Square Meal Review of Sager & Wilde ?

Encouraged by the success of their wine-driven pop-up in Shoreditch, Michael and Charlotte Sager-Wilde have gone permanent with this venture in a one-time East End boozer. Wooden blinds, subtle retro-industrial lights and architectural salvage are used to create a stylish den for design-literate oenophiles – check out the bar counter made from Victorian cast iron and glass-brick pavement insets. To drink, anticipate a daily line-up of top-notch bin ends and unusual appellations available by the bottle or glass. Prices start at £27.50 for a Sicilian Perricone red to accompany Italian charcuterie platters, while £6 gets a glass of good-to-find Txakoli de Getari by Bodegas Rezabal – a complex Spanish Basque white that cries out for one of the owners’ signature cheese toasties. A trio of craft beers also puts in an appearance, but Sager & Wilde is really all about enjoying fine wine.

    Following a former acclaimed pop-up site, Charlotte and Michael Sager- Wilde opened their eponymous wine bar in late August 2013 to a steady flow of positive press. Wine tasting buddies S, Z & A have been waxing lyrical about it for so long that I finally took a deep breath and headed East. Food is not the primary focus here but that didn't stop all the morsels that crossed our table from being excellent. It is more about the wine though. I would challenge anyone to find a more well rounded list of wines by the glass in London. Yes, there are places that do lots by the glass but you are usually fighting your way through a tide of mediocrity to dig out a winner. Here they are all good. It is evident that each one has been selected with such care and attention that you're unlikely to ever pick a dud. The four of us decided early on that a definite strategy was required in working our way through the list without falling over...

    Sybaricious :: Sager & Wilde

    Anyone who knows me will tell you that I have what could be described as a 'slightly' irrational fear of East London. It all stems back to two incidents almost a decade ago, one where I was stupid enough to wear heels on New Year's Eve in Hoxton, sprained my ankle on the way there and spent the evening sat with my foot in a bucket of ice whilst people talked over my head and the second being a rather nasty "you're not cool enough to be here" type slur in a bar that shall remain nameless. The upshot was that I was left thinking, sod you East London, you're a devil to get to from South West London anyway and London's a big old place with plenty to do and see. It is therefore a rare gem that can attract me across the threshold of the Borough of Tower Hamlets and Sager & Wilde is that gem.
