The Free Wines App

In early August, the dining program launched its free App which is now available to download in both the Apple and Android play stores.  

A world first, the App offers members a free bottle of award winning wine when they dine at participating restaurants with a minimum spend (usually $100 or more). These include chef hatted restaurants, local restaurants, pubs, clubs and cafes – something for everyone.  And to make the deal even sweeter, the membership for Free-wines is absolutely free.

The free wine is provided by Zenith Wine Agencies, a specialist on-premise wine importer and wholesaler, rated in the Top 20 national and east coast on-premise distributors in Australia.

Gastrology recently experienced the Free Wines App at Sezar.
One of the few venues to serve Armenian cuisine, Sezar brings a fresh approach on traditional Armenian flavour combinations to Melbourne. 

To receive a free bottle of wine, all you have to do is:
  1. Make sure you download the Free Wines app to your phone.
  2. On the night of your visit to a participating restaurant, select that restaurant on the App.
  3. Select your wine of choice (there is always a bottle of red and a bottle of white wine to choose from).
  4. A pop up message will appear saying ‘Please show your waiter’. Show this to your waiter and the waiter will then bring you your bottle of wine!

It was incredibly easy and fuss free to use.

We thoroughly enjoyed the food that we had at Sezar. For starters we recommend the Spinach & Feta Boreg. These mouth-watering pastry cigars were delightful. Biting through thin, crunchy exterior pastry, our taste buds were greeted with a flavoursome concoction of soft wilted spinach and luxurious feta. 
The Twice cooked chicken wings were also delicious. The meaty chicken wings were crusted with a flavoursome spice mix and then perfectly fried to achieve a moreish crunchy exterior and drizzled with pomegranate glaze before being laced with crushed pistachios. 

From the Large Plates section, the Armenian BBQ Chicken is not to be missed. The chicken was exquisitely tender and full of flavour and went beautifully with the pickles, tabouleh, flat bread and tahini.

The Coombe Farm Pinot Noir which we had chosen was the perfect companion for the food we had. The fruitiness and hints of spice from the wine were a great match for the dominant fresh herbs which featured in every dish. 

The desserts at Sezar are a must have. The dessert tasting plate features every sweet on the menu and is a sight to behold (before devouring). Think crispy filo, walnut toffee, ice cream and salted caramel or Vanilla parfait with crumbly pistachio crust, berries and lashings of rosewater syrup. Simply stunning!
