  • Another popular plate is the Venison Carpaccio, which features thinly sliced, raw venison topped with salty parmesan shavings, tart caper berries, and a rich balsamic reduction. This dish is recommended with the Zorgvliet Merlot.
  • For a vegetarian option, the Kataifi Ball Salad is a must-try. It features crispy goats’ cheese Kataifi balls, a vibrant pea puree, fresh greens, and crunchy chickpeas. The salad is drizzled with a sweet and spicy honey dressing and goes well with the Zorgvliet Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc.
  • If seafood is more your thing, the Salmon Poke Bowl is a fantastic choice. It includes sushi rice, edamame beans, and fresh radish, topped with Norwegian salmon and a zingy ginger and soy sauce. Pair it with the Zorgvliet Cabernet Franc Rosé for a perfect match.
