THEATRE OF WINE – London wine merchant

London wine merchant The Theatre of Wine describes itself as a “Purveyor of fine wines, rare beers and exquisite spirits”

logoWe offer all the traditional services of a wine merchant, including glass loan and free local delivery, as well as a very popular series of tastings and a members wine club. Our wines are fresh and varied, with plenty of shelf space devoted to unusual wines from places as diverse as Morocco, Georgia and Hungary. Passionate small producers from more familiar parts of the wine world like Burgundy, Piedmont and Champagne are strongly featured, and we also stock around 20 types of sherry.

At first glance the website looks appealing – some nice design elements, and their wine list certainly looks interesting with a wide range of quality wines such as Terlano Gewurztraminer Classico 2007 from the Alto Adige in northern Italy “Quite one of the loveliest Gewurz. we have tasted in a long time. … it doesn’t have the richness of many Alsace wines, but has wonderful aromatics and purity” and some quirky choices such as a Swiss soarkling rosé Mauler Brut Rose NV.

However the site does not quite do justice to the wine selection – with no on-line ordering *just download an order form and wine list or phone) and the navigation and wine selection is a bit minimslistic.
