The Vinotini

Part martini, part wine—this drink has the best of both worlds.



Published:

The Vinotini is the newest innovation at Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar. A recipient of Wine Enthusiast Magazine's Award of Distinction, Fleming's Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar has rolled out its newest innovation, the Vinotini.

Is it a wine for martini-lovers, or a martini for wine-lovers? Flemings says it's a complex drink with satisfying layers and textures.

The Vinotini concept is the delectable result of six months of cocktail research and testing by Master Mixologist Francesco Lafranconi, Director of Wine, Marian Jansen op de Haar, and Fleming's National Training Coordinator Louis Horsley.
