Sager + Wilde to open second bar

1st August, 2014 by Lucy Shaw

Husband and wife duo Michael and Charlotte Sager-Wilde are to open a second wine bar this month under the railway arches in Bethnal Green.

Named after the first grape ever planted in California, the 60-seater Mission will shine a light on Californian wine.

The pair have teamed up with Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman of Domaine de la Cote in the Santa Rita Hills to produce a Sager + Wilde own label Pinot Noir, which will be on pour by the glass and bottle at the bar.

In addition to wine, Mission will serve classic American cocktails, while head chef James De Jong formerly of The Drapers Arms in Islington will be whipping up Californian dishes with an Italian influence.

The bar, which will initially serve dinner and weekend brunch with a lunch offering to follow, will feature and outdoor terrace and a 30-seater private dining room.

Sager + Wilde opened in Hoxton last August and quickly caught the attention of wine lovers for its reasonably priced offering of old and rare vintage wines.

The 60-seater, no-reservations bar serves everything from California’s Ridge and Argentina’s Achaval Ferrer to Galician Godello and Rheingau Riesling for a small mark-up, meaning the more you pay, the better value you get on your bottle.

The bar sources wines from around 30 different suppliers, with a large proportion hailing from independent wine merchant and California specialist, Roberson.

“It’s an exciting time to be running a wine bar in London as there’s a lot of momentum behind the new-wave bars and we all want each other to succeed. We’re doing different things in different parts of town, so there’s room for us all,” Charlotte Sager-Wilde told db earlier this year.
