The Real Food Real Wine 15 is bringing you the legendary Bec Hardy Wines and Ba Guo Bu Yi to the graceful sounds of the ancient Chinese lute
About this Event
About Real Food Real Wine:
Real Food Real Wine offers a lavish, exotic and classy mix of wine, food and art. It is an event that delivers on the principles of the Wine Residents Club: that wine and fine dining are about connections and expressions of personality and attitudes. The music adds the spirit of a culture, expressed in a universal tone.
We have been developing this concept since late 2019 and it has been evolving with an ever-improving quality of food and wine experiences. Our events feature unique experiences and high-level knowledge about wine, Asian cuisine and exotic performing arts, which you are unlikely to find elsewhere at such a reasonable cost.
It is an event about you and your friends, about the experiences that are far away, but that is also available in South Australia.

BA GUO BU YI
The restaurant, also simply known as Ba Guo, opened in July 2010, is well received as one of Adelaide's most popular. Over the years, it has been proudly bringing authentic Szechuan flavours to not only the Adelaide Chinese community here in Adelaide but also introducing the unique Szechuan cuisine to the masses of South Australian locals. The team pride itself on the high quality of dining experience and customer service it provides.
Ba Guo, historically refers to a tribal nation once known as "Ba", occupied the eastern Si Chuan basin in the south-west of China. In its heyday, it covered most of today's Si Chuan province;
Bu Yi, is a term of endearment for "the common people".
As the name suggests, the restaurant draws its inspiration from the Si Chuan (aka. Szechuan) cuisine. It seeks excellence and refinement in dishes created by, and, for the common people. It is the vision and goal of the restaurant to deliver an authentic dining experience of such cuisine to this beautiful southern State of Australia which it now calls home!

Music of the night pipa (Chinese lute)
Also known as "Bi Ba", was first recorded in history during the Han Dynasty (BC202-AC220). The pipa is played with a plectrum. This kind of pipa was called "Hu Pipa" at that time, and the emergence of a number of skilled players made this kind of pipa so popular that even the royal family began to listen to "Hu Le". Later, people combined with Hu Pipa to transform and develop the original "Qin Pipa" and form the preserved Tang Pipa today. Since then, it has been further modified, from sound to shape more suitable for Chinese taste. The modern pipa evolved from this kind of Tang pipa.
5 famous Chinese lute songs were finely tuned for the night to present 5 different ancient stories or scenes.
