The Caribbean in June

Enjoy the islands at half the price


« Prev Next » 6 of 7

Okay, enough with the picture porn, we are a wine site after all. You want wine in the Caribbean? There is one place you have to go: Graycliff in Nassau the Bahamas. There are other great restaurants in the Bahamas, but only one is packed with hundreds of pages of small font, listing wines from around the globe that are ready to drink and indulge in!

Where to begin? Since we’re fantasizing, 1979 Laville Haut-Brion sounds like a nice place to start. You can follow that with just about any Bordeaux or DRC. Even in my dreams I’m practical, so let’s share a couple of vintages of Drouhin Griotte Chambertin followed by a Slovenian intermezzo (it’s a BIG list I tell you) and finish up dinner with some magnums of Mayacamas Cabernet from the late 1970s and early 1980s.

If we’re still thirsty, we can dip our toes in some 100-year-old Madeira. Literally, they have a Madeira fountain. No, wait, that’s a lie. Fantasy over. Graycliff 1- GDP 0.

    My favourite is taking a bareboat from Tortola for a week or two for some island hopping. But you need to source (the good) wines before leaving the port.

    It's amazing that you dealt only with the anglophone islands (forgive me, but St Martin/St Maarten doesn't count as non-anglophone). The best food and wine in the Caribbean is found on Martinique, Guadeloupe, and St Barth's by far; it's not even close.
