Move aside Burgundy, it's time for someone else to step into the limelight!
At our next tasting we will be pouring some very special Pinot Noirs from Austria, Germany and Switzerland. The line up will include some wines from two of our recent German additions - Weingut Roterfaden from Württemberg and Pinot Noir mavericks Enderle & Moll from Baden.
We will also be opening a very special Pinot from cult Swiss producer Domaine de Mythopia!
Rest assured, this is one heck of a line-up.
Tis' the season to drink all the fizz!
Join us on Wednesday the 6th for a special bubble-themed drop in tasting.
We will be pouring 8 delicious sparklers, including one of our special Swiss ciders from Cidrerie du Vulcain and a few new arrivals we haven't had a chance to share with you yet!
Tickets will be £10 and as always, there's no need to book, just drop in anytime from 6pm to 8pm. And of course join us for a glass (or bottle) of wine after!
We are thrilled to have just started working with the stunning Swiss wines of Markus Ruch. Markus biodynamically farms 3 hectares of vines in the Klettgau valley in eastern Switzerland, making some of the most delectable Pinot Noirs and amphorae-fermented whites we've tasted!
Markus will be coming over to visit us for the first time on Sunday the 19th November, and pouring some of his wines at one of our favourite watering holes - Sager & Wilde Hackney Road! Swiss-born Michael Sager has long championed Swiss wines, and we are very excited to be co-hosting this special winemaker night with him.
There will be wine, lots of Swiss cheese (of course), and an abundance of happy faces!
Join us on Wednesday for a tasting of some special white wines from Christoph Neumeister - our most recent Styrian addition!
Christoph and his brother organically cultivate 24 hectares of vines around the steep hillsides of Straden in south eastern Styria, Austria. Everything is done by hand in the vineyards and the cellar, and the brothers have plantings in some of the oldest Sauvignon Blanc plots in Styria.
Yes that's right, it's high time we cracked out the schnapps!
On the 4th of October we'll be pouring some delicious fruit juice and schnapps (eau de vie) from Wetter. This artisanal Austrian producer works almost exclusively with old varieties of fruit that's rarely seen in commercial production. Everything is done by hand in the orchard and only the best quality fruit makes the cut.
Tickets are £5 and are available to buy on the day.
Lukas Mraz of Cordobar fame will be taking over the Newcomer kitchen on the 7th, 8th, and 9th of September.
Lukas is one of Austria's most talented and innovative young chefs, as well as a good friend of ours. This collaboration has been in the works for some time now, and we are very excited to finally have it in the calendar!
We are very excited to be teaming up with Wines of Germany and Wine & Vinyl to throw one epic winemaker night!
We will be welcoming 4 of our most recent German winemaker additions along with Rob Butler (Be With Records), Ben Adamo (Fujiya and Miyagi) and Sister Ray DJs. Join us for our most serious wine and music collaboration yet!
