Two sisters, who grew up on a vineyard, have teamed up to trial their idea for the perfect cheese and wine spot for Londoners. Max and Kelly Tupper's two month pop-up in Brixton will be all about the holy trinity of cheese, meat and wine.
"We don’t pretend to be connoisseurs," says Kelly, "but [we do] want to serve interesting wines from small producer vineyards without baffling guests with a confusing list [and] create a relaxed setting for an indulgent and fun experience where pleasure is paramount but posturing is out."
To that end they'll be serving up a variety of cheese, charcuterie and pate served tapas style on handmade boards. That might be baked camembert, tomato, burrata and truffle oil salad or venison and chilli homemade pate. Each plate is aimed at two sharing.
For the wine, they've teamed up with Vinterest, an independent on-demand wine service and stockist, who supply wines from small, exciting and up-and-coming producers. And there'll also be local beers and ciders on the list too.
The aim is to open somewhere permanent, but for now they're trialling the concept by popping-up every weekend during November and December in Coldharbour Lane.
