Nestled in northern Italy, the lush vines of Franz Haas winery have been carefully nurtured by seven generations of the Haas family since 1880. Spanning across altitudes of 240 to 1,150 metres above sea level, the vineyards are among the highest in Europe and produce quality wines expressing the nuances of varying microclimates and soil.
On 11 September 2019, savour a selection of Franz Haas wines and a five-course dinner at Zafferano. The dinner is hosted by Matthew McFetridge, Asia-Pacific Brand Manager of the winery.
Highlights of the evening include pan-seared Hokkaido scallops, served with roasted cauliflower and scampi ‘cacciucco’, and accompanied by a vivacious Gewürztraminer 2016, offering a deep bouquet of complex aromas such as lychee, orange peel, cloves, nutmeg and rose. Guests will also be delighted with the succulent secondi of charcoal-grilled Black Angus beef tenderloin MBS 2+ served with sunchoke, ‘chanterelle’ mushrooms and rosemary jus, paired with the fresh and lively Pinot Nero 2016, the winery’s flagship red varietal.
The Franz Haas wine dinner is available at Zafferano on 11 September 2019 at 7pm at $138++ per person and an early bird price of $118++ per person.
