Have you been looking for a guide on what wine to order with your meal? You’ve come to the right place! In this blog post, we’ll introduce you to a few of our restaurants’ best food options and briefly discuss what wines would pair best.
What is a Wine Menu?
A wine list is a menu of wine selections for purchase, typically in a restaurant setting. A restaurant may include a list of available wines on its main menu and offer a separate page or booklet to be given to diners that lists those wines. At Frankie’s, we have combined our selected wines with the main menu. In the past, restaurants would print these from huge books that were difficult to keep updated. But now, with the help of technology, all it takes is a few taps on your touchscreen, and voila – you have an up-to-date. Wine lists can be confusing and overwhelming, but not to worry – we’ve listed out your options.
Wines You Must Taste at Frankie’s
Our wine menu is full of different wine varieties-from ruby shiraz, crisp white, aromatic Chardonnay, full-bodied French wines, and everything in between. Whether you’re looking to try something new or find a favorite, we have them all! For those with specific preferences, we carry a variety of wines by type. You can choose from red, white, or rosé. We also carry a variety of wines by country and region. If you’re unsure what to order with your meal, our sommeliers are more than happy to help!
Best Food and Wine Pairings
Many factors go into determining which wine to drink with your meal, like the type of food you’re eating, how many people will be drinking, and even what you typically drink. But some wines are better than others for every occasion.
Joseph Drouhin, for instance, is typically considered to be one of the best bottles for this season because it goes well with everything from pasta to smoked salmon.
We know it can be difficult deciding on the perfect wine to pair with your order. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of wines and their best food partners to make things easier for you.
As a general rule, red meat dishes and tomato pasta go well with red wines. However, white wines are the best choice to cut the sea taste and add freshness to seafood. For appetizers with cheese, soups, and rolls, rosé is a delightful beverage to combine with.
How to read a Wine Menu
The menu will usually tell you the varietal, or grape type, of the wine. For instance, a bottle of Chardonnay may say “Chardonnay” and “Cabernet Sauvignon.” This means that it’s made mostly from Chardonnay grapes with Cabernet Sauvignon added to balance out flavors. You may also see wines listed by color. Many people like to pair light-colored wines like Pinot Noir with red meats and dark-colored wines like Merlot with lighter meats like chicken.
Frankie’s is the new restaurant in town with a hip and modern decor and an interesting menu and it’s quickly become a popular pass time in central Jakarta. However, as they’ve been in business for only a few years, their menu is still in constant development, and we’re always looking for suggestions about what we should add to our menu.
