On Sunday March 1, London Shell Co. co-founder Harry Lobek will be celebrating the oncoming spring season by cracking open last year's best pétillant naturel wine and serving it to anyone lucky enough to get themselves aboard the Prince Regent.
Pét nat is a slightly lesser-known type of sparkling wine that's really made a headway recently into all of London's trendiest restaurants. But that's not to say it’s a "new" beverage by any means. In fact, pét nat actually predates champagne and was the one of the very first ever wine created with bubbles. Pétillant naturel wines are produced using the "ancestral method", also known as "rurale" or "artisanale", which means it's bottled before its first fermentation is complete, with carbon dioxide produced by the natural sugars in bottled grape liquid.
This two hour cruise will give you the chance to sample a range of pétillant naturel while dining on sharing plates and salty snacks including Devon crab rice pancakes, anchoiade, deep-fried whitebait., and smoked eel and celeriac remoulade.
The evening costs £25 a head including the welcome drink and dinner, with additional glasses of bubbles starting from £6. Booking is essential.
