Mein Wein by Mathias

‘MEIN WEIN by Mathias’ is our regular wine event that so far has been a great success. This Sunday we present a very special edition of it as we welcome not one, but five different wineries to Restaurant Le Faubourg to share their wines and wisdom with us and our guests.

Curated as always by Sofitel Kurfürstendamm’s own sommelier Mathias Brandweiner, there is a very interesting selection to look forward to and Mathias is looking forward to seeing people experience and learn more about the wines he has chosen.

The featured wines are as follows:

Relats Gran Reserva, Brut Nature 2010 from Recaredo Winery (Spain)

Grüner Veltliner Schlossberg 2013 from Fritsch Winery (Austria)

Terrano IGT 2009 from Kante Winery (Italy)

Bajondillo 2013 from Jiménez Landi Winery (Spain)

Moscato Civranetta DOC Demi Sec from Fidora Winery (Italy)

‘MEIN WEIN by Mathias’ gives guests the chance to share Mathias’ favourite wines and to meet the winemakers. “The reason I created the event was to introduce our guests to the art of drinking wine,” says Mathias. “My selections will often be wines they may not know and wines that are not widely available, so they will have a more exclusive experience.” As head sommelier, Mathias has really made his mark on our wine list with more than 150 individually selected wines now in our collection. Mathias has built good relationships with winemakers and has many great producers in his ‘little black book’ of wine industry contacts.

Chef de Cuisine Felix has created a specific menu to suit the wines and the 5 different courses are each carefully designed to best accompany Mathias’s selection of wines. Highlights of the menu include the ceviche of beef with parsley, mushrooms, and fennel, prawn salad with peach, pancetta and chanterelle mushrooms and the medium braised 24 hour beef with spinach, port vine, shallots, garden radish, and potato.
