Come Wine With Us and Boschendal Wines: #TheArtOfPairing JHB Blog Post

Open Event

We recently partnered up with Boschendal Wines to explore the very literal art of pairing. This theme explored art, wine, food and how all three are best enjoyed together, along with how each is an art in its own right. Read all about our exceptional event in Cape Town, where we collaborated with 99 Loop Gallery and The Wild Fig Restaurant.

Our Johannesburg event was hosted at Sophia’s Bistro, the sibling to the much-loved Sophia’s and home to mouth-watering seafood, pasta dishes and light meals. Art that we showcased on the evening reigned from the esteemed Henry George Gallery, and featured the gallery’s top artists: Solomon Omogboye, Jamy van Zyl, Charleen Brunke and Banele Njadayi.

Guests arrived to a glass of Boschendal Brut NV MCC and Boschendal Demi Sec NV MCC. Starters consisted of a Hearty Minestrone Soup served with Parmesan Focaccia Crisp. This was just in time for the crisp evenings we have been enjoying in Joburg, and was paired with the Boschendal Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2017, a wine which delivers a fresh green apple taste with hints of citrus and subtle almond biscotti and brioche.

Keeping with the hearty theme, the mains consisted of Traditional Osso Bucco – this was served with crushed potato bake and seasonal veggies. Our vegetarian guests savoured a delightful, robust Panzerotti di Zucca. Mains were paired with Boschendal 1685 Shiraz, which offered a generous, deep black fruit and riper vintage fruit expression with pepper spice

For those with a sweet tooth, dessert would have been a highlight: Sophia’s specialty Crème Brûlée served with Cassis Berry Coulis and a dark chocolate mousse boudoir biscuit. Dessert was paired with the with something elegant and classic Boschendal Brut Rose Method Cap Classique. This sparkling wine delivered a pronounced fruit structure which was complimented by a seductive brisk sparkle.
