The Slovak wine Dunaj will appear on the menu of the prestigious restaurant l’Epuisette, with a Michelin star, in Marseille.

Karine Blanc who cooperates with chief cooks of the best Michelin restaurants in Provence was charmed by Slovak wine so much that she created a unique starter for this wine – pumpkin custard with mushrooms. The starter together with wine will be on the menu starting in December.

Foreign wines beat local wines only rarely. When choosing foreign wine, French restaurants are very picky. They prefer interesting wines from small wineries.

Wines are chosen by a degustation committee of experts and it is led by Jean Daniel Angibaud from Bordeaux, holder of several prestigious global prizes.

“When I have the possibility I like to let experts taste wine from Slovenské Vinice ,” said J.D. Angibaud, as quoted by the SITA newswire. Thanks to the one tasting, Slovak wine will get into a Marseille restaurant.

News in gastronomy spreads fast and two top restaurants in Strasbourg want to taste wines from Slovenské Vinice (Slovak Vineyards) as well – Buereiheisel with two Michelin stars and Oenosphere.

The wine that charmed French experts originated in the southern Slovak vineyard area, Svodín village, and belongs to the autumn collection of the Slovenské Vinice brand. Dunaj is a dry red wine with a piercing smell of dark berry fruit and has a spicy, fruity taste.

“We are proud that our wines are appreciated abroad, specifically in those restaurants with Michelin stars,” said Peter Havrilák, the manager of Slovenské Vinice, as cited by SITA.
