QT Sydney Wine List adds Punch to European Style Brasserie

Posted on: 27 August 2012

A painstakingly crafted list of artisan wine labels has been developed for Gowings Bar & Grill, the hottest restaurant opening of 2012 to hit Sydney’s hippest, new design hotel – QT Sydney. QT Sydney sits on the corner of Sydney’s busiest intersection of George and Market Streets, and has teamed up with wine supremo, Ian Cook to join QT Sydney’s Creative Food Director, Robert Marchetti and Executive Chef, Paul Easson as Wine Consultant, bringing a wealth of wine knowledge to the strong stable of hospitality superstars.

Ian Cook’s experience in selecting small batch and limited release wines, as well as palate favourites made him the ideal choice to work with QT Sydney, where the focus is on quirky but well-rounded experience.

Working closely with Marchetti, the team has created a list that compliments as well as enhances the specialties and flavour accents of the European style brasserie, Gowings Bar & Grill menu.

“We’re here to add diversity to a diners experience, as well as putting diners at ease – helping them choose the wines that best suit the foods they’ve ordered and to have a bit of fun exploring the wine list,” said Cook.

From full bodied, grill friendly South Australian reds to a light and dry rose from South of France, Cook will focus on wine producers from Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Italy, Germany, Austria and France to give diners a variety of wine styles to choose from.

Encompassing approximately 120 domestic and international wines on the Gowings Bar & Grill wine list, Cook will be an indispensable part of the food and beverage team helping diners to discover a wine completely new to them or suggesting an unusual but highly satisfying match with the European style brasserie.

Ian Cook will deliver a wine list in conjunction with a beautiful executed food menu to offer Sydneysiders and international guests an unforgettable food and wine experience.

About QT Sydney

The culmination of some hefty restoration work, the historic Gowings and State Theatre buildings in Sydney’s CBD have been artfully revamped to see the introduction of Sydney’s newest hip designer hotel, QT Sydney.

An eagerly awaited development, with the gothic façades and features of the buildings carefully returned to their former glory, whilst inside the hotel possess cutting edge art and design featuring LED digital art, bespoke furniture and a strong use of bold colours makes clever interior design central to the hotel experience. And you can’t beat the location – it couldn’t be more in the heart of the city of it tried. The bowler hat lights are a favourite cheeky touch, but there’s a huge focus on art and design here. QT isn’t just about a place to lay your head.

QT Sydney is scheduled to open in September this year and is the only Sydney hotel to be a member of the exclusive Design Hotels.
