Wine Shops in London or near


Recommended Posts

Hi all, I am going to be in London for one day in a couple of weeks. I was hoping to find a good wine shop with affordable prices. I know about the Berry Bros. type places already, was looking to find more of a large volume discount type shop. There are several '96 vintage champagnes not available here in US ( yet) that I hope to find.

TIA

Check out Jancis Robinson's list of wine merchants, which is not limited to the UK. Actually, best to first check your customs limit, your/your entourage's weight lifting capabilities... have fun!

Don't know about discount, but FWIW El Vino (a wine bar and restaurant near the Inns of Court, frequently mentioned in Rumpole stories) sells lots of wine, etc. You have to wear a coat and perhaps a tie to get into El Vino IIRC.

I'm hollywood and I approve this message.

Still no Pol Roger '96 vintage. Any help??

Mmm, Pol Roger. I have a bottle of white foil that I must drink, thanks for reminding me.

www.everwine.co.uk advertise the 1996 in various sizes.

12 x 75cl £383.05

3 x 150cl £295.16

1 x 500cl £290.37

I think they are internet-only though, and oop North, so I guess you need the help of a friendly local.
