 Brenaissance Pizza & Wine Pairing

With seven exclusive Brenaissance wines, there’s one for every day of the week depending on your mood and the occasion, and Tom & Hayley Breytenbach have come up with yet another innovative idea with their pizza and wine pairings.  We all know that cheese and wine have always been synonomous and four of these premium Brenaissance wines have now been paired with the Full House Pizza, the distinct flavours of each slice, having been carefully matched to a particular wine to enhance the wining and dining experience.

Worth mentioning is the fact that all the pizzas have exceptionally thin and deliciously crisp bases with a fresh tomato base, and instead of your traditional round shape, here you are treated to rectangular pizzas beautifully presented on a wooden board, and so much easier to eat!

A novel interactive place mat, with full instructions as to how the process works, details names of the wines, pizza slice combinations and the order in which you should proceed with the tastings:

You start with Knight of White – a silky smooth butterscotch and citrus Chardonnay which is paired with a slice of salty Parma ham and pungent Parmesan pizza.  A treat for the taste buds indeed, which firmly sets the standard for the pairings to follow.

Next in line is the Queen of Hearts – a well balanced Merlot with hints of mint and chocolate, paired with a topping of caramelized onion and goats cheese, and without doubt  a perfectly matched combination.  The taste sensation is superb and thank goodness there are two slices to savour as one is definitely not enough!

Not to be outdone by the Queen, the Full House Bordeaux blend, with its dash of petit verdot jus, has been paired together with traditional South African ingredients – biltong, glazed fig and avocado.  This is a delightful combination and tastes as good as it looks with a rocket garnish and fresh tomato base.

Last, but by no means least, comes the Jack of Diamonds – an impressive jet black Shiraz with its spicy berry palate.  A bold wine needs a bold combination of taste and texture, so what could compliment it better than Cajun chicken, spicy chorizo, red onion and mushroom.  This will surely be a winner with those who enjoy fiery flavours.
