Wine not? Garavan's New Wine Menu!

There is a popular quote which says "the best wines are the ones we drink with friends". That was certainly true at the recent launch of our New Wine Menu.

There really was something for everyone as guests sampled wines from regions such as Bordeaux, Austria and Jumilla! Wine has always been a popular choice of beverage here at Garavan's. Whether its a nice glass of red, while sitting out front watching the world go by, on a lazy Friday evening. Or sharing a bottle of Chardonnay with a group of friends, while enjoying the live music on a Saturday night!

Niamh and Sjef were on hand to explain each wine in detail and help tasters to appreciate the complexity of each choice. One lucky guest also walked away with a glorious hamper, containing a selection of the new wines! Lucky lady :)

Make sure you stop by soon and try our new wine list! Our team are always happy to tell you more about each wine and give you some background information on the region of origin.
