A new Greek Wine tradition

A new spirit of authenticity is emerging from Greece, as a next generation of winemakers return to forgotten terroirs and local grapes, to express powerful, progressive sentiments. We have chosen three young wines from our recent travels that express a new kind of tradition. In the UK for the first time, they are a taste of what is to come over the next few years.

Under the Arches Supper Club

On 1st June the timber merchants will leave the yard and guests will be seated under the beautiful arches of Maltby Street Market. One of London’s top chefs, Ramael Scully (Head Chef at Nopi), will be working with some of Farmdrop’s finest local-to-London produce, creating dishes with big flavours and mind-blowing technique. Maltby&Greek will be pairing Scully’s menu with an exclusive selection of artisan Greek wines from indigenous and international varieties, grown under the Mediterranean sun in Santorini, Crete and other places across Greece.

The Food 

Chef Ramael Scully is an expert in composition, renowned for pulling together complex ingredients in a thoughtful way, and with big flavours. The menu will be a celebration of British spring-time staples (asparagus, mackerel, lamb, wild garlic and elderflower) but with some of Scully’s favourite ingredients like miso, mint, and tamarind. Guests can expect some food theatre with lots of fermenting, dehydrating, smoking, and powdering.
