Not a Slow Food Mother City event, but one we feel fits the bill, and in which you may be interested! Saltare is a boutique winery in Stellenbosch which creates wines using biodynamic principles. They are also pledged to keeping the production of their wines carbon neutral. There is more information available on their website.
Dear friends, Heleen and Carla will present their first Saltare Food & Wine Pairing of 2010 on Saturday March the 6th at the Oude Libertas Stellenbosch Fresh Goods Market. The pairing will start at 10:30.
Heleen has put together five seasonal dishes to go with each of the five wines that will be presented. Both Heleen and Carla are fascinated by how certain tastes and textures in the food are enhanced by wine and vice versa.
The five wines that will be tasted are:
Saltare MCC Crémant 2007
Saltare MCC Brut 2007
Saltare Chenin blanc 2008
Saltare Syrah 2006
Saltare Specialis 2006 (red blend)
Please join us by sending an email to email@example.com or call 021 883 9568. Tickets cost R80 per person; we can accommodate twenty people. Heleen’s beautiful cookbooks will also be available for sale.
We look forward to sharing our wines and Heleen’s wonderful dishes with you. You’re also welcome to visit our stand at the SFGM on Saturdays.
Carla & Christoff
