The Wild Detectives, a funky bookstore in the Bishop Arts District in Dallas, will double as a natural wine bar on April 26, 27 and 28.

The pop-up natty wine event will be called Skin Contact, a collaboration with chef Josh Sutcliff and event coordinator Seth Brammer (of Sutcliff and Brammer Hospitality Group) and a natural wine store in Dallas called Bar & Garden. Sutcliff and Brammer are currently working on opening their own Dallas restaurant, reports our Michalene Busico.

Is there a market for natural wine in Dallas? The organizers of this event hope so.

"Skin Contact is an opportunity for Dallas to taste something new, and meet some of the incredible folks here in the North Texas area that work so hard to make those products available in our market," Brammer says in a statement.

Natural wine is made without chemicals and is often marked by its "funky" taste — which is both a compliment and a complaint. Bon Appétit did a whole podcast episode on natty wine.

Customers can buy glasses of natural wine at Skin Contact in Oak Cliff for $13 to $17. The wines will be picked by Dallas sommelier Jeffrey Gregory, formerly of FT33 and Rise No. 1. 

Sutcliff, who also worked at the now-shuttered FT33, plans to make snacks for $7 to $12.

Farmers from Profound Microfarms, Cartermere Farms and Texas Fungus will also be at the pop-up to discuss their sustainable agriculture practices, according to a press release.

Skin Contact will run from 3 p.m. to midnight April 26, 27 and 28 at Wild Detectives, 314 W. Eighth St., Dallas.
