A joint tasting with Wayward Wine Shop & Bar & Modal Wines
May is real wine month, so we've asked two of our favourite wine nerds to join us for an evening to share some of their vast knowledge and more importantly, a selection of their mighty fine wines.
Steve (Wayward Wines) and Nic (Modal Wines) will be joining us on the last Friday in May and each will be bringing with them a selection of 5 wines from their expansive collection to crack open and share with us on the night. Discussing why we choose the wines we do, educating on terms such as 'sulphites' and 'low intervention' and hopefully de-bunking the myth that you don't get hangovers from drinking natural wines.
Local wine shop and bar, modelled on the caves a vin of Paris, Wayward Wines specialise in the wines of Italy, France and the rest of Europe all with a focus on small, independent producers. Steve has been our go to wine guy since day one and has helped shape the way we think about wine production and farming. If you've not visited the shop yet, it is a must for any wine fans in Leeds. http://waywardwines.co.uk/
London based importer Modal Wines specialises in small-batch, distinctive wines from independent winemakers across Europe. All the producers in his portfolio make wines with a respect for nature with as little interference in the vineyards and cellar as possible. Every wine that Nic has picked for our menu has blown us away and we can't wait to see what he has in store for us on the night! https://www.modalwines.com/
We heard that as well as collecting wines, both like to collect music too so we're hoping they might bring a bag of records with them along with the bottles of wine
