VIN­TRY

Time Out Malaysia Eating and Drinking Guide - - KL & SURROUNDS -

More than just a wine shop, Vin­try has be­come an in­sti­tu­tion in KL. Now with four out­lets, in­clud­ing a new spa­cious branch in Am­pang, there’s more rea­son than ever to en­joy their warm hos­pi­tal­ity and invitation to “ex­pe­ri­ence wine”.

Stock­ing an im­pres­sive va­ri­ety of old world and new world bot­tles, Vin­try of­fers high qual­ity wine with­out the usual restau­rant mark-up. You’ll find su­per­mar­ket prices here but with the ben­e­fit of rus­ti­cally charm­ing bars where you can en­joy your wine on the spot. For wine be­gin­ners, ex­perts are on hand to guide you through the se­lec­tion and help you find the right bot­tle for any oc­ca­sion.

Mean­while, the menu at Vin­try in­cludes some truly leg­endary pork dishes, which make the bars worth vis­it­ing in their own right. The caramelized roasted pork is sub­lime, while the deep fried pork strips made it into Time Out KL’s list of the top things to eat in this city un­der RM15. Crav­ing some fin­ger lick­ing ribs? Look no fur­ther than the aptly named Ribs, the group’s flag­ship restau­rant.

Each of the four Vin­try out­lets of­fers some­thing a lit­tle dif­fer­ent. If you’re look­ing for a quiet and in­ti­mate spot, check out Vin­try Da­mansara, a laid-back wine shop where you can linger with friends for hours. Vin­try Jaya 33, on the other hand, is a spir­ited 4000sqft of win­ing and din­ing space, of­fer­ing a fine range of whiskies and beer on tap along with wines-by-the-glass via its Eno­matic Wine-Serv­ing Sys­tems. Vin­try Am­pang is the new­est out­let and fea­tures the favourites of Vin­try and Ribs in a fam­ily-friendly restau­rant with an in­te­rior that is cool, rus­tic and so fa­mil­iarly homely that one can com­fort­ably set­tle down to, whether you are across the seas or street.

Draw­ing its name from an old English word for a wine shop, all the Vin­try out­lets can trans­port you to another world. With their sim­ple, bare brick dé­cor, li­brary aes­thetic and cosy low light­ing, there’s nowhere bet­ter to es­cape from the harsh­ness of the mod­ern world. Es­pe­cially when you have a glass of wine in your hand.
