Dine in style with some of Sicily’s finest wines

Xara Palace - De Mondion - Donnafugata Pic 14

Post festive season, Infinitely Xara will not be shying away from one of their ultimate passions; wine. Deciding to end the first month of the year on a fabulous note, de Mondion has teamed up with S. Rausi Ltd to host the Donnafugata Wine Event on Friday 29th January at 8pm.

The evening will begin with delightful canapés accompanied by a perfect aperitif grape, ‘Brut 2014’, a bright crisp sparkling wine, awakening your taste buds for the indulgent meal ahead.

Donnafugata has chosen a selection of wines that marry perfectly with de Mondion’s signature fine dining cuisine. They have selected a  ‘Vigna di Gabri 2014’ to couple with Seabass and Candied Lemon filled Ravioli,  followed by Donnafugata’s “Mille e Una Notte” 2010 for the decadent main course of Roasted Fillet Tenderloin.

Finally, dinner ends with the Donnafugata “Ben Ryè” Passito di Pantelleria 2011 with its notes of apricot, peach, dried figs, honey and aromatic herbs together with our Chef’s Caramelised Pear Tart Tatin…provides for a perfect combination to end this gastronomic experience.
