I’m in LOVE with this grilled octopus salad with garden vegetables ! The vinaigrette is perfect, the octopus is tender and tasty, the recipe is easy to make … We open the white wine, we remove the sandals, we put Bob Marley on and we enjoy the good times!

Our wine stewards suggest

+- 15$ Santa Julia Chardonnay Mountain Blend

An excellent Chardonnay from the Mendoza region of Argentina. Aromas of white fruits, apples and tropical fruits mixed with notes of vanilla and coconut brought by aging in barrels. Unctuous in the mouth, with a nice balance of acidity and a large scale of flavours.


This strong Belgian will offer notes of spices, lemon and flowers that will marry lemon and white wine recipe. The fine effervescence of the beer and its soft drought will leave room for the finesse of the flesh of the octopus.
