A luxury pop-up wine merchant - built out of two 20 ft shipping containers - is set to launch on London's Southbank.

VinoriumPop-up wine merchant the VinoriumThe luxury wine merchant and winebar will open on London’s Southbank on October 15.

The Vinorium will have over 2,000 wines to buy and sample, and will house the UK's first Enomatic flute machine for sparkling wine, from October 15 until January 4.

There will also be Bordeaux masterclasses on offer with Vinorium founder Stuart McCloskey.

Each bottle on offer will have a QR code, allowing customers to search for more information on the bottle in question. The specially designed transparent Perspex building will also have space on the roof for 12 heated tables where customers can enjoy a glass of wine.

Wines can be sampled from three Enomatic machines which charge from 70p per sample and change wines daily. The most expensive bottle of wine offered at The Vinorium Pop-Up is a Melchior of 2009 Château Pontet Canet at £4,195.

Masterclasses including a Suckfizzle Vertical and a Château Pontet Canet Masterclass will be hosted by McCloskey and prices will range from £50 - £150 per ticket.

McCloskey said: "The Vinorium Pop-Up was all but a wonderful dream a year ago but we have made it into reality by transforming two 20ft shipping containers into a luxury mobile wine merchant and wine bar. It will have an entirely bespoke interior fit made out of clear Perspex and the wine will be available to drink in or take home. We will be offering a chance for people to try some exquisite and UK exclusive wines during our masterclasses."

Z&B Vintners, founders of the Vinorium, hold £11million of stock including world exclusives. Wines are available in single bottles (and cases) priced £10 to £26,000+ with vintages ranging from 1945 to now.
