An evening of class by the glass at the Palazzo hotel

The Palazzo at Montecasino in conjunction with Iona will host an exclusive wine pairing evening on the evening of 14 May. This is the second in what is billed to be a host of delightful wine pairing evenings at Rosa, the Palazzo hotel’s all-new elegant function venue, and at only R600 per person inclusive of a five-course dinner prepared by award-winning Palazzo executive chef Gerard Vingerling, it’s a not-to-be-missed experience.

Established in 1997 by Andrew Gunn in the Elgin Valley, Iona quickly rose to fame amongst the world’s leading wine writers and sommeliers who praised the world-class quality and consistency of the wines.

Book now and enjoy three vintages each of Iona’s award-winning Chardonnay and Pinot Noir wines, expertly selected by Andrew and Rozy Gunn together with Tsogo Sun Group’s Sommelier Miguel Chan, and paired per course by Chef Gerard.
