NEWS: Umami Tasting at Grande Provence

Dear Boozy Friends, do I have some amazing news today. You can now awaken your senses with a brand new umami tasting at Grande Provence in Franschhoek.

Come and experience an exciting savoury twist to exploring wine in the Franschhoek valley with the all new Umami tasting at The Bistro at Grande Provence.

Umami, a pleasant savoury taste considered the 5th basic taste after sweet, sour, salty and bitter, melds beautifully with Grande Provence wines. The Umami wine tasting pairs three wines with flavourful savoury morsels.

Guests can look forward to the vibrant and fruit driven Grande Provence Sauvignon Blanc; the Grande Provence Shiraz, with its well-integrated oak and soft tannins; and the Angels Tears Muscato Chenin Blanc, adding a sweet sensation to the mix with upfront notes of honey infused with spices and tropical flavours.

Umami flavours of dukka, balsamic vinegars and syrup
Lime balsamic syrup, balsamic & olive oil and Dukkah, a flavourful Middle Eastern spice and nut mixture is all available at the Bistro at Grande Provence.

Embark on a sensory adventure by paring these wines with tangy cheese & lime balsamic syrup, balsamic & olive oil and gourmet caramel popcorn. For added texture and a piquant taste, Dukkah, a flavourful Middle Eastern spice and nut mixture, takes the Umami pairing up a notch when added to the olive oil and balsamic syrup.

The Umami tasting is available daily from 11h00 till 18h00 at R95 per pairing at The Bistro at Grande Provence.

Visitors to Grande Provence can discover & purchase the new range of Grande Provence olive oil and balsamic syrups. The range includes extra virgin olive oil, balsamic olive oil salad dressing, pomegranate, lime and fig balsamic syrup & freshly-made Dukkah.  

The Bistro at Grande Provence is a relaxed alternative to more formal Franschhoek dining. To book your table, call Tel: (021) 876 8600 or email
