Porterhouse

A bottle of Selbach-Oster Zeltinger Schlossberg Spatlese Trocken, Selbach-Oster is the perfect summer sip at Porterhouse. Zetinger Schlossberg is the Premier Grand Cru wine from Mosel, one of Germany’s most well-known wine regions. Their sommelier describes it as “aromatic yet elegant, with intense lime, apple, butter-vanilla in the nose. It’s rich, crispy and refreshing with great depth of finish, and is a very well-balanced wine. This dry Riesling is going amazingly well with all kind of seafood, especially our selections of oysters, Seared Hokkaido Scallops, or The Grand Ocean Platter!”

Carbone

"White wines are usually the go-to in summer, so for my guests I’ll be recommending a clean, crisp, medium-bodied style wine rather than something richer and creamier," says Carbone's Johann Kwon. "Carbone's house wine, San Salvatore 'Trentenare' Fiano 2017 vintage is a great approachable, medium-bodied pour for hotter weather. The varietal from Campania (Italy), 'Fiano', shows seductive peach, tropical fruit flavours with intense flower, charming stony minerality and crisp acidity. It is quite a versatile pairing partner with a broad type of dishes; from summer vegetables, Caprese salad, light seafood dishes but also for pork dim sum,  fishballs and even spicy Thai foods."

Arcane

Some people save Champagne for special occasions, but sometimes the special occasion is just having dinner with the people you love. If you’re having dinner at Arcane this summer, why not celebrate the special, everyday moments with a bottle of Thiénot, Rosé. This non-vintage is a blend of three Champagne grape varietals, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier to create a stunning pink colour and a palate of fresh summer raspberries. Why not try it with a cheese plate on their dreamy patio?
