If you have stayed with Powder N Shine before you will know that we appreciate good wines to match our delicious food which has been carefully prepared by our wonderful chefs! Our chalet hosts and chefs all sat down yesterday and had a wonderful wine tasting and training session with Le Verre Gourmand, our supplier.
For those of you not in the know. During your stay there will be complimentary house wines which this year are from France. The white wine is called Two Birds One Stone 2017 which combines the colombard & Ugni Black grapes. The red wine is Domain Montplo Rouge 2017 a carignan grape with blackcurrant on the nose and palate. These wines will be on offer at any time from dawn til dusk!
A glass of something bubbly is then offered to all guests with canapes to start the first evening off before sitting down for supper where we pair the wines to accompany the meal being served by our talented chefs each evening. Click here to learn more about our cuisine.
Powder N Shine have sourced some fantastic pairing wines this year from across the World and we hope you enjoy and appreciate the time and energy that has gone into choosing these great wines. The wines are from different regions of France, such as the Loire Valley, Burgundy region, Languedoc-Rousillon and Rhone Valley. There are also wines from Spain, Italy and a South African wine which is a beautiful Shiraz from the Western Cape described as a big hearted, warming wine with hints of black pepper and spice.
Fancy upgrading your wines to our Premium selection during your stay, please do let a member of the team know and they would be very happy to arrange this for you. To give you something too whet your appetite one of the premium wines is a Chardonnay – Domaine Berthelemot Meursault 2016 from the Burgundy region, described as rich and full-bodied wine with fantastic persistence, a great accompaniment to a traditional French dish or try it alone to savour the taste!
If wine is not your thing, we have a special Gin on offer and Laurent Perrier Champagne for you to enjoy during your stay too…Talk to the lovely Rachael, our Concierge Manager and we can ensure we have plenty in stock for your stay with us.
