Real Drinks is an award-winning drinks retailer founded by Nick Dolan in 2005 with extensive experience in Beer, Wine & Spirits and the wider drinks market, working with the best brewers & producers around the world.
The team enjoy discovering, creating and bringing exciting new drinks to the market. Working with breweries, vineyards, spirits producers, multiples and direct to consumers on the high-street, the business creates and shares the best products available.
Nick opened the first shop as Real Ale on Richmond Road, East Twickenham in 2005 to champion locally brewed, high-quality beers. Now with two further shops and Taprooms in Maida Vale (2017) and Notting Hill (2019), the business has evolved to incorporate any drink crafted with integrity and skill. The team have tasted and selected the best drinks available across every style and category, stocking a core range of over 400 beers, ciders, wines, and spirits in each shop, from small producers all over the world.
St Margarets Wine Society offers informal, friendly and informative wine tastings accompanied by lovely food.
Absolutely no wine expertise is required, and whether you are a complete novice or an experienced taster, there will be plenty to learn and enjoy.
The tastings are hosted by Tim Syrad, who has 25 years experience of running wine tastings, and currently runs the monthly Richmond and Teddington Wine Societies, as well as fine wine Masterclasses. He is a fervent advocate that wine is to be enjoyed without snobbery.
Each evening commences with a welcome glass of wine. At our first event we will learn about wine tasting technique, and quickly put this into practice on a series of six wines, interspersed with a three course meal. We will explore champagne vs sparkling wine, classic French and Italian wines, and some stunning wines from the New World - most of the wines we taste will retail between £10 and £50, and our first event will culminate with a star wine that retails at over £100 a bottle! We will explore how different wines go with food, and enjoy a superb meal.
St Margarets premier independent wine specialist. We also carry a great range of craft beers, ales, spirits and a selection of artisan Italian foods. Most importantly we provide great service, a friendly atmosphere and a stress free shopping experience.
