Gastronomy: Good wine is part of good cuisine!

Following the selection of chef Kim Kevin de Dood and his team, representatives of GIE Luxembourg @ EXPO 2020 DUBAI, the Horesca, the Wine Institute (Institut viti-vinicole) and the Luxembourg Hotel and Tourism School (École d’Hôtellerie et de Tourisme du Luxembourg EHTL) have presented the wines and crémants selected for the restaurant «Schengen Lounge» at the Luxembourg pavilion at the EXPO 2020 DUBAI.

In honor of the diversity of the Moselle grape varieties and using a blind tasting, five wines and one crémant were chosen from around a hundred wines and crémants, presented by some 30 winemakers.

The selected wines and crémant are:

  • Auxerrois 2018, Domaine Thill
  • Pinot Blanc 2018 Molaris, Clos « Mon Vieux Moulin» – DUHR-Frères
  • Pinot Gris 2018 Puits d’Or, Domaine Madame Aly Duhr
  • Riesling 2018 Ahn Palmberg, Caves Berna
  • Pinot Noir 2017, Domaine viticole Krier-Bisenius
  • Crémant Cuvée Spéciale Blanc de Noirs, Pundel Vins Purs

Each of these wines served at the restaurant “Schengen Lounge” at the Luxembourg pavilion will promote the know-how and passion of Luxembourg winegrowers, in combination with the promotion of a culinary art specific to the country, at Expo 2020 Dubai.

The aim of the tasting was to select wines that perfectly match the characteristics of modern and inventive cuisine, such as that proposed by chef Kim Kevin de Dood and his team.

Taste the wines in Luxembourg or at Expo 2020 Dubai, which will start on 20 October 2020 and last until 10 April 2021.
