Frank Cornelissen in Praze! Publikováno 27.02.2017

This week we look forward to welcoming a truly special guest in Prague who comes from Sicily - Frank Cornelissen. He is known to all wine fans as the man with the vision to portray the essence of the Etna volcano in the wine bottle. Frank has been instrumental in changing viticulture on the northern slopes of Etna. The area is now appropriately considered one of the world’s Grand Cru terroirs.

There are still seats available on 30 March at the wine dinner at BISTROT 104, andon 31 March at the seven course private wine dinner paired with Frank’s wines at Restaurant La Finestra.

Both evenings are the perfect opportunity to discover the extraordinary works of Frank Cornelissen. 

Nordic Sicilian Wine Dinner at BISTROT 104 

Thursday 30 March, 6:30 PM

Chef Pavol Pavlík recently opened his dream project BISTOT 104 where Nordic inspiration meets Czech modern cuisine based on natural local ingredients. The perfect venue for a gourmet experience with five of Frank Cornelissen’s wines paired with Pavol’s excellent spring menu.

The degustation menu with wine pairing is CZK 1990

Private Wine Dinner in the La Finestra Wine Cellar 

Friday 31 March, 7:00 PM

On the special occasion of having Frank Cornelissen with us in Prague, we will host a private wine dinner in the La Finestra wine cellar. Since Frank spends most of his time between his vineyards and wine cellar, visits are rare. The chef of La Finestra, Tomáš Juřík, has created a seven course tasting menu paired with a line-up of Frank’s most important wines (7 Grand Crus and 2 vintages of Magma), such as never before experienced in the Czech Republic. Due to the exclusivity of the event, the number of guests is limited to 13.

The price of the seven course tasting menu with wines is CZK 4500

Expect the incredible! 

We go live on our Facebook with Frank Cornelissen in the Via del Vino wine shop on 30 March at 16:30. Frank will talk about Grand Cru terroir on Etna while presenting the contents of an exclusive single vineyard, multiple vintage, Grand Cru selection. 20 cases will be available on the market!
