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.
