Nobu Cape Town announces an exclusive programme of exquisite dining events for 2014.
Every alternate month, the restaurant will feature a fine Cap Classique producer and their sparkling wines, pairing them in an evening of fabulous bubbles and flavours in the Nobu Lounge. In the months in-between, some of the country’s most iconic wineries and winemakers will be conducting ‘Vertical Masterclasses’ going back over several years, each wine paired with the very finest cuisine Nobu restaurant has to offer.
Assisting in the pairing and service of both events will be Nobu’s wine steward, Tinashe Nyamudoka. Hosted by charismatic MC and One&Only Cape Town’s brand ambassador Aubrey Ngcungama, Head Sushi Chef Keke Itohand Head Chef Dil Tamang will combine to offer evenings of exceptional quality, flavours and flair.
The Nobu Methode Cap Classiques Wine & Dine evenings will commence on 5 February. The von Arnims of Haute Cabrière maintain the French tradition of producing their MCCs under the founder’s name, in this case, Pierre Jourdan. Bottle-fermented and now left for an extended ageing period on the lees, this range of fine wines includes a Brut Sauvage.
On 2 April, another family winery, the House of Krone, will be showcasing its range of bubbles from the cool inland region of Tulbagh.
On 3 June, Pieter Ferreira of Graham Beck Wines will showcase this well known South African MCC. The line-up will include the Cuvée Clive, along with the various different vintage and non-vintage offerings.
On 6 August, another family-owned winery will take centre stage, Jeff Grier of Villiera Wines. His MCCs range from the light Starlight up to the cuvée of Monro.
On the 21 May, Miles Mossop from Tokara Wines will showcase his range of award-winning Sauvignon Blancs.
On 2 July, the hotel’s winter event and one of the highlights of the year will be the Cape’s foremost Bordeaux blend producers, De Toren Private Cellar.
On 3 September, the evening will focus on Pinot Noir and Hamilton Russell Vineyards. Anthony Hamilton Russell and Hannes Storm have been defining and setting the bar for Pinot Noir for the past 30 years.
On 5 November, the final event of the year is a reminder that summer has returned when Constantia Uitsig Wine Estate focus on Chardonnay
