Do you have trouble finding the right wine to pair with sashimi (crudo in Italian)?
Well, orange/ amber wine is the answer (and the new White)!
It’s designed and shaped to complement raw seafood or sashimi, according to some cognoscenti in Japan. However, there’s no rules, so let’s play jazz, and forget about sake, beer and whisky for now!
If you opt for an off-book route to enlightenment, then you should join us for this tasting, which features 6 different organic, orange wines from Georgia, Croatia and Jura (France). You will have have a chance to sip and savor vino by Iago from Georgia – one of the most influential winemakers in the world as of today.
Format: We will be sitting face to face with famous Chef Andy who will demonstrate his technique as a sushi artist and serve us the best Omakase in Hong Kong.
The wine list features a stellar lineup of organic orange wine, which is super rare and hard to find in the world – with only a hundred bottles produced a year – by Iago Winery and Jean Franscois Ganevat who are the trailblazers in the modern natural wine movement.
