After seeing the feedback of our beloved wine connoisseurs and gastronomes we are back with another wine pairing dinner. This time, with Grand Maître.
On Friday 4th December at 20:00hrs, Marsovin in collaboration with The Xara Palace Relais & Châteaux will be hosting an exclusive Grand Maître wine dinner event at the acclaimed Michelin Star restaurant – The de Mondion. The concept behind the event is to compare cellar aged Grand Maître vintages through a vertical tasting, in order to experience how each of these wines has a different story to relate, a story which reveals their journey from vine to barrel to bottle.
The Grand Maître vintages selected, namely 2018, 2014, 2010 & 2007, were carefully matched to an exquisite 5 course dinner prepared by Michelin Star Chef de Cuisine Kevin Bonello and his brigade. For this special occasion Marsovin has released large format bottles – vintage 2007 in Jeroboam (3 litre) and Magnum (1.5 litre) for the 2010 and 2014. All Grand Maître wines will be brought in directly from the Marsovin Cellars wine bank where they have been laid to rest, age and mature in a perfect storage environment.
Grand Maître is today regarded as Malta’s flagship red wine with a limited annual production being highly sought after for its quality, sustained ageing potential and collectable value. A premium blend of Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc is what makes Grand Maître. The wine is produced from hand-picked grapes harvested from the privately owned estate – Għajn Riħana, situated at the foothills between Bidnija and Wardija.
The price for the event is €100 per person. For more information and bookings kindly contact Nico at The de Mondion restaurant by email on or mobile 79800473.
