HQ’s 2019 Fine Wining line-up announced: Join them for their 1st event on 6 Feb in partnership with Haute Cabriere

by Karisa

Juicy steak dinner?  Good.  Wine pairing with fine wines?  Good.  An evening out in a sexy environment?  Good… You see, there are many good reasons to join HQ for their 2019 Fine Wining Series. 😉

Kicking off on Wed, 6 February 2019, the HQ team has partnered with Haute Cabriere who will be pairing some of their most beautiful wines with HQ’s signature salad, steak & chips menu (but with added deliciousness in the form of a specially crafted aperitif & dessert).

Resident entertainer, Ricky Botsis, will be setting the mood with his jazzy sounds and the evening is set to be a fun exploration of perhaps a couple of wines you’ve never tried before…  And all this for only R295 pp! (including welcome drinks & canapés on arrival)

This is what the menu looks like:

  • Aperitif:  Pulled Pork Crostini with Marinated Cucumber & crispy Crispy Crackling.
    Paired with:  Pierre Jourdan Brut MCC NV
  • Starter:  A crisp salad of Cos and Iceberg leaves, toasted pine nuts, parmesan shavings and dressed with a Dijon mustard vinaigrette.
    Paired with:  Haute Cabrière Chardonnay Pinot Noir 2018
  • Main:  250g Sirloin wet aged for 32 days and grilled perfectly medium-rare, served with skinny fries & Café de Paris Butter.
    Paired with: Haute Cabrière Pinot Noir 2015
    OR Portabella mushrooms stuffed with a rich Duxelle, gratinated with parmesan cheese and served with skinny fries & Café de Paris Butter.
    Paired with:  Haute Cabrière Pinot Noir Reserve 2015
  • Dessert:  Vanilla & Orange Sponge Crème Patisserie with Pistachio Turkish Delight Ice Cream.
    Paired with:  Pierre Jourdan Ratafia NV

Bookings are essential because seats are limited.  So if you don’t want to miss out – give them a call on 021 424 6373 or email info@hqrestaurant.co.za now.

If, however, you can’t make the 6th of Feb – don’t stress.  There are still a further 9 Fine Wining events to look forward to this year.  This is what the 2019 line-up looks like:

Those are some really nice wines coming your way…
