Zuma is located in the Dubai international financial centre at the heart of the city and in the vicinity of the world’s tallest building, the Burj Khalifa. Following the japanese izakaya style of dining, food is served to share. The dishes keep being brought to the table creating an informal yet sophisticated style of eating and drinking, with a contemporary twist.

“I was very impressed by the quality of Barboursville wines and how well they worked with the cuisine of Zuma, particularly the Viognier 2013 with its superb flavor profile and freshness. I’m very much looking forward to having the Barboursville wines represented on my wine list at Zuma Dubai.”

A blind tasting is a great idea: it makes a lunch more dynamic and allows you to understand how a grape variety and style can change slightly from one terroir to another.
