I’m from Joburg, so I wasn’t born with the natural knowledge of what wines go best with which meals (like my friends in Cape Town might be). So, to determine the ultimate wine pairings, I called in a little back up.
Cue the Jozi experts on wine pairings: La Vie en Rose.
Our friends at La Vie en Rose showed us how to tailor your menu to your wine, so that you can get the best out of every bottle. Yes, I was the lucky person who got to taste all of these dishes, and no, I wasn’t sharing that deep fried Toblerone dessert with anyone!
I clearly don’t have a guilty conscience. And I clearly have a thing for desserts. (Remember these epic milkshakes?)
But don’t worry if you’re trying to watch your waistline, La Vie en Rose has equally delicious healthy options that you can dig into. The beautiful garden setting will ensure you feel like you’re far away from the hustle and bustle of the city, but it’s actually just 10 minutes away from Sandton central. The perfect spot to dig into something delish, with a glass of vino in hand.
Excuse me while I start with that Chardonnay and fish combo, and make my way through the list…
