Umami Tasting, The Bistro at Grande Provence

Exciting new developments at Grand Provence Bistro! Experience a savoury twist to exploring wine in the Franschhoek Valley, with the new Umami Tasting to awaken the senses at The Bistro at Grande Provence. 

Umami  (click on highlighted link) is the pleasant savoury taste considered the 5th basic taste after sweet, sour, salty and bitter, and it marries beautifully with Grande Provence wines. The Umami Wine tasting pairs three estate wines with flavoursome savoury tidbits.

Tasters can look forward to the vibrant and fruit-driven Grande Provence Sauvignon Blanc; the Grande Provence Shiraz with its well-integrated oak and soft tannins, and the Angels Tears Muscato Chenin Blanc, which adds adds a sweet sensation to the mix with upfront notes of honey-infused with spices and tropical flavours.

The Bistro at Grande Provence Umami Tasting invites you to embark on a sensory adventure by paring these wines with tangy cheese & lime balsamic syrup, balsamic & olive oil and gourmet caramel popcorn. For added texture and a piquant taste, Dukkah, a flavourful Middle Eastern spice and nut mixture, takes the Umami pairing up a notch when added to the olive oil and balsamic syrup. (This all sounds completely delicious to me, actually.)

The Umami tasting is available daily from 11h00 till 18h00 at R95 per pairing at The Bistro at Grande Provence.

And there’s more! Visitors to Grande Provence can discover & purchase the new range of Grande Provence olive oil and balsamic syrups. The range includes extra virgin olive oil, balsamic olive oil salad dressing, pomegranate, lime and fig balsamic syrup & freshly-made Dukkah.
