So Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs vs. Montgueux, Meunier from the Coteaux Sud vs. Petite Montagne, Pinot Noir from Bouzy vs. the Aube. Plus as an alternate picture of terroir, Agrapart’s Complantée and Lassaigne’s terrific Coteaux Champenois blanc. Then two of the best rosés in Champagne, one blended and one saignée.

Why bother?

Pete's family were pioneers back in the 90's when they planted Northern Rhone varietals in this rough corner of California.
Thanks to their hard work with Sashi Moorman and Ruben Solorzano, the wines have a unique sense of place that defines a Syrah you cannot find anywhere else.

The Winery

Stolpman Vineyards lies on a coastal Limestone outcropping in the Ballard Canyon AVA of Santa Barbara County. All wines are fermented naturally without sulfur ensuring that a special fruit purity sings across the lineup.
 

What are we drinking

Rajat Parr

Rajat Parr Party

Meet and drink with one of our biggest icons

 

Why bother?

If it wasn't for Raj, Sager + Wilde wouldn't exist.

Rajat Parr has been a major influence in Michael Sager's life and career with Michael having worked for Raj at RN74 back in San Francisco and ever since the two have fostered an even stronger relationship. We were the first people to pour Raj's wines from Sandhi and Domaine de la Côte in the UK and it was for these wines that we decided to open Sager + Wilde Paradise Row (back then Mission) in 2013 with a focus on the New California.


What we are pouring

All wines Raj has ever made or been involved with plus a whole range of his favourites and rares from across the globe!

Bookings are limited and will fill up quickly.

Pedro Parra

Terroirist par excellence

 

Why bother?

"The very year we conceived Sager + Wilde was when working for Pedro in Argentina. It was one tough harvest and also my first. Learning from such a larger than life persona and seeing how humbly Pedro is sharing his knowledge and passion made us want to bring this passion to London. It was there and then, in Cauquenes, in the very southern part of Chile, where we dreamt up our first drinks list for Sager + Wilde, sitting in the modest kitchen of Pedro's farmhouse after the long hours in the winery. 

I am ecstatic to have Pedro with us on the 6th!"

Michael Sager


What wines are we drinking?

All of the wines Pedro is involved with.

Clos de Fous (Chile), Pedro Parra y Familia (Chile and France) and Altos los Hormigas (Argentina).

Why bother?

As part of the new wave sweeping through the wine world some regions stand out more than others.  The Swartland Independent Producers and self-appointed appellation has become synonymous with the new wave scene in South Africa, home to some of the most interesting winemakers in the country. 

Bryan MacRobert is a member of the Swartland Independent Producers and will be with us on Monday night to talk about his wines and his philosophies.  Bryan makes wine which is very true to the Swartland style – excellent fruit from some of the coolest parts of the region, minimal intervention and judicious use of oak combine to make genuinely interesting and delicious wines.

Who's Cider you on?

Come and celebrate the Native Wine of England
 

Why bother?

Few restaurants have a good cider list, or even scratch the surface of how incredible cider can be.

In the 17th Century it was titled 'the Native Wine of England', and a new breed of cider makers are now rediscovering it's finer side.

Felix from Fine Cider will be with us here, sharing his knowledge and passion for cider from three of the best makers on the planet, Tom Oliver, James Marsden and Martin Harris.

Why bother?

Clemens' vineyards are located in the village of Feuersbrunn in Wagram. Although Wagram’s reputation as a wine producing region is less established than Kamptal or Wachau, it is home to some of the best sites for Riesling and Grüner Veltliner.

Clemens also grows Grüner Veltliner and Riesling on the renowned Pfaffenberg vineyard situated between Wachau and Kremstal in an extremely small production.

Sybille Kuntz Winemaker Party

Come and drink with one of the Germany's best

Why bother?

Sybille Kuntz and Markus Kuntz-Riedlin are two of the leaders of the Mosel's Riesling renaissance.
Establishing a new Estate headed by a woman in the traditional German wine industry has been a challenge. However their dry and refined wines have made a splash on the international wine scene.

