Eater Talks | How Natural Wine Changed the London Restaurant Industry

Join us at Ace Hotel Shoreditch on Wednesday 12 June

Eater Talks: How (natural) wine changed the London restaurant industry.

Wednesday, 12 June — 7:00 p.m.

Eater London and the Ace Hotel will continue their ongoing food and restaurant industry discussion series next month.

During the 90-minute discussion, sommeliers, wine experts, and restaurant owners in London will join Eater London editor Adam Coghlan for a conversation on how wine has changed the London restaurant industry.

One of the dominant restaurant formats in London devotes significant attention to wine and in many cases — in the trendiest areas of the city — specifically natural wine. A shift in restaurateurs’ focus has taken place over the last decade as wine lists have taken on a more international feel; where many have looked further afield than the traditional styles of the old world. With that, a new aesthetic has emerged, younger sommeliers have come to the fore, and, in turn, a new profile of wine enthusiast now exists.

At this Eater Talk, panelists Phil Bracey, from P. Franco, Bright, and Peg; Sunny Hodge from Diogenes the Dog; and Clare Lattin from Ducksoup and Littleduck the Picklery, will discuss how wine’s importance has changed, why natural wine developed such an appeal, and what’s next for one of the most rapidly developing and popular areas of the sector, especially in the event of Brexit.

This Eater London x Ace Hotel discussion will take place on Wednesday, 12 June from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Tickets cost £15, and include one drink.
