The award winning range of Fleur du Cap Unfiltered wines are is a natural fit for the artisanal salt lunch or dinner menus. With his collection of more than 130 salts from all over the world, Chef Craig’s knowledge of salt in cooking coupled with his mastery of the art of matching salt with wine, offers ways of unlocking the expression of the wine to its fullest potential, resulting in an enriched culinary experience.

“One of the challenges when pairing salt and wine is to create food that will enhance the wine without dominating it. The natural process of crafting Fleur du Cap wines by allowing the style inherent in the grapes to guide the winemaking team, works particularly well with unrefined, artisanal salts, reverting back to nature in both the food and the wines,” is his take on these wine and salt pairing experiences.
