New Wine List at Frank O'Dowd's

Galena Illinois WinespacerDedicated to providing an outstanding food and wine experience, the staff at Frank O'Dowd's has searched for the perfect collection of wines to complement Frank ODowds Irish Pub cuisine. Extensive tastings of wines from around the world resulted in an expanded wine list featuring nearly 30 wines by the glass.

Char Scace, Pub manager, looked for the perfect wines to balance the rich flavors of Frank O'Dowd's menu. The new wine list features restaurant-exclusive releases by Salmon Creek Winery; more offerings in each variety; and many new wine selections including Gnarly Head Zinfandel (California), Bianchi Elsa Malbec (Argentina), and Drylands Sauvignon Blanc (New Zealand).

Our most popular wines remain on the list including Chateau Ste. Michelle Riesling, Ironstone Obsession, Chateau St. Jean Chardonnay and Kellys Revenge Shiraz.

Through our tasting adventures, we discovered a few hidden gems including a Muscato from August Hill Winery in Utica, Illinois. This slightly sparkled wine is made from grapes hand-harvested from a vineyard in southern Illinois. Natural Golden Muscat juice is added to the fermented wine to add sweetness and heighten the fruit character. This dessert wine is the perfect ending to a meal at Frank O'Dowd's Irish Pub & Grill.
