The duo shared the dish over a selection of Delicata wines, comparing notes, each of them savouring the combination of the Vitello Tonnato, a dish served regularly at Taro, & Delicata’s range of Medina wines. Mr Meekers wrote a piece on the tasting in his journal, which can be found on the Delicata winery website.
