🍷Brand new Wine & Cheese night at Frankie’s Italian at Fairmont Bab Al Bahr!🧀
Starting from 7pm every Tuesday, guests can enjoy 2 hours of free flowing wine and cheese spread for AED150 - bargain!
With a selection of 12 cheeses, the beautifully displayed spread is generous but not overwhelming, allowing you to explore a variety of cheeses of different textures and flavours from several European countries. From the softer options such as the Reblachon and Chamois D’Or to the more firm, smellier cheese such as the Shropshire, there’s something for everyone. The cheese was also served at the right temperature - an important element to enjoying good cheese!
An assortment of accompaniments fills the table – various breads, nuts, crackers, prunes, fruits and flavoured jams. The jams (think kiwi, pinapple, orange, blueberry, strawberry) made in-house, are amazing and delicious with the cheese.
Our server and bartender, Jithin, was friendly and informative, offering helpful information to navigating the three premium wine options on offer which had been hand selected by the team, with a focus on serving high quality wines from various featured regions.
Starting off the evening with some sparkly, the Casa Defra Prosecco from the Veneto region of Italy was crisp, light and refreshing. Throughout the evening, we also sampled the Principessa Gavia, a soft white wine embodying tropical fruity flavours, as well as the Piemonte Barbera, a smooth, medium bodied red with berry flavour undertones. All of the wines served were excellent and carefully selected to compliment the cheese spread.
Nathan, the resident pianist and singer, keeps your toes tapping throughout the evening with a range of easy listening jazz and blues music. His voice is so smooth that I didn’t realise it was him singing at first! He adds an element of fun to his set by taking requests and replacing words with ‘wine and cheese’ to fit the theme.
