Places to drink good wines in London

 TAGS:undefined

London is one of the most multicultural cities in the world, and it offers bars and restaurants of many kinds. In addition to beer, you should know that in London you can also drink good wine, and this is thanks to producers of several countries that enable their wines to be in the leisure industry. So if you’re travelling to London or live there, you can go to these bars that we recommend:

Vinoteca. Strongly popular, we can find wines from French, Italian and Spanish appellations. In addition, there are held tastings and other events.

Cork & Bottle. It is located in an entertainment and theatres area in London, which is usually filled with tourists tasting wines before or after the plays. Good selection of wines and food.

Fortnums 1707. In the very same Piccadilly, they have an excellent wine selection at good prices and have a store to buy them. They close fairly late, to drink wine when you feel like it.

Troubadour Wines. It brings together a wine shop and bar with restaurant included. As for the wines, there are from several countries, such as Argentina, Italy and France.

Willy’s Wine Bar. If you want fine “fish and chips”, this is the place you should go. And it is watered with wines from its list, both white and red. Something that British customers like a lot lately.

Bar Pepito. It is one of the most renowned Spanish bars in London. It is Andalusian theme, so you can deduce that “tapas” are his forte. To drink, of course, sherry wines and from other Spanish regions.

Sager + Wilde. It is the place for a good snack accompanied by fine wines. Sausages and meats, cheeses, bread and diversity of wines from several countries.
