'Charcuterie, Cheese and Wine Unlimited' Promotion - Vine Lounge at KUVO

One of our recent Friday evenings saw us visiting a fairly new bar and restaurant concept on Orchard Road. The Orchard Road area is not somewhere I often go out in the evening now, I think partly because I work there so like to go elsewhere in my free time and at the weekends, for me at least, it is very crowded. KUVO (where we were wining and dining) is actually in the Orchard Shopping mall, an older looking mall (to me) that although I was aware of I'm fairly certain I've never been in before and assumed I probably never would. KUVO then is a bit of a hidden delight tucked away in amongst the malls and busyness of Orchard Road and is well worth checking out.



KUVO offers a multi-concept approach to dining with four different ways to enjoy an evening however you choose. It's a surprisingly large space (spanning over 9000sqft) offering distinct areas to enjoy some bespoke cocktails, an extensive range of wines, a spread of dishes in their restaurant or to spend some of your hard earned cash in their gift shop. I like the fact that the different areas are divided off, ensuring that, however you want to spend your evening, you know you'll be surrounded by like-minded individuals. Each area has a pleasant intimacy and is very welcoming ensuring that you'll be able to enjoy your evening to the utmost.

The areas within KUVO include the Ambrosia I and II and Gazebo, the main dining space where you can dine on a selection of Western and Asian inspired dishes, the Elixir Bar for cocktails and small plates to match the drinks and the Vine Lounge housing over 140 wine labels including several exclusive selections. Our evening was spent in the Vine Lounge where we got to enjoy KUVO's current 'Charcuterie, Cheese and Wine Unlimited' promotion which is available now until 31 May 2015.

The Vine Lounge, described as 'a welcoming oasis for urban warriors seeking a laidback spot to satiate their love for wine' is a relaxed spot to enjoy wine in the company of friends and loved ones, though it would also make a good choice for drinks for more formal occasions too. As you can see in the photos above it has a number of comfy sofas and seats to unwind in, whether in large or small groups, after a busy day along with a bar on the far wall which you can sit at as well if you wish. It was nice to note that the seating is far enough apart from others that you don't spend your evening unwittingly eavesdropping on other people's conversations or them doing it to you.

Their "Charcuterie, Cheese & Wine Unlimited" promotion, is pretty impressive as you can enjoy unlimited servings of charcuterie, cheese and wine for $78++ per person. The promotion is available every Friday and Saturday, from 9pm to 12 midnight and runs from now until 31 May 2015.

Deluxe Charcuterie and Cheese Platter

During our visit we were able to enjoy a selection of the wines available in the lounge alongside our platter, note that these are subject to availability. Our wines for the evening were;

  • Antica Fratta Brut (one of the Vine Lounge's exclusive selections)
  • J.Hofsttater Pinot Bianco (one of the Vine Lounge's exclusive selections)
  • Markowisch Pinot Noir
  • Pierre Jean Chardonnay
  • Arlequin GSM
My preference is for white wine I have to admit so I had a glass of the chardonnay to start and then stuck to the Italian bubbles (Antica Fratta Brut) which went down very nicely. My husband also tried the Arlequin GSM, a red, describing it as light and refreshing. I had a little too and even for me it was pleasant and I'm pretty sure I could have drunk a glass.

The deluxe charcuterie and cheese platter included the following;
  • Cold Cut (Pork Salami and Prosciutto Ham)
  • Cheese (Taleggio, Bleu de Bresse)
  • Olives (House marinated, Sun-dried tomatoes)
  • Dried fruits, prune and apricot marmalade 
  • Toasted walnut and table wafers
This was absolutely delicious and well worth trying. What's not to like about cured meats and full of flavour cheeses all washed down with a few glasses of wine? Alongside delicious, sharp and tangy marmalades, just right for adding an extra zing to your plate and a different texture to your food. The pickled garnish of vegetables were also very tasty. I only tried the taleggio cheese, a soft cheese, as I admit I'm not really a blue cheese fan (my husband was delighted to benefit from that) but this was surprisingly mild and very very pleasant. He definitely wasn't getting any of that one!

As I've mentioned with the current promotion, the platter, and the wine are on an unlimited serving between 9pm and 12 midnight, Friday and Saturday nights. All the more reason to go and sample it very soon! I don't think you could possibly leave hungry and the platters are perfect for sharing, or just simply eating it all yourself.
