Experimental Group to open Covent Garden outlet

Published:  23 September, 2013

The team behind the Experimental Cocktail Club outlets is to open a wine-focused concept in London.

La Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels Seven Dials is the latest opening from the Experimental Group, which has cocktail outlets in New York, Paris, London and Ibiza. The new location will open in winter 2013 in Seven Dials, Covent Garden.

The wine bar will serve lunch and dinner and the wine list will avoid  "mainstream wines". Wines are to come from small producers and the list will change frequently. 

According to a press statement, "the wines on the menu work in harmony with nature to bring clean and tantalising wines from hand-laboured vineyards to the glass. The dynamic wine list offered at Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels will change frequently due to the limited supply from small producers".

The wine list has been developed by Nic Smith, wine director and sommelier for Experimental Group.

Wines include Rieslings from Egon Müller in the Mosel, Germany; Assyrtiko made by the biodynamic winery of Hatzidakis in Santorini, Greece; and wines from the slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily.

The lunch and dinner menus will take inspiration from French flavours while incorporating ingredients from local British suppliers. The menu will be designed to pair with the wines offered.
