As well as superb winemakers exhibiting at the fair, we are delighted to announce that the following companies will be helping satiate the appetites of hungry Real Wine Fair visitors selling a delicious variety of food:
TWIST is a Kitchen and Fusion Tapas Bar in the heart of Marylebone. Constantly exploring new ingredients and recipes from around the world, their kitchen is a meeting place of cuisines and traditions in a tapas style. Twist’s vision is to keep everything simple and authentic, without too much manipulation! They don’t like machines, nor artificial food and their aim is to use products that have been made with hands, love and passion.
Twist came to life from the creativity and curiosity of Head Chef/Co-owner, Eduardo Tuccillo, a genuine Neapolitan fascinated by food from an early age. Eduardo was born in Amalfi and his culinary roots are still there, but professionally he’s been lucky, travelling and working from New York to South Africa. He wanted to develop a menu, which would both reflect that journey and allow him to continue exploring. The tapas style was perfect for this, not only because it’s a really free format, but each table’s order is its own unique composition, its own voyage of discovery.
LA COUR DE RÉMI is a small hotel with a fantastic natural wine bar just 1 hour south of Calais in Bermicourt. They will be bringing the flavours of Normandy to The Real Wine Fair offering dishes based on quality, seasonal products sourced locally. All cooked to perfection!

WOZA make authentic South African style charcuterie from premium British ingredients. There is a long, rich history of producing charcuterie in South Africa, ever since early settlers used this method to preserve meat in the hot, dry climate. Today, the king of South African charcuterie is biltong – prime cuts of cured, spiced and air-dried beef or venison.
Three flavours will be on offer at The Real Wine Fair to complement the wonderful wines on show: Original Beef – West Country beef bavette seasoned in Woza’s classic toasted coriander and pepper spice blend; Wild Venison – West Country wild venison: deep, rich, complex flavours with hints of coriander seed and juniper berry and Cape Cinnamon – a uniquely spiced beef biltong which was inspired by the South East Asian-influenced cuisine of the Cape province. Woza in Zulu is an invitation to ‘come with me’. We invite all meat lovers in the UK and beyond to come with us and try proper South African charcuterie!
