A Natural Pairing: The Butcher’s Wife and a Drunken Farmer

SPREADING THE VIN NATURE LOVE

On top of curating wines that pair well with The Butcher’s Wife’s gluten-free cuisine, Drunken Farmer’s focus on natural wines ties in harmoniously with the restaurant’s gut-friendly philosophy – one that founder Chua has recently enamoured herself with. “This offering would be in perfect synergy with the new menu soon to be put out by our head chef Mariana, a young, gastronomy-trained chef who fell in love with wild fermentation at The Slow Bakery in Rio and has never looked back since. Her inventive cooking style that makes you forget you’re eating gluten free paired with Eduardo’s selection of wines that are full of life will make The Butcher’s Wife a real champion for gut health.

As The Butcher’s Wife’s wine programme evolves, Bayo sees a growing demand in diners looking for orange wines, something he plans to expand on as he grows the restaurant’s wine list. “The diners here have proved to be more curious drinkers who can appreciate a bit more funk, and have been receptive to more adventurous, off-menu selections that I’ve recommended,” he notes, expounding that diners can also expect to see more uncommon offerings on the retail selection.

Staying true to its travelling natural wine bar, consultancy and importer form, next up for Drunken Farmer and Bayo is to continue cleaning up the wine lists of restaurants under the Spa Esprit Group like retro-future Southeast Asian diner Ding Dong, and modern Argentinian chophouse boCHINche; and curating their wine programmes to be more befitting of their cuisine while focusing on labels that are made responsibly, bespoke and clean. 

Following the kick-off of the natural wine retail format at The Butcher’s Wife, the retail to-go concept might be replicated to cater for the neighbourhoods the other SEG F&B outlets are located in, so wine lovers can rejoice in the fact that a bottle of natural wine is always in close reach.
