mushroom risotto
The Ham family emigrated from Holland in the early 1960’s and established Awapuni Nurseries. In the 1980’s, the family decided to do something to satisfy their passion for horticulture and their love for fine wine: Alpha Domus was created in 1989. The name Alpha Domus comes from the first names of the five founding members of the family:parents Anthonius and Leonarda and sons Paulus, Henrikus and Anthonius. Domus is latin for horse. Since their first wines were released to the market in 1996, the Ham family has been constantly producing stunning exclusively estate-grown wines.

What to drink with... mushroom risotto.

Mushrooms frequently make a wine taste better than it might otherwise appear, maybe something to do with the fungus’s umami – that savoury pleasant flavour.

Given the risotto is quite creamy, a Pinot Noir and its acidity will work well, whether New World or Old World. Whites are supposedly the colour for risottos so try an oaked Chardonnay, or our choice Chenin Blanc Reserve from the Western Cape. Or how about our fruity refreshing rosé from Italy: Castello di Ama Rosato – at a whacking 13% it’s a red in pink clothing.
