italy. Anselmi, San Vincenzo has forged a category of its own and established new markers for quality in Italian wines. This food friendly wine pairs well with the chef’s special Thai red curry mussels.

After a stop in South Africa and Portugal you travel on to the Golan Heights of Isreal in which you can relax, sit back and just taste. The Golan Heights is a truly exciting and fascinating region with an enchanting, ancient history and landscapes. Thanks to the cool, unique climate and its basalt soils, the region is one of the best, most dynamic and renowned wine region in Israel.

We invite you to join us in this unforgettable private wine journey which includes a Cabernet Sauvignon from Region Galilee that will be paired with a lamb endive with cherry and balsamic sauce. The wine stands up to the stronger flavor of lamb.

Our travels end in Australia’s Barossa Valley with Penfolds Bin 28. This wine showcases the warm-climate Australian Shiraz, First made in 1959, Bin 28 is named after the famous Barossa Valley Kalimna Vineyard purchased by Penfolds in 1945. This ripe, robust and generously flavored wine is paired with braised beef short ribs. The flavor is pleasant and when combined with the softness and juiciness of the meat, it is the perfect pairing for the Australian Shiraz.
