As the cuisine became art and going to the restaurants of modern cuisine a kind of gourmet adventure, many choose to, besides food, offer interesting events and happenings to their guests.
One of the most interesting dinner events has been conceived by the restaurant Enso. Namely, this restaurant that has already become known as cult of modern cuisine, which prepares works of art by using simple and less simple food, decided to couple these works of art with wines, and make a gourmet event once a week. It is a wine evening, which, combined with good tastes, turns into a wine dinner.
The concept of wine dinner is extremely simple. The five courses in the menu get combined with five glasses of wine accompanying food, being selected by a professional sommelier. The price of such a menu with wines is extremely affordable during a wine dinner, even lower than the price of a tasting menu of five courses without wine in regular sales. These hedonistic evenings are always done in cooperation with some wine-house or a distributor of drinks, and it has become a custom to choose domestic wineries, which gives a significance and emphasizes Serbian wine culture, one of the most precious treasures that we own, which has recently started to expand to a great extent. So far, cooperation has been established with the following wineries and distributors: Braća Rajković, Budimir, InVitto, Chichateau, Erdevik, Jacob’s Creek, Aleksandrović, Bikicki and Baltasar winery. Curiosity and one of the most interesting dinners were made in cooperation with the Kraft brewery, when guests had the opportunity to try out the complementary relation of beer and fine dining cuisine.

Before you visit the next wine dinner, here are some information about pairing wine with food:
The basis of pairing food and wine is to create a balance. This involves the creation of such a compound that will be better than individual parts or creating a taste that will give a better experience in harmony than when food or wine are consumed separately. A large number of people are consuming wine through food, which is a completely wrong way of consuming wine (brandy is consumed in such a way). In that case, wine actually serves as flavour corrector or simply a spice, which can give a better or worse taste, depending on the taste of the one who eats the dish. Wine is properly consumed upon swallowing a bite first, and then a sip of wine that should complete the taste of food. This way of wine consumption really requires knowledge of tuning the wine and food, and not to forget a very important thing, if the wine that is well-paired with food, will appeal to everyone, otherwise it will not appeal to anybody.
- As aperitif wines, the most suitable are sparkling wines or roses. Fresh white wine with fruity fragrance, fresh taste and moderate alcohol content can also be served.
- White wines are always served before red.
- First, fresh, lighter wines are served, then full, denser and longer conserved, with more developed bucket.
- During the meal, people usually drink dry wines, not sweet.
