The Chinese flavour profile is often summarised by these four flavours: Sour, Sweet, Bitter & Spicy. Though a varied and rich cuisine, wines to match can often be beguiling.
Which is why we are proud to work with Grogger to bring you a supperclub which pairs English Wines with Creative Chinese Cuisine.
Our guest sommeliers of the night, Grogger, will conduct a fun and informative wine pairing experience where they talk guests through specially selected wines alongside the typical Chinese flavour profile. Whilst still largely undiscovered in the wine world their characteristic apple-y, crisp & grassy notes are in fact an exciting and exquisite match to classic Chinese flavours.
Both Grogger & THG will present, describe and host an interactive event surrounding a menu that marries these two worlds, where you will learn about cultural aspects to Chinese food whilst discovering a new palate for wine.
