If you’re into your wine or would like to explore it a little further than your local bar’s happy hour special, we know of just the event. The Élite Sommelier UAE, a collective of F&B wine professionals, will host a series of unforgettable dinners across the city in collaboration with African + Eastern this October.

Not only will you get to dine at some of Dubai’s top restaurants, you’ll also learn about different grapes from fantastic wineries from around the world. The evening is priced at Dhs800 per person including a set dining menu and wine pairing. Spaces are limited to 10 guests per event so make sure to book ahead to get your spot.
