Barre 2 Barre TOASST Wine Pairing

Happy #GlobalWineDay barre babes!

Our co-founder Jessica Anwar is a qualified wine-aficionado, with a Level 3 certification from WSET (for all you wine lovers “in the know”), and she got together with our friends at TOASST, to bring you a unique pairing of barre classes with some of our favourite wines.

Wine glasses and grippy socks at the ready?!?


PAIRING 1: Livestream Barre FLOW gives you a balanced and dynamic workout with increased total-body awareness.
This classic Right Bank blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Malbec is from the famed Thiepont family and same owner as Vieux Château Certan and Le Pin. Coming off a hot vintage in 2018 from clay-limestone terroirs, the dusty warm nose, concentrated cherry, blackberry aromas with herbaceous, mineral, earthy tones, leather forest floor and subtle oak is a treat for Bordeaux lovers. Still youthful with high, grippy tannins, decant a minimum of 60 minutes before your workout and will be ready for drinking once you’re ready to eat!
Additional Pairing Notes:
PAIRING 3: Livestream REST & RESTORE is calming, gentle and harmonius. 
This medium-bodied blend of Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc and bit of Verdelho from leading biodynamic and organic producer Cullen Winery is a guaranteed hit for our New World lovers and a fabulous food pairing wine for all. With a low ABV at 12.9%, it still packs a punch with tropical, melon, lemon curd, grassy aromas and musk from the Semillion with a round richness on the palate, stone fruit minerality, balanced acidity and a satisfying long, creamy finish – perfect after a calming class and recharged body and mind.
Additional Pairing Notes:
Savour this dry white pairing with richer food including seafood, turkey, chicken, pork, rich soups and roasted veggies. Complements fresh creamy goat cheese, young Gruyère or Chaumes. Experiment with different cuisines such as winter crab and citrus salad, lobster mac and cheese, creamy white bean soup with sage, chicken and spinach gnocchi, lemongrass pork grilled skewers or tandoori chicken.
We hope you enjoyed our different view of bringing fitness and fun together with wonderful company and a bit of learning over a good glass of wine. Cheers and hope to see you at the barre soon!
