The first chapter, the “Essentials of Food & Wine Pairing,” delves into the combination of primary flavors and responsibly produced wines.
Vivant expands beyond wine-focused experiences with an exclusive series dedicated to the art of food and wine pairing. The platform will release experiences in this new category on a regular basis, starting today with an essential introduction to the magic of pairings.
The “Essentials of Food & Wine Pairing” experience focuses on the key pillars for matching sustainable cuvées with different flavors. The experience presents the six primary taste sensations—salty, sour, bitter, umami, fat and sweet— and combines them with emblematic styles of wines (sweet and dry whites, bold and light reds, etc.).
Vivant’s expert Wine Advisors guide participants through key learnings and misconceptions about cooking and pairing. During the 35-minute live session, participants taste wines from Vivant partner producers in Bordeaux, Burgundy and the Loire. Because effective learning comes through practice, this new format includes a list of do-it-yourself pairings for participants.
Throughout the experience, participants awaken their senses and taste some of the world’s best responsibly made wines, such as Isabelle et Denis Pommier’s Petit Chablis Hautérivien 2018 and Château Haut-Bages Libéral’s Pauillac 2016. The Essentials of Food & Wine Tasting Kit is available for purchase on VIVANT at the price of €80 / $78 / £73 / HK$603 / SGD119.
