Riding Wine Co. offers natural wine produced by family-owned, independent artisanal wine makers. The concept of the business was borne from the co-founders travelling across Europe on their motorcycle searching for winemakers who craft real and honest wine. The new natural wine shop and bar at Dickens Yard aims to bring this unique experience to Ealing where customers will have the option of buying wine to takeaway or drink in.
Steve Kirwan, Operations Director, St George West London, said:
"We are delighted to welcome Riding Wine Co. to Dickens Yard. It offers a fantastic concept celebrating expert craftspeople from around the world and bringing unique wines to Ealing.
"Riding Wine Co. complements and enhances the existing mix of shops, restaurants and lifestyle brands at Dickens Yard and forms part of our vision to create a vibrant new destination at the heart of Ealing."
Vikram Mertia, Co-Founder at Riding Wine Co., said:
"We are extremely excited to be opening a shop and bar in our local neighbourhood and we are looking forward to sharing some great wine and fun times together.
"Our opening event will be on 24th May, with lots of exciting wines and offers on the day and throughout the weekend.
"Over the summer, we will be holding a large number of events, like Meet the Winemakers and Winey Friday, so follow us on Instagram or check out our website for details."
Dickens Yard is a new destination in Ealing comprising 700 new homes, a range of public spaces and an array of lifestyle brands now open including Balans Soho Society, Triyoga, No.17 bar and restaurant, Navrtar, The Skinny Kitchen, GAIL's Bakery, Jigsaw, Tonkotsu, The Kumon Centre, Content by Terence Conran, Charlotte's W5, Pasta Remoli, Blo Bar and Benham & Reeves.
Dickens Yard is playing a significant role in the wider regeneration of Ealing ahead of the arrival of the Elizabeth Line at Ealing Broadway station. The expanded frequency of the Elizabeth line will see commutes reduced and journeys made easier via new, high-capacity trains. The new station will halve journey times to central London, with travel to Bond Street in 11 minutes, Liverpool Street in 18 minutes and Canary Wharf in 25 minutes. Heathrow Airport terminals two and three will be just 14 minutes away via the new line.
