Wine List Confidential: Sager + Wilde

Sager + Wilde’s Hackney Road wine venue is one of the most innovative and fun in London, and has helped to shift the landscape towards a different style of wine bar since it opened in 2013.

A big love for California and Burgundy is evident throughout, with many wines that you simply won’t be able to find in many other places. With virtuous small plates including roasted brussel sprouts, hazelnuts and soft cheese on toast, alongside muhammara with pomegranate molasses, or toasties such as hot jalapeno and Cheddar, the food offer shows curiosity and is generally wine-friendly.

Although taking one’s wine is possible (corkage is a very reasonable £25), it would be somewhat like hanging one’s A-Level
art project in the Louvre, given the careful curation of this list, laid out, entirely in capital

letters, by region, hemisphere and colour (including ‘ORANGE’).

CURRENT POSITION ON WINE LIST CONFIDENTIAL: 23

CURRENT WINE LIST CONFIDENTIAL OVERALL SCORE: 91.8
