Pop up restaurants and food outlets widen Real Wine Fair offer
The Real Wine Fair between March 17-18 at London's Tobacco Dock will offer visitors the chance to sample a wide range of artistan food products and eat in pop up bars and restaurants as well as taste and buy hundreds of natural wines.
The team behind the Terroirs group of restaurants (Brawn, Soif, Green Man and French Horn) will be running their own pop up restaurant, The Unfiltered Dog at the event. The Real Wine Fair is organised by Doug Wregg, director of sales and marketing at wine suppliers, Les Caves de Pyrene, that are part of the Terroirs team.
The 180-seat pop-up bistro will offer a range of dishes familiar at its main restaurants and will also be available for those not attending the fair. Its 40 bin wine list will include wines available at the fair.
Roberson Wine Merchant will be running its own retail store where visitors can buy wines from growers at the fair.
An online Real Wine Shop will also be set up and run by Roberson as part of Real Wine Month which is being run through March where wine drinkers across the country will be able to buy and taste organic, biodynamic and natural wines at over 200 participating restaurants and independent wine merchants. These will include wines featured at The Real Wine Fair.
