specialist wine merchants listed & mapped! (June 2019)



Innovative independent London wine merchant Bottle Apostle offer an exciting series of wine tasting events suitable for both the novice and the connoisseur.  For example they offer “a How to Taste Wine” evening


logoWe opened the first Bottle Apostle in July 2009 with the idea that a wine shop could cater as much to the wine novice as it does to the seasoned tippler. We believe customers should be able to explore wine without feeling intimidated simply because they might not know much about it. At the same time we strive to offer much more than the often predictable off-license or supermarket selections. We aim to carry a broad range of wines at various price points and believe anyone should be able to buy a great bottle at a competitive price, without compromising on flavour or quality.

All the wines sold in our shop and online are colour-coded, food matched and concisely described. You can sample from a rotating selection in our tasting machines at both shops. If you still have trouble deciding, then our qualified winos are on hand to share their knowledge – with none of the attitude – either in person or on bottleapostle.com. With a view to rewarding customers we now have Bottle Apostle loyalty cards which offer a discount after you’ve collected 9 stamps. If we forget to mention it please ask for one at the till.

Our self-service Enomatic® machines dispense wine directly from the bottle for a small fee – the wine samples are priced according to the value of the wine and are paid for using a free Bottle Apostle smart-card (available in-store)

If you live in or near London, then the Bottle Apostle certainly looks well worth a visit.The website achieves the balance between informality and information and on-line ordering is now available.
