Sitting around a table with loved ones enjoying a meal is one of life’s most valued experiences. We eat, we drink, we chat, we connect.

Alto Wines have been a part of this tradition for 100 years as they celebrate a century of winemaking this year. 

Elevate your dining experience with Alto Wines

As foodies, creating memorable moments that bring people together around a table is what we live for. So, how can you take your dinner party to the next level?

Crush and Alto Wines have teamed up with chef Jacques Erasmus of Hemelhuijs to create a series of five delicious recipes, each matched with an Alto wine, designed to help you push your culinary boundaries. We start off the series with this beautiful beef carpaccio, which is enjoyed with Alto’s Cabernet Sauvignon.

Create a meal with wow factor, serve it with a bottle of great Alto wine and still have time to spend with friends - it’s the ideal way to entertain.

Cook with confidence

This beef carpaccio dish is one that you’ll master and then make again and again. Most of the prep for the dish can be done ahead of time, so slicing and plating is easy - the more rustic the better. The clincher will be adding those crispy hand-cut shoestring rosemary fries right at the end for crunch.

As chef Jacques told us, “This is such a classic cafe dish and one of my favourite things to eat. As a dish for serving a crowd, it’s a winner - it’s super simple, quick to prepare and is always a hit with meat-eating guests”.

Open a bottle of Alto Cabernet Sauvignon while you cook

Alto Cabernet Sauvignon is the perfect match for this beef dish. The meaty flavour of raw beef and the herbal notes of the rosemary potatoes complement the beautiful body of this wine.

You’ll notice that this dark intense plum red wine has aromas of dark fruit, cedar wood and spice with dark chocolate and a hint of minerals. It has a deep, rich and intense palate with a great balance between structure and finesse and fine-grained tannins.
