If you love to wine and dine. This is perfect for you.
Free-wines is a world-first free app that offers members a free bottle of award winning wine, when a minimum amount is spent on dining in participating restaurants around Australia. The program was launched in August 2015 and is available for download via Apple and Android devices. All these privileges would not have been possible if not for Zenith Wine Agencies – one of Australia’s top wine distributors.
Burp! was invited to experience the Free Wines App recently. I was very impressed with the simplicity and ease of use of this app – so much so that it doesn’t take a genius to figure that out. I brought this app to a test at participating restaurant Bistro-K in Melbourne.
Step 1 – Select your restaurant and make your dinner appointment
Step 2 – At the restaurant, simply press “order your free wine” button
Step 3 – Select your wine option and show the waiter. Press order button.
Voila! Easy and fuss-free. Just how I like it.
Once the wine option was used for the day, you’ll have to wait for another 24 hours before it resets. But that’s not a huge problem for me because I think this promotion has a really great value.
We went with the Hahndorf Hill Pinot Grigio from Adelaide Hills which is slightly fruity and pairs really well with the spicy savoury Korean dishes. It was also timely as Bistro K has just updated their menu. I’ve tested their previous menu before and absolutely loved the Modern Korean theme. The prices were reasonable and portion size was big.
Looking at their new 1-pager menu – they’ve seemed to gone back to Korean wholesomeness and simplicity. Some of their new dishes that we tried are the Pan-fried pork belly wrapped with lettuce with Korean soybean chilli sauce (3 pcs – $13), 7+ Wagyu beef salad ($15), Sizzling spicy seafood ($19) and Grilled pineapple with vanilla ice cream ($6). Flavours are good but the dishes are a bit more expected and not as surprising compared to the old menu.
