Unwinding at UnWine'd

I recently tried a new wine and tapas restaurant in Vancouver called UnWine’d. The food and service were great and the atmosphere was warm, relaxed and comfortable. With the leather club chairs, fireplace, dim lighting, dark wood and the long, gleaming, well-stocked bar it had a cozy lounge vibe. There are also two patios for those hot summer nights. Far from pretentious, it's a great place to go and relax, as their name implies, and try new wines and share some flavourful tapas or a mouthwatering dessert.

Their wine list has an interesting selection and the wines are reasonably priced. They have 35 reds available for tasting, 12 by the glass, and 17 whites, with 6 available by the glass.

We tried two California wines: Mark West Pinot Noir (Central Coast, 2004) and Smoking Loon Viognier. Both were excellent and paired well with the tapas we ordered. The Viognier went especially well with the charred ginger beef with sweet peppers and chili gelee, as it’s a great pairing with most spicy foods. Both wines were equally tasty with the tiger prawn and scallop skewers with honey and chive immersion. Yum, Yum! I'll definitely be back!

Thankfully, both wines are available at BC Liquor Stores, so I’ll be off to get some and try them again at home. Their reviews will be coming up.

Cheers!
