Classic wine pairing

The silky roundness of a dry white Graves pairs perfectly with the spiciness of the aubergine and the bitterness of the olive oil.

Original wine pairing

Let yourself be tempted by a fruity, light Côtes de Bordeaux red wine that will accentuate the taste of the feta in favor of the aubergine spices.


1 large organic aubergine
1 tablespoon of thyme
70g of feta
4 tablespoons of olive oil


Wash eggplant, and cut into round slices. In a mixing bowl, let aubergine slices dry for at least 1 hr. with a little salt.

Place slices on baking tray and baste with olive oil and thyme. Broil for 20 mins at 200°C, then place in blender; mix and leave to cool. Once cold, re-mix aubergine with feta. Season to taste.
