While Kensington Quarters is best known for its whole animal butchery, its general manager and beverage director is Tim Kweeder, one of the city’s top wine experts (we said as much in 2015’s Best of Philly and last month’s “The New Faces of Philly Wine”).

And on Saturday, July 22nd, he’ll be pouring some extra special bottles and taking over KQ’s upstairs event space, transforming it into a pop-up wine bar.

For Exile at KQ: A Wine Pop-Up, Kweeder has selected intriguing vintages from regions of the Italian and French Rivieras, where the Rolling Stones recorded much of their acclaimed album Exile on Main Street in 1971.

The wine will flow from 9 p.m. until 12 a.m.
