I’m back this weekend, bringing wine to Maidenhead town centre. Yep, on the High Street, so if you’ve missed me in my old stomping ground, come along and see me on Sunday 8th May 11-4pm – the usual wine pop-up format with superb wines to taste and buy (a little more on those below). Not only is the sun set to shine (unlike my last few chilly outings), I won’t be on my lonesome, infact, I’m going to be alongside a whole host of other local food producers as part of the relatively new street food market, Eat on the High Street, which means while you top up on wine, you can choose your lunch from a whole array of different cuisines, grab a seat and sit and soak up the atmosphere (and sunshine, I hope). Dinerama/ Spitalfields Market, eat your heart out (but think more suburban and sedate, with less hipsters)!
Fabulous local photographer, social media whizz and blogger Maidenhead Mum sums up the first Eat On The High Street perfectly (it also made the ‘Tiser), and now that there are seats and tables, it’ll make the ideal place to meet friends for lunch, every second Sunday of the month. As the first two events have lead to the High Street thrumming with diners, I’m really looking forward to returning to my original pop-up location and hopefully seeing many of my Maidenhead customers on Sunday. Having sought out perhaps every discerning wine drinker in Maidenhead who actually come into the town centre on a normal, nothing-really-happening kind of Saturday, I know that there are many many more Maidonians who would love to have a friendly, knowledgeable, local independent wine merchant, willing to deliver wines from a carefully curated list, i.e. me, to their door in Maidenhead. So, bring your friends, spread the Eat on the High Street word, and let’s get this town drinking great wine and food!
As for the wines open to taste? Well, what with the sunshine, I thought I’d bring you two of my best selling Spanish numbers, both perfect for barbecues… Valencian red, El Bon Homme (Monastrell, Cab Sauv blend) and fresh, white Rioja, Las Orcas Decenio Viura, come and taste! If you’d like something specific, let me know as there’s only so much stock I can bring or I’ll of course be taking orders for delivery next week. Can’t make it or want your wine in time for Friday wine o’clock? Order here for delivery or pop a later event in the diary (Plus, the next Eat On The High Street will be a Queen’s Birthday Street Party in Maidenhead, on 12th June).
p.s. I’m working on the ‘by the glass’ angle at EOTHS, of course I’ll top up the wine tasting thimble of any customer to go with lunch, particularly if you’ve read to the end of this blog post. 🙂
p.p.s The Fat Fox Burgers, Paneer wraps, Little Reds Pizza and Como en Casa’s Argentinian Empanadas all come highly recommended!
p.p.p.s If that’s not enough to get you in to town, EOTHS is a collaboration alongside Shabbytique Vintage Fair which will also be on the High Street on Sunday – oh, and of course, Maidenhead’s H&M opened this week!
