We are EXCITED to announce that we have won Wine Spectator's Award of Excellence! The award honors restaurants for having "one of the most outstanding restaurant wine lists in the world."
At Duval's we have a love and passion for fresh local seafood! However, our passion for delivering memorable dining experiences for guests who dine at Duval's does not stop there. Our love and passion for fine wine burns equally as strong!
We have a very European mentality in regards to how a meal should be appreciated..... with a lot of wonderful wine! Keeping this mentality in mind, we constructed an exciting and extensive wine list that has a wide array of offerings to pair with everything on our menu. The list is set in a progressive style which makes it very easy to navigate. Progressively arranging the wines from light to full bodied and from sweet to dry will help you find that perfect wine to pair with your meal. In addition to being setup progressively, the list is also categorized with various taste profiles. From "Cool Breezes" that are clean and crisp whites to "Jam, Spice, and Everything Nice" which are reds full of character like Syrah and Zinfandels, our wine list "The Juice" takes all of the guessing out of finding a wine that's just right for you. In our mission to cater to Sarasota Foodies and Wine Lovers, our wine list plays a big role!
On top of having a wine list with more than 120 selections we also offer seasonal prix fixe menus. The prix fixe menus typically offer 3 to 4 courses with multiple selections for each course. In addition to the cuisine offerings, we have optional wine pairings in which diners can have a beautiful wine paired with each course. We are now offering the Savory Summer Prix Fixe Menu!
Wine dinners are another way that we provide memorable meals for our diners. Once every month we close for regular dining and invite a wine group or specific winery from around the world to Duval's. Chef Nils then pairs a delectable menu with their wines. The wine dinners are fun and interactive and allow you to try new and exciting dishes from the Chef and experience dining at its best!
