    EIGHT COURSE FRENCH FOOD AND FRENCH WINE PAIRED DINNER AT ZIO LA FAMIGLIA

    When the French Wine Guy met the South African Food Guy, it was a marriage made in heaven. The happy union has produced a Tour de France, the pairing of exceptional French wines with the finest of local cuisine.

    Executive Chef at Hyde Park’s popular Italian bistro, Zio la Famiglia, Jonothan Nel and Hervé Delabesse, general manager at specialist wine importer, Premier Cru Wines, have put together an expansive degustation menu.

    Said Delabesse: “I selected eight excellent wines from different regions of France, each true to their unique terroir. These days, with the Euro/Rand exchange rate, international travel is limited to a lucky few.

    “Our Tour de France is designed to allow our guests to travel without moving, and to journey through French winelands in a delicious way.”

    Delabesse educates wine enthusiasts on what makes French wines different from those produced in South Africa, or other parts of the world.
