Lunch, Wine o’clock & Dinner

Kick-off #SauvBlanc Day with a long Friday lunch. Get your colleagues together and head out to a fancy restaurant to celebrate in style. Wine o’clock officially kicks-off at 4pm, so lunch until then or rally more colleagues and friends up to toast this special day. Invite a crowd over for a savvy tasting that evening accompanied by some pretty special #SauvBlanc pairings and recipes.

Perfect Pairings


#SauvBlanc calls for summer BBQs, seafood and zesty flavours. Here are some of our favourite pairings and recipes:

  1. Cherry tomato, basil and goats cheese canapé by What Katie Ate
  2. BBQ prawns by Nadia Lim
  3. Sauvignon Blanc Sorbet by Life Currents
