For Sydney-siders curious about how music is best paired with a glass of wine, look no further than Vino & Violins – an evening of sensory delights presented by Peter Lehmann Wines. Held during Good Food Month this year, Vino & Violins offered food, wine and music lovers the opportunity to take their senses on a unique journey and discover how to match their favourite tipples and tunes.
Hosted by Peter Lehmann Wines and our resident wine expert Malcolm Stopp, Vino & Violins treated guests to a delicious three-course menu created by our acclaimed chef Ross Lusted from The Bridge Room, paired with our award-winning Masters series wines. World-famous violinists Aiko Goto and Thibaud Pavlovic-Hobba from the Australian Chamber Orchestra brought the wines to life, by matching pieces of music to the characteristics they felt best express each wine, enhancing flavour, body and style.
Beginning with 2013 Sparkling Cuvée and 2018 Portrait Grenache Rosé upon arrival with canapés, the pairings included:
1) 2013 Eden Valley Wigan Riesling
Music: LECLAIR Sonatas for two violins Op. 3 No. 2, 1st movement in A major