The vineyard plantings are between 40-80 years old and cultivated since 1990 under ecological conditions. The couple adheres to the saying, that wine is made in the vineyard not in the winery. Their focus on low yield and their commitment to producing pure and natural Rieslings have resulted in superb grapes.

What we are pouring:

Auslese Feinherb 2011, Beerenauslese 2011, Dreistern, Goldkapsel 2003, Kabinett Trocken 2013 and 2014, Qba Trocken 2014, Scharz 2007, Spätlese Trocken 2011 and 2013, Trockenbeerenauslese 2011 and 1999.

Les Enfants Sauvages

  • Sager + Wilde Hackney Road

'LES ENFANTS SAUVAGES' WINEMAKER PARTY
Meet Nikolas and Carolin Bantlin
 

Why bother?

Carolin and Nikolas were looking for a house in the South of France, not a vineyard. She was an architect and he was running the family’s leather processing business. They visited a property with 8 hectares of vines and fell instantly in love with it. They settled in Fitou permanently and Carolin took an oenology course.

Initially they were selling their grapes but after interning with Olivier Pithon, Carolin and Nikolaus agreed that it was time to make their own wine. Their wines speak of the 'garrigue' and the sun but with an unexpected freshness.

What we are pouring

Cool Moon, 2015 Che Chauvio, 2013 Enfant Sauvage, 2013 Roi de lizards, 2009 Enfant Sauvage, 2007 Enfant Sauvage and Muscat de Rivesaltes

La Stoppa Supper

  • Sager + Wilde Paradise Row

LA STOPPA - Italy knows best
Meet Elena Pantaleoni

 

Why bother?

I'm super stoked to be hosting this event with Elena.
Sipping on a cheeky glass of la Stoppa after a long day is a guilty pleasure of mine...

La Stoppa is a historic estate with its vineyards stretching down the slopes of Val Trebbiola, not far from the river Trebbia, in the province of Piacenza. The property consists of an ancient medieval tower and 58 acres of land, 28 of which are woods with oak, chestnut, and locust trees.

The winery is led by Elena Pantaleoni (a mentor to Arianna Occhipinti when she was a student nearby), a dedicated, intelligent and passionate woman who, together with the oenologist Giulio Armani, have dedicated the property to organic farming and traditional winemaking methods.

The combination of poor soil and old vines lead to naturally low yields and allow for minimal work in the cellar, where the process is one of guiding a wine to bottle rather than manipulation.


What we are pouring by the glass?

Malvasia Passito Vigna Volta 2009, Macchiona IGT 2007, Malvasia Ageno IGT 2011, Trebbiolo Rosso 2014, Trebbiolo Rosso Frizzante.

What's for Supper?

Food will be served from our BRAND NEW À LA CARTE MENU, choose from small and large plates and our big sharing dishes...

Check out our new Menu

You can book a table for dinner, or just a glass at the bar, completely up to you. Just let us know when booking.

Dinner is well tasty though, just saying...

Le Soula

Le Soula

  • Sager + Wilde Paradise Row

Le Soula Wine Supper
 

Why bother?

I was hooked with Le Soula since my first visit to the high altitude vineyards in the foothills of the Pyrénées. The sense of place these wines convey is just staggering.

Gérard Gauby, the Roussillon's most highly respected vigneron, had become aware of the potential of vineyards at higher altitude to produce wines with real finesse. In 2001 he formed a partnership with his English wine importers, Roy Richards and Mark Walford, to create Le Soula.


What wines are we drinking?

Le Soula's full range of white, red and orange wines and ... a bunch of older and hard to find vintages, all priced very keenly.

Mark Walford, founder of Le Soula, will be there to talk about the wines. You can come by for just a glass or full dinner.


What about food? 

You can eat as much or as little as you would like from our brand new à la carte menu.

Winemaker night with Ozge Caymaz

 

Why bother?

With a young team of Turkish winemakers, Kayra’s main goal is to explore the native varietals of Turkey in different areas of Anatolia.

The head winemaker with us is the lovely Ozge Caymaz.

 

What wines is Ozge pouring

The weird and wonderful wine made from Okuzgozu and Bogazkere grapes, all by the glass and in fligths.
