About

I am a 43 year old living in Nottingham. Maybe like me, you have become disillusioned by the quality and variety of most wine that is sold in the UK. I am not anti supermarket or wine store but there must be more out there. Please join me on my journey to find decent good value wine. At the same time I want to find out more about storage, availability and discover some of the lesser known wine growing areas. I have nothing to do with the wine industry, as it happens I am a middle manager in a financial services company.

    Mike,
    During diner we looked with the whole family to your report of new year. Really nice report and well written. We really love it. Great pictures as well, particulary the one in the open air museum.

  3. Hi Mike,

    I just wanted to bring to your attention an Australian wine tasting evening happening at Made in Camden (NW1) this month. I would very much appreciate it if you could spread the word about the evening perhaps via your social media platforms or website. The restaurant is now featured in the 2012 Good Food Guide, so we really are growing in popularity! Below, is the press release for the evening and please do not hesitate to contact me if you require any other information.

    With Kind Regards

    Wine in Camden… wine tasting events at Made in Camden

    Following a summer break, Made in Camden and Bibendum Wine Ltd present their next wine tasting event – Aussie Road Trip on Wednesday 7 September.

    So the big land down under is calling but you’ve not quite made the once-in-a-lifetime trip – how about a 3 week holiday for a small fortune… maybe you’ve been and fallen in love… maybe you’re homesick… one reason or another, why not join us for an express ‘on the budget’ tour around Australia’s most celebrated wine regions – Barossa, Margaret River and many more…

    Wine in Camden gives the opportunity to explore new wines, or taste old favourites, in fun and informal surroundings. Each month we look at a range of wines, some from the restaurant’s list, loosely arranged around a theme and accompanied by delicious samples from the Made in Camden menu.

    The evenings are a great chance to socialise, have fun and discover more about wine and food/wine matching. No experience is necessary but be quick – they always sell out!

    NOTES TO EDITORS

    About Made in Camden

    Made in Camden has received rave reviews since opening in October 2010, thanks to the work of our Head Chef Josh Katz and his team. Josh cut his teeth with the much-loved and respected Ottolenghi empire, and is now making a name for himself as one of London’s most exciting Head Chefs. An instant hit with London’s passionate food blogging community, Made in Camden is quickly growing from an undiscovered gem to one of North London’s most talked-about new eateries.

    Since opening, Made in Camden has enjoyed sold-out wine and gin tasting nights, and have plenty more exciting events on the horizon. With an extensive cocktail, beer and wine list, Made in Camden is more than a unique dining experience, it’s a great local bar too.

    As the name suggests, we’re proud to be a part of Camden’s heritage – Josh grew up in the area, as did the restaurant’s designer, and we’re the only local stockist of all Camden Town Brewery beers, whilst nearby Bibendum supplies the wine. We’re also next door to one of Camden’s most legendary arts venues, the Roundhouse.
