    Address: 12, Jalan SS 20/10, Damansara Kim, Petaling Jaya

    D's Wine Bar is one of the wine bars that I trust the most when I am ordering my wine by the glass as they provide one of the best glasses for tasting, and the by-the-glass selection usually holds some unusual wines. D's Wine Bar opened in December 2022 with the idea of being an educational wine bar, according to Happy Gan who is the manager and sommelier at D's. The wine program in D's mainly focuses on Grower Champagne and Burgundy but also holds some wines from Loire, Bordeaux, Rhone, Galicia, Priorat, and Catalonia, plus some detours to Italy and Australia as well. If you are lucky, you...

    Address: 5, Jalan 2/109f, Taman Danau Desa, Kuala Lumpur

    One of my favourite wine bars in Kuala Lumpur, serving good value wines and great tapas and sharing platters that pair well with the wines offered in the wine bar. Gallo Wine Bar opened in 2016 and is situated in the Taman Desa area and run by Mandy Chin who is the owner as well as the sommelier. The wine list is created for Malaysian consumers with the idea of having a balance of old-world and new-world wines, with a main focus on classic regions such as Bordeaux, Tuscany, Piedmont and Rioja, with a small mix of lesser-known regions such as Campania, Sicily, Anjou and Minervois. The inter...

    Address: Golf & Country Resort, Menara Lien Hoe, 8, Persiaran Tropicana, Tropicana, Petaling Jaya

    Under the same roof that manages EMP KL, Lavo and Lavo Gallery are other venues located at Tropicana township in Petaling Jaya. The interior is modern, artful and funky for Lavo and a classy underground cellar feel for Lavo Gallery. Lavo is a blend of three different concepts: Restaurant, Bistro and Wine Atelier, whereas Lavo Gallery is their underground retail and storage. The food in Lavo is based on the common Malaysian comfort food, from Asian to Western, and my all-time favourite will be the Nasi Lemak Berempah and a glass of German Riesling. Size does matter and the wine list in Lavo a...

    Address: 7, Jalan Telawi 2, Bangsar, Kuala Lumpur

    If you are looking for a restaurant with only natural wine, I would say that Unwined Plus is worth a visit. The wine list starts from France, Italy and Spain in the Old World and continues to Australia, New Zealand and South Africa in the New World where all the wines fall under either one of the categories of organic, biodynamic, sustainable and low intervention. The wines are selected by the owner/sommelier Hsiao Tung Wei. He was so dedicated and passionate about the wines from these categories that he eventually obtained a winery in Italy and started producing his dream wines under these c...
