This morning I popped over to Farringdon to see John Baum of Winemakers Club in his new shop (it opened last Thursday), tucked underneath Holborn Viaduct. This is Extreme Wine. Bottles are from tiny producers: esoteric, unusual, challenging, exciting. There’s nothing under £10. The site was once home to an Oddbins. And the graffiti on the walls is a memorial to a noisy night last November when the site was broken into and used for a rave. I think I feel a Telegraph column coming on…In the meantime, if you’re in the area, John’s doing free tasting samples throughout August.
