English wine is becoming a real hot topic, and on this experience you'll meet the crazy folk making vino right here in the heart of London! Urban wineries are truly unique - wine getting made right in the centre of one of the world's busiest cities - and on this experience we'll visit two of London's top spots. At the first - hidden under railway arches - you'll have the chance to meet the winemaker and ask as many questions as you like as the trains rumble overhead. Most importantly, there's the chance to try the full range of wines produced, all made using English grapes. It's then a short 15 minute walk to our second urban winery, set at the back of a bustling wine bar in London's revamped Battersea Power Station quarter. You'll sample more wines in amongst the tanks, barrels and presses. Come along on the UK's first urban wine experience and find out what all the fuss is about!
I'm the founder of English Wine Adventures, the UK's first curator of wine experiences, and a lover of all things wine! I first fell in love with wine 10 years ago while working on a winery in Rioja, Spain. I've led wine tours in Spain, Italy and France and am now incredibly proud to be able to do the same in my home country - England! I also speak fluent Spanish, French and Italian
We'll have a tour and tasting at both wineries
We'll be diving into the thriving neighbourhood of Battersea, where both of the urban wineries are located. Our first stop is a hidden gem - even the locals don't know about it - while winery no2 is a vision of the future. Part funky wine bar, part award-winning boutique winery. Our amble between the two will take us through Battersea Park, a listed space of historic importance and popular former duelling spot. En garde!
A rain jacket / umbrella. This is England after all!
