Kitchen Pops was obliged for being invited and to get a chance to experience the wonderful place with its specially booked corner table inside. The interesting choice of songs was a cherry on the cake. Well greeted by the manager, we were helped with the menus and were suggested to try their special fest of wine tasting. The breath-taker was their “Carari Roti” (INR 125) which was served to us to start our brilliant food journey @ The Wine Company. Served on a big plate and of huge size seemed to be like a vessel shaped upside down roomali roti which was fried or was like a huge papad. When asked the steward, he helped us understand that yes, it was something similar to the dough of roomali roti as it was made of corn flour and sprinkled with parsley, chili powder and Chaat masala along with butter.
While munching the tasty carari roti, we browsed through the menu and found about their wide variety of choices for guests to order and share across and fall in love with their wines once again. Wine Flights (INR 945)- We were then delighted by the 4 glasses of different wines spread on a piece of a paper describing the details about them. It said:
- Royance Lady Semillion – Shiny & pale gold dress. A delicate nose with aromas of tropical fruit and citrus. On the palate it is elegant, round, fruity, slightly sweet and a mineral touch to finish.
- Royance King Bordeaux – With its beautiful ruby red color and a sensual nose of strawberry, this wine is very elegant and well structured in the mouth with supple tannins.
- Pettirojo Sauvignon Blanc – Light yellow with a lightly golden tone, this Sauvignon Blanc oers aromas of tropical and citrus fruits such as lemon and grapefruit. The medium-bodied palate is refreshing and crisp with herbal notes and a pleasing Nish.
- Pettirojo Cabernet Sauvignon – Intense ruby red, this Cabernet Sauvignon oers red fruit aromas along with spices, chocolate, turmeric, black pepper, and black currant. The deep and delicate palate reveals a predominance of fruit such as blueberries and plum jam. The tannins are soft and enveloping, and the Nish is long and pleasing.
Our personal favorite is the Royance Lady Semillion, which is a white wine. Along with these wines, we were served some great salads, cheese platter, followed by pizzas, pastas, risotto and the lip-smacking desserts.
The cheese platter was so attractive with the colorful cheese, pine nuts and cherry tomatoes. Next to our table was grilled pesto mushrooms with pine nuts and goat cheese (INR 290). The mushrooms were well cooked and had a perfect flavor of the cheese and nuts which were stuffed. A flawless dish for mushroom lovers to go along with your drinks.
Bread is one food that everyone loves in India and have them in their daily meals. To make us have the best experience, we were then presented with Bruchetta Platter (INR 325) – whipped cheese with asparagus, olives, tomatoes and feta cheese, goat cheese with sun-dried tomatoes and balsamic reduction. We are not the real lovers of bruchetta but these ones changed our feelings and made us fall in love with their different toppings fresh and tasty bruchettas. When the bread served with such a different toppings, the love for them increases many folds. Along with these bruchettas, we were served the tomatoes with cheese toppings. Cheese is said to be one of the best accompaniments for the wine as it helps you to clear your palate when you switch the wines from one to another.
Moving on to the main course after our wonderful wine tasting along with their luscious appetizers and salads, we opted to stick to Fruit Sangrias along with the pizza and pasta. We started our main course journey with half-half of two vegetarian pizzas:
- Bell peppers, caramalized onion, mushroom and scarmorza (INR 385) and
- Jalapeno, olive, red onion, arugula and feta cheese (INR 385)
If you haven’t tasted the pizzas of The Wine Company, you are deifinitely missing out on something really really scrumptious with their special thick cheese and marinara flavours. Our personal favourite out of the two was the Bell peppers, caramalized onion, mushroom and scarmorza pizza. The pizzas were nicely cooked and were thin crust pizzas. The flavours of the food was clearly indicating the mastery of the chef. Truly amazing!
To make us fall in love once again with the place, we were offered the Vegetarian Penne mix sauce pasta along with Crispy Garlic Risotto. The pasta had more of the tomato sauce and was perfectly seared penne pasta with the flavours of rosemary and cheese. You gonna fall in love with it if you are a fan of pasta not much of veggies into it. However, the crispy garlic risotto had a strong falvour of garlic along with crispy onions, sun dried tomatoes and creamy sauce.
