Wapping Project moves into wine retailing

Published:  23 July, 2008

Award-winning east London art and dining space, the Wapping Project, is to branch out into wine retailing.

The venue, which is housed in the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, and which is described by its owner, Jules Wright, as a singular combination of challenging contemporary art and performance, fine food and wine and inspiring architecture', is to make its all-Australian restaurant wine list available for consumers to purchase by the case.

The Project's Sophie Persson told Harpers that the move into wine retail had been a long-term plan' for Wright - an Australian theatre director - and that the wines would be Australian and a little bit different; special'.

The current list takes in 14 wines from producers such as Echo Point, Plantagenet, Leeuwin Estate and Mount Horrocks. Initially, they will be available for order through the Project's bar, but they will also be available online at the end of July, when the Project's website goes live.
