Sunday: The Real Wine Fair 120 wines for £15 (free for some Bon Vivants)

What a great way to spend a Sunday, trying 20-50 wines,  then wagging your tail at the Pop up restaurant, The unfiltered Dog.

Should be jolly good fun!!! and of course, there will be some learning too!

You can arrive from 10am (but Justin will meet you at the front near the check in table at 12pm.  I will email his number to those that sign up

What's on:

The Real Wine Fair is a wine tasting of 120 artisan winemakers who work organically, biodynamically and without additives in the winery. All the growers will be present to pour and talk about their wines. Various restaurants and artisan food specialists will be there to feed and refresh the customers including Zucca, Duck Soup, Donostia, Handmade Food, Hoxton Beach, Camden Town Brewery and Caravan Coffee. Other attractions include an on-site wine shop, seminars and a pop-restaurant in the evening called The Unfiltered Dog which is open to the general public and fair-growers alike.

Address:

Tobacco Dock, Porter's Walk, Wapping E1W 2SF  (Tobacco Dock, is very cool! Went to a Christmas party here)

The nearest tube station: are Shadwell or Wapping

It's not fair from Tower Hill Station, so check the buses from there

When:

Sunday 13th April 2014 - 10.00am - 6.00pm

Justin will meet you at the checkin desk at 12pm or at the exit to the seminar room at 3pm  The pop up restaurant is first come first served, so you can deside as a group if you'd like to go.  Please let me know in your rsvp if you are planning to stay for dinner.

Last year the food was amazing: about the pop up

The folk behind Terroirs (Brawn, Soif, Green Man and French Horn) are popping up with a ‘one night only’ pop-up at this year’s Real Wine Fair.

Their bistro, winningly monickered The Unfiltered Dog, will be open for dinner for one night only on Sunday, 13th April. It’ll serve up a short-but-punchy à la carte menu of platters, hot and cold dishes and desserts.

There will be a terrific value wine list available, listing wines from many of the growers at the fair.

Dinner will be served from 6pm-­10pm (last orders)

Tables will be allocated on a first come, first serve basis. Don’t miss out!

Masterclasses:

There are tutored tastings throughout the day, it's first come first serve, so get there early if you'd like to take part.

Click here to see the masterclasses.

Justin will meet everyone outside the masterclass room at 3pm (at the end of the talk) I highly suggest this talk, if you like Aussie/Kiwi wines.

Tickets:

£15 (+ booking fee) from www.therealwinefair.com or £20 on the door.

Further information please contact [masked]

Please do not contact me regarding ticket sales.  I am not organising the event, I am just helping to organise a group to enjoy it.

 

WHAT STYLE OF EVENT IS IT:

If you've never been to a wine festival,  there will be lots of tables, each with around different 10 wines to try. In total probably around 600 wines.  You walk around, sampling the different wines and talking to the producers. It's very informal and not snobby at all - it's amazing!  I try to focus on one grape at a time, meaning that I will try a Sauvingon Blanc from each table. Or I try all the whites first, then come back and try the reds.

 

FREE TICKETS FOR OUR PAID MEMBERS:

I have 10 complimentary tickets for Bon Vivant's members (for more information and to join, visit www.tastour.com )

Please post a comment in the thread, if you would like to be entered to win.  In order to make it fair, we have allocated a certain number to old members who haven't had a free ticket lately.  I also keep 1 for a new member who have just joined our paid membership programme.  I try to distribute tickets according to use of membership, so if you haven't be able to come lately, I will do my best to give you a ticket.

Please note: I only have 10 free tickets and when these are gone, I will be sending you the link to buy a ticket.  Part of your membership is the arrangement of events like this, so even if you do not win a ticket this time, I hope you are able to join in the fun and support our sponsors (which of course helps us get more free tickets in the future.) If you have received a free ticket for a Decanter event previously, than you will not be eligable for one.

I'M NOT A PAID MEMBER, AM I STILL ABLE TO COME?:

Yes!!! This event is open for everyone.  Our paid members tend to be the most outgoing in the group, so rest assure you will have at least 10 friendly people to enjoy the day with.  This is one of the reasons we work so hard to obtain free tickets; so that you know the event will be well attended and you'll have a good night, with nice people.

Q: How do I get a free ticket?

We have one ticket specially reserved for a new member. Membership is £70 per year, which means you can enjoy all the other benefits of membership for £35!!!  For more information please visit http://tastour.com/member-registration/

    Hello!

    Thanks for signing up to the Real Wine Fair. Sorry I can't be there, but Justin and Johnathan - two well seasoned Tastourians will be there and I've provided the notes from our last organis wine tasting below, so you'll sure to have a fantastic time!

    Meet at 12pm - at the check-in desk where you give your name.

    Meet at 3pm - Outside the lecture hall. (The talk starts at 2pm) if you don't want to go you can meet the group outside the door at 3pm.

    Justin needs to leave at 5pm. You can deside as a group if you will stay for the popup supper club. This starts at 6, but I would line up around 5:30-5:45 to make sure I had a seat.

    It might be a good idea to have a taste or two of bubbles, and a few whites, then grab something to eat in the food section around 1:30, then start on the reds after lunch. But up to you. Last year the food was amazing!

    Please stop by Portugese Wine Story and say hello for me!!!

    Have fun and see you all soon,

    Kelly
