The Wondering Wine Company
Founded in 2011 and described by London’s Evening Standard as Bibendum’s “cooler younger sister”, The Wondering Wine Company is our mobile wine bar business and you can find its fleet of vintage Citroen H Vans and slick, modern Airstreams everywhere from street food festivals to international sporting and musical events.
The Big Idea
We are full of ideas at Bibendum, and the best ones often come to us whilst sitting in the sunshine with a glass of something cold and white in our hands.
One of these Eureka moments came in summer 2010 when we wondered if it would be possible to bring the very best of the on trade – amazing wine served in wonderful stemware by highly trained staff - to the outdoor catering arena.
The answer was ‘yes’ and The Wondering Wine Company was born, hitting the road for the first time in early 2011.
The Wondering Wine Company’s approach is to tailor the customer experience to each individual event. At a smaller street-food get-together, we might just park up one of the old H Vans and serve away. At larger venues and arenas, we can build bespoke bar areas to serve as many thirsty people as possible in a short space of time.
We love working at events – large or small, local or international. As long as there is a crowd of thirsty wine lovers on hand, we’re happy to be there
Why we are different
In recent years, the mobile food scene has exploded as the trend for street food scene has crossed the Atlantic to the UK. However, in our experience, the wine offering at events doesn’t always match up. That’s where The Wondering Wine Company come in.
Put simply we serve brilliant wines – and put equal emphasis on both the product and the service. We use fantastic quality govino glasses and ensure all our staff are highly trained to provide a brilliant customer experience. In short, we’re everything you could want from a wine bar – just on wheels.
This year you could have found The Wondering Wine Company at events including the Cheltenham Jazz Festival, Royal Ascot, all major match days at Twickenham, The Real Food Festival, Jamie OIiver’s Feastival and Prim & Proper, a small street food pop up near our offices in Primrose Hill.
