About Salon Wine Store
In November last year, Nicholas Balfe and his team opened the Salon Wine Store, stocked to the brim with low intervention, artisan wines, spanning the new and old world. Guests will be able to drink instore, take home or bring bottles into Salon’s downstairs bar and restaurant situated directly next door, for a small corkage fee. The kitchen has created a menu of dishes to accompany the extensive new wine list including, Smoked aubergine, black onion and seed crackers; Slow cooked rabbit ragu, with house made pappardelle; and Girolles, roast chestnut mushrooms, fresh coco beans, and Berkswell. Salon have worked closely with their suppliers, Indigo, Les Caves de Pyrene and Under the Bonnet Wines to curate a vast collection of over 100 sparkling, red and white wines for the store, all with a focus on low intervention, small scale producers who farm their parcels with care and hand harvest their grapes. Bottles start at £10, including La Merlettaie from the Marche region in Italy, as well as selling some more interesting wines including a Mother Rock Orange wine from South Africa’s Swartland and a Nas Del Gegant from Sanaüja in Spain. The Salon team will be on hand, well versed to recommend bottles to suit every taste, and a handful of tables and chairs will be outside in the market, for guests to enjoy a glass or two. Looking ahead to the new year, Salon will also be inviting wine experts and producers to the store for talks, tastings and collaborations.
