“Wine is the only artwork you can drink.” Luis Fernando Olaverri

The pairing of food and wine takes centre stage at The Palazzo at Montecasino for one elegant, exclusive event each month as a selection of fine wines from a leading wine estate are paired with a multi-course menu, presented by Tsogo Sun’s group sommelier, Miguel Chan, and The Palazzo’s executive chef, Gareth Jordaan.

Andrew Hosking, Tsogo Sun Hotels Operations Director, Gauteng Northern Central region, says the wine evenings bring together “the perfect combination of elements for which Tsogo Sun is renowned – excellent wines, world-class cuisine, and in-depth knowledge and understanding of both – for a very special evening for wine lovers, in the exquisite setting of The Palazzo’s Rosa.”

On Thursday 30 May, the Palazzo Wine Evening Dinner will feature Warwick Wine Estate, which is based in Stellenbosch on the slopes of Simonsberg.  The farm is renowned for its range of wines, focusing on premium Bordeaux varieties.  A variety of their wines will be paired with a five course dinner, and Cellarmaster JD Pretorius will join Miguel Chan in the presentation.  The dinner will end with three exclusive Grand Cru coffees – Lungo from Guatemala, Espresso from Brazil and Ristretto from India.

Award-winning Miguel Chan celebrates 10 years with Tsogo Sun in July this year, where he has ensured the exceptionally high wine standards for Tsogo Sun hotels, working with food & beverage teams to create a unique and appealing dining experience, and developing a team of wine stewards to become future sommeliers.

The Palazzo Warwick Wine Estate evening on 30 May is priced at R625 per person.  To book, call 011-510 3000 and ask for Danielle Peters or email
