Wine has been enjoyed as early as 7000 BC and has never gone out of style, remaining the most popular alcoholic drink in the UK. You can choose between Red, Rosé, White or Sparkling and all of these can be enjoyed in different ways. Sure, you can still grab a cheap bottle from the off license, but it will never be the same as enjoying a cold glass of extra special wine in the bustling streets of London. Wine also complements food better than any other beverage, making it a popular choice amongst restaurant goers. Sure, Britain might not be the host of fantastic vineyards like those in France and New Zealand, but we are good at collecting the best from all over the world and putting it in one place for you to enjoy. We’ve done something similar here, collecting the best spots to enjoy these wines from all over South London and put them all in one place, this blog.
