The Tasting

This bold and Spicy grape is the perfect accompaniment to BBQ, and we’ll be enjoying prime beef brisket from The Matter Farm. Be sure to order in advance as they literally spoke it to order.

Zinfandel, Primativo and White Zinfandel are all connected, yet taste wildly different… or do they? Join us we look at the history of how these three distinctive styles came to become national icons. 

1. Kenwood Zinfandel, USA (119 AED). Alternative bottle: Any Zinfandel (Red) from the USA.

2. Sasseo Primitivo, Italy (105 AED). Alternative bottle. Any Primitivo from Italy

3. Fetzer White Zinfandel (65 AED). Alternative bottle: Any White Zinfandel (which is actually a rosé) from the USA

All the grapes have been sourced from MMI in Dubai and Spinneys in Abu Dhabi, who are offering a 10% discount off bubbles, grapes & spirits when you show this email in-store. However, if you’re already well-stocked, just grab a similar bottle (suggestions below), such as the same grape variety, and join in!
