Penina Hotel & Golf Resort is delighted to invite you to an evening of delicious food and accompanying fine wine. Held in our luxurious Le Grill restaurant, home of first-class dining at Penina, you'll be treated to five amazing courses, each of which is complemented by a carefully selected wine provided by Casa Agrícola Roboredo Madeira. An experienced oenologist will also be on hand to guide you through your culinary journey. We advise booking in advance to avoid disappointment.
Fresh Seafood and Other Culinary Delights
Having held two very successful wine pairing dinners in 2014, one in May and one in July, we wanted to get 2015 underway with another evening of some of the Algarve's best cuisine. The menu we've created encapsulates both the heritage of the region and Penina's five-star service. As you might expect with the fishing industry heritage in the Algarve, there is plenty of fish on the menu. The amuse bouche consists of sushi maki and salmon caviar, the second course is prawn and mushroom fettucini, while the third is tender roasted loin of monkfish. Also on the menu is Portuguese style roasted beef, and hazelnut and almond tort.
A Wine Tasting Journey
While you are enjoying each of these sumptuous courses, an expert oenologist will be guiding you through the accompanying wines. While there are basic rules everyone can follow for pairing food and wine, it takes a keen palate and lots of experience to successfully choose a wine that complement each individual flavour in your meal. Each subtle note in a top quality wine has its own ideal accompaniment, and the oenologist will be on hand to guide you through the tasting process, adding an extra level of delight to an evening of good food.
The five wines served will be from Casa Agrícola Roboredo Madeira, who have been producing excellent wine in the north of Portugal since 1966. Each wine has its own distinct tasting notes, from the CARM Branco, with its floral aroma and light citrus notes, to the CARM Reserva Tinto, which has an intense and fresh liquorice flavour.
