CORNELIUS

CORNELIUS

Katlavika

Inspired by the weather of the day, Cornelius serves its famous Meteorological Menu of exquisite seafood and side dishes, prepared using innovative culinary techniques and with a genuine passion for the products of the sea. In summer, guests can enjoy lighter dishes outside on the pier; when the weather is less clement, candles and the replace create a cozy atmosphere indoors and food with stronger flavors is served.

Among the wines, I was enchanted by the way Aristos Sauvignon 1999 had developed and by the excitement of talented sommeliers for this mysterious wine.

“This was an amazing way to share knowledge among not just sommeliers but also people around in the industry. if I am going to pick out a special wine its hard. There was a lot of aromatic grape varieties that fooled me blindly.”

VINKKELI

VINKKELI

Helsinki

The three passionate owners share more than ten years’ history in Helsinki’s legendary restaurants. Their point of view is that classic cuisine, high quality ingredients and seasonal thinking are a starting point for a festive dinner, or just a quick lunch or supper. The name Vinkkeli (point of view or corner in Finnish) refers to the restaurant’s location in a historic corner building, but it also conveys the young owners’ idea of a classic, holistic restaurant experience at a particular intersection of place and time.

“I was amazed by the differences between the vintages of Tenuta Ca’ Bolani’s Aquilis, and by the freshness and complexity of the wines. This eye-opening vertical tasting proved that Sauvignons from Friuli are world-class and have excellent aging potential.”

Stockholm

We seek inspiration for our metropolitan cuisine in our immediate surroundings and historic or local traditions, but also new gastronomic phenomena that we are surrounded by everyday. Modern cooking techniques mixed with classic – both Swedish and international – methods are used to extract the maximum gastronomic results from each of our ingredients. This is the fourth phase: Stockholm Multi- Technique.

“I thought that Castello del Poggio’s Brachetto was very interesting. It had a really special mouthfeel: sweet, fruity and also a bit tannic. This is a wine I could definitely work with in our restaurant.”.

PALAIS COBURG

PALAIS COBURG

Vienna

Creative interpretations of classic dishes and exceptionally composed innovative dishes, as well as the subtly devised interaction of food and wine, are the main features in the gourmet restaurant at the Palais Coburg. In 2014, the restaurant was awarded two Michelin stars, 3 Gault Millau toques, and Chef Nickol was named Gault Millau Austrian Chef of Year. There are more than 5000 wines on the list to accompany his delicious creations.

 

“The menu had been selected in coordination with the wines and it was very exciting to try the more mature Sauvignon Blancs. It was nice to hear the different opinions of the various Sommeliers about the wines themselves as well as the combination with the food”.

NOBU BERKELEY ST

London

The critically acclaimed Nobu Berkeley st is now one of London’s most fashionable restaurants and has also been the venue for some of the capital’s most high profile parties. Nobu Matsuhisa and executive chef Mark Edwards have created a menu that includes the Nobu classic dishes, but with many new items, some of which are cooked in a Japanese wood-burning oven.

 

“Fusion cuisine is a truly unique experience, with an explosion of different flavours. Matching back vintages of Sauvignon Blanc from Tenuta Ca’Bolani with it perfectly enhanced this gastronomic journey.”

“The Sauvignons from Ca’ Bolani proved the perfect midpoint between those from Sancerre and New Zealand and showed impressive ageing potential, opening the sommeliers’ eyes to Italian Sauvignon.”
