Ar­ti­sanal Salt and Wine Pair­ings in South Africa

Taste & Travel - - Dispatches -

Did you know that there are at least 161 dif­fer­ent types and va­ri­eties of salt? Chef Craig Cor­mack of South Africa’s Fleur du Cap Wines is so fas­ci­nated by the di­ver­sity of salt he’s launched a unique salt tast­ing ex­pe­ri­ence fea­tur­ing a col­lec­tion of salts from around the world. Lo­cated on the out­skirts of the historic town of Stel­len­bosch, Fleur du Cap’s un­der­ground wine cel­lar Die Bergkelder was cre­ated in 1968 and de­signed to keep wine at a con­stant tem­per­a­ture, even in the in­tense African heat. It has grown to be­come one of South Africa’s most pres­ti­gious wine cel­lars. Pair­ing din­ners hosted by salt afi­cionado Chef Craig Cor­mack of­fer vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to taste dif­fer­ent salts from around the world and dis­cover the har­mony of pair­ings with the win­ery’s nat­u­rally crafted wines such as the award-win­ning, lightly-wooded Fleur du Cap Chardon­nay. www.fleur­d­u­
