The Story behind Michael’s Paella Recipe Journey

Boschendal white wine winemaker, Michael Langenhoven, says that this recipe reminds him of holidays and long, laid-back days at the coast.  “If I had to choose one dish that really brings the Boschendal 1685 Chenin Blanc to life, it would be this paella. The vibrant fruit and minerality of the wine complement the fresh flavours of the sea excellently, and the bright acidity cuts through the richness of the cream and butter. Just add good company and preferably a view of the ocean, and you have the makings of an unforgettable lunch or dinner.”
