The Ely Wine Bar Turns 20: Erik Robson tells us the story

Twenty years ago the wine scene in Dublin and Ireland was, with one exception, well established. The missing element was a Wine Bar.

When it opened the Ely Wine Bar, at Ely Place in Dublin 2, revolutionised our awareness of wine, how we could drink wine on a night out and, importantly, how a range of wines might be served ‘by the glass’. Indeed, it was super to find wines that weren’t oxidized and served in grubby paris goblets by publicans who really didn’t want to know about wine in the first place.

Erik and Michelle Robson opened the Ely Wine Bar twenty years ago with no guarantee of success whatsoever. There have been tough times along the way.

Today the Ely operates out of a number of engaging outlets, is highly respected and runs some of the most innovative and important wine events in Ireland.

In this podcast Erik Robson brings us through the years of developing the Ely experience. Listen Here or wherever you listen to your podcasts! KevinEcock’s WinePod
