La Petite Provence @ The Folly
Until the end of August, The Folly—a large restaurant and bar right by Monument with very modern design and decor—is hosting a “pop up” in one of its sections. It’s called “La Petite Provence”, and, unsurprisingly, they’re selling wines from Provence, principally rosé. You can try a flight of wines for relatively cheap—£10 for four, or £10 for three with tiny plates of food—or you can go for the whole hog tasting experience for £19, or £23 with food (cured meats, bread, cheese).
In the full “sensory” experience, you’re blindfolded, and then given wines you haven’t seen to taste—and guess what it is. Having tasted them, you’re given scents to smell, food to eat, or little tastes of liquid. You’re then instructed to taste the wine again, after this contrasting tidbit. Invariably, it is a strikingly different experience the second time round, sometimes (e.g. after lemon juice) quite shockingly so.
While the pop up is still going there will be meet the maker sessions, and more special tasting events at various points—see http://www.thefollybar.co.uk/offer for more info.Share This Post
