A well-known wine bar with several outposts throughout London, Vinoteca was started in 2005 by three founders with a passion for good food and even better wines . Although the Farringdon location is the original, the Soho outpost is our favourite. Wine lovers can explore their vast menu, which features a changing list of 25 wines available by the glass, not to mention 285 wines on the list.

Tucked away across from a tiny leafy park by Smithfield Meat Market, Vino & Vino is real find for those that love Italian wines. No list of London’s best wine bars would be complete without it. The wines are divided into regions and the wine list features copious tasting notes to help you discover something new. The relaxed atmosphere means the staff are friendly, very helpful and always on hand to make a few suggestions.

The 10 Cases

 

The 10 Cases bills itself as an unpretentious bistrot with wine as its focus (or a bistrot du vin for the more sophisticated of you) and this is exactly what it is. Centrally located round the corner from Covent Garden, it’s a fabulous spot that never gets old. The name comes from the fact that they only ever buy 10 cases of the wines on their list so they’re constantly offering something different when you visit.

Although relatively new (it only opened last year), Enoteca Rabezzana has already garnered itself a legion of devoted fans who will swear to it being London’s best wine bar. As the name suggests, Rabezzana is a high-end Italian enoteca (wine-shop/ bar). The food menu is notable for it’s skilfully executed Italian dishes such as Black Ink Tagliolino Pasta with Roe Mullet, Garlic and chilli. If that’s not enough to tempt you, they have over 150 wines available by the glass, thanks to their state of the art Corvine preservation system.

The wines themselves come from small unheard of producers and vineyards worldwide. The Humble Grape’s attitude might be humble, but the choice of wines is not and their friendly approach means there’s always someone on hand to help you pick your next favourite tipple.

Champagne & Fromage, Brixton

 

Set in the heart of Brixton Village, Champagne and Fromage brings the bubbles to South London. As its name suggests, the focus here is on Champagne and cheese and they do it remarkably well. In a market that is often restricted to the big names, the Champagnes here are from small growers and of the highest quality, not to mention perfect when combined with a cheese or two.

Terroirs

 

Terroirs has long maintained its reputation for innovation and the ability to excite. They source their wines from small-scale, artisan producers that can be difficult to find elsewhere. The wine list is a testament to their focus on organic and biodynamic wines, making this the place to go and try natural wines in London.

Testament to Borough Market’s ongoing reputation as one of the gastronomic hubs of London, Bedales should be on every oenophile’s roster of go-to wine bars. Prepare to try something a little different – their menu is a well-thought-out but eclectic selection of wines from around the world from Rieslings produced in Chile’s Elqui Valley to organically produced Catarrattos from Sicily.

Sager & Wilde is a beacon for oenophiles in East London. There’s two Sager & Wilde’s – one on Hackney Road and the other not so far away on Paradise Row in Bethnal Green. Wines vary day to day, but are all reasonably priced and matched perfectly with the inventive food menu.

28°-50°

 

When you call yourself a wine workshop and kitchen that takes the traditional wine experience to a new level, you ought to take your wine seriously. It’s a good thing that 28°-50° does. There are actually three 28°-50°s but our favourite is the Fetter Lane one, just off Fleet Street. Each of their 15 red wines and 15 white wines is available for the glass, carafe or bottle, so you can mix and match to your heart’s content.
