Hippo Rising: A Fine Wine Spectacle

Hippo Rising: A Fine Wine Spectacle

Step back into elevated dining and raise a glass to our win at the Wine Spectator Awards with a wine pairing masterclass hosted by Head Sommelier, Florent Souche.

Following the success of our recent Hippopotamus Rising: Pop-Up Degustation dinner, we decided to raise the curtain for a second act, you asked and we delivered. This time, we’re letting wine take centre stage.

In honour of our recent award win (did we mention our Best of Award of Excellence for the second year running? *wink*) Hippo is uncorking some very special vintages. Head Sommelier Florent Souche and Executive Chef Jiwon Do have matched the greatest of their respective culinary realms. Florent will pour a flight of eight wines, masterfully paired with local delicacies from seafood to truffles to cheeses. Sip, savour and learn.

  • $129 per person, includes eight wine tastings each paired with light food match
  • Masterclass hosted by Florent Souche, explaining each wine’s significance and how to match varietals with complementary flavours
  • Sittings:
    • Friday 14th August 8.30pm
    • Saturday, 15th August 8.30pm

Peruse our menu.
