It was urban escape this month, with a visit to Renegade Wines, the urban winery in Bethnal Green which is making news, literally, with great write ups about its wines in Metro and in The Independent (you heard it here first, because we are in the know!). It was a sunny, warm evening and we enjoyed the hospitality of Warwick Smith, the founder and brainchild of Renegade, with its leading edge wine making techniques which produce some stunning results. We tasted a range of sparkling, whites and reds made from some of the best grapes from around the world, most coming from small, organic vineyards. We loved the Sauvignon Blanc, the English Sparkling, and the Cabernet from the barrel – it was not even bottled, and we wanted more! A most unusual evening, enjoyed by all, with thanks to Roslyn Byfield for some of the pictures.
