The Jakarta Post - JPlus - - News -

Since open­ing its doors in 2004 in the tony area of Ke­mang, South Jakarta; VIN+ has be­come the old­est and most trusted wine au­thor­ity in town. Boast­ing an in­ven­tory of more than 1,800 la­bels from over 10 wine­grow­ing re­gions in the world, as well as a host of trained som­me­liers; VIN+ guar­an­tees that you will get the right bot­tle ev­ery time. From Ke­mang, VIN+ has since ex­panded, open­ing out­lets in Bali and through­out Jakarta, with a re­tail shop at the Cen­tral Park shop­ping cen­ter in West Jakarta, and bou­tiques in Plaza Se­nayan Ar­ca­dia and the Pon­dok In­dah Mall Street Gallery, both in South Jakarta. The wine bou­tiques are spots to un­wind after work for happy hour–or to let off steam with friends over din­ner while wait­ing out the traf­fic. The goal of VIN+ is to ed­u­cate pa­trons about the com­plex­i­ties of wine to en­hance their plea­sure while drink­ing it. The staff are happy to tell you more about the wines of the dif­fer­ent re­gions on of­fer. How­ever, take care: Once you start ex­plor­ing, you might never stop. Things will only get bet­ter. The bou­tiques of VIN+ also of­fer guests a chance to sam­ple the wines of dif­fer­ent re­gions on a ro­tat­ing monthly ba­sis. Mean­while the chefs have been care­fully cho­sen to en­sure that ev­ery dish or­dered will mag­nif­i­cently com­pli­ment your cho­sen bot­tle of wine. The kitchen line-up in­cludes Chef Djoko Suwarno at VIN+ Plaza Se­nayan, Head Chef Deni Su­gia­rto at VIN+ Ke­mang and Chef Ah­mad Khairul Mur­salim at VIN+ Pon­dok In­dah Street Gallery. The chefs have helped VIN+ ex­pand its ex­per­tise into restau­rants, bars, lounges and cof­fee shops; en­hanc­ing the oenophile’s culi­nary ex­pe­ri­ence by of­fer­ing great food con­cepts for break­fast, lunch and din­ner that go well with its wine col­lec­tion. In Ke­mang, things start to get busy at 8 a.m., with the cof­fee shop of­fer­ing its renowned blend un­til clos­ing time, along with spe­cial pas­tries and readyto-go sand­wiches that pair per­fectly with the cof­fee. Other VIN+ out­lets, mean­while, com­bine the con­cepts of a restau­rant, chill­out lounge and re­tail space and are open daily for lunch and din­ner, serv­ing In­done­sian cui­sine while of­fer­ing vast and com­fort­able din­ing ar­eas. Also on of­fer are ca­sual wine-pair­ing din­ners. A pri­vate din­ing room, sit­u­ated next to the re­tail shop at Ke­mang, is a perfect venue to host in­ti­mate pri­vate din­ners or meet­ings. Mean­while, VIN+ Seminyak Bali of­fers a beau­ti­ful mez­za­nine for a ca­sual gath­er­ing of up to 60 peo­ple for a catered din­ner or 120 guests for a stand­ing cock­tail party. The seam­less blend­ing of restau­rant, lounge and bar in one space of­fers a com­fort­able, min­i­mal­ist in­te­rior and cozy light­ing, while friendly staff tell you all you need to know about wine. Wine is at its best when en­joyed with mu­sic, so sa­vor a glass while groov­ing to the sounds of a live acous­tic band or in-house DJ per­for­mance at events like, WINECOUSTIC, of­fer­ing a perfect com­bi­na­tion of wine, food and mu­sic. Plans are also in the works to host an event called ROLLIN’ UP, which will bring to VIN+ three of the best singers from the 1990s. Cu­ri­ous as to who the three singers will be? Stay tuned.
