Croatia Wines vs Haskell Wines - Food & Wine Pairing Event Par Excellence

2 June 2021  -  Basewent, Matija Lesković,

Tired of not being able to travel? So are we! That’s why we've brought a little bit of the exotic Croatian lifestyle to the luscious Cape Winelands for an ultimate face-off.

This is a once off event where we will be pairing the best of Croatian wine and cuisine with some of the flagship wines of Haskell Vineyards and their creatively designed meals.

The evening will be led by Croatian born oenologist Matija Leskovic and the founder of Basewent Stellenbosch wine masterclass, together with the winemaker of Haskell Vineyards, Rudolph Steenkamp. Together they will guide you through the magical evening of pairings and enlighten you on some of the wine world’s history and old folk’s tales.

You will be served a five-course array of meals carefully paired with both white and red wine varieties, of which some of the courses will include a horizontal pairing between the Croatian cultivar and Haskell Vineyards cultivar. This will allow your inner wine connoisseur to come out and play and to really challenge yourself with some new worldly tastes. The meals will consist of an array of fish, red meat, mushroom risotto and some naughty dark chocolate.

The evening is a once-off event and will be held at the Haskell Vineyards Longtable Restaurant.

Time: Arrive 18:00 for 18:30 – 21:30.
Date: 3rd of June 2021.
Price per person: R795
