Multiple Taste Sensations: Time to Vino

Darlinghurst’s Time To Vino popped up on the Sydney bar scene when it needed it most, and we still can’t get enough of it. It could be that the atmosphere that keeps us coming back for more. Or maybe it’s the wine. Or the service. Or the food. Stop it, you’re confusing me.

The wine selection here is obviously impressive, which is perhaps why Time to Vino was recognised by Gourmet Traveler’s 2009 Wine List of the Year Awards. The venue caters to people trying as many different wines as they can possibly gorge down, with the perfect size servings of a glass each for two or a glass each for four. The service is excellent, which is a refreshing compliment for Sydney, a city not known for it. The waiters sure do know their stuff, too. Whatever you’re in the mood for, they’ll bring it out to you – and if you don’t know what that is, they’ll certainly help you decide. Best of all? The wines are affordable, so you really CAN drink as much as you want. If you’re anything like me, that means you need to be a little careful.

The food menu is ideal for a bar like this – it is, of course, designed to complement the wine. There’s a selection of small to large feeds to choose from. I propose you grab a few of the small feeds and make them one big feed, as you tend to try more – and, inevitably, drink more that way. With such options as Woodside Goats Curd, Red Peppers, White Anchovy and Crackers; Soft Shell Crab Sandwich with Celeriac Remoulade; and the Baked Polenta, Basil and Gorgonzola Dolce Latte, you really want to taste as much as possible.

Time to Vino really hit the spot in Darlinghurst, which was aching for a charming, affordable wine bar for quite some time. The timber floors and furniture give it a rustic vibe, and the friendly atmosphere makes it the ideal spot for a catch up with a few friends. It was part of the first signs that Sydney’s bar scene was headed in the right direction when it opened last year, and it definitely hasn’t let its grip on the revolution slip.
We highly recommend it.
