This weekend we’re celebrating the first anniversary of our Chiswick store, by getting a (rather large!) round in for the locals. Stop by the shop on Turnham Green Terrace after 12pm\u00a0Friday 17 August – Sunday 19 August\u00a0and enjoy a glass of ‘Chiswick Twist‘ on us. Party hat optional (but very much encouraged).

It has been twelve (and a bit) months since we opened our Battersea shop and we wanted to say a big THANK YOU to everyone for the local love we have received in that time.\u00a0So – for the next two weeks, first drinks are on us – it’s free cocktail fortnight.

\r\n

Ahead of English Wine Week 2018 (May 26 – June 3), we look at the burgeoning business of home grown bottles and get the insider view from Court Garden\u2019s Hugo Corney. English wine is not new – evidence suggests that it was the Romans who introduced vines to these shores. It is only in the […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\r\n \r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>

There’s much more to Australia’s Barossa Valley than big name wineries, hefty reds and heftier price tags. Don’t believe us? You can go Whistler. Winemaker Josh Pfeiffer is Barossa born-and-raised; he grew up surrounded by vines, as son and grandson of grape-growers for the aforementioned big-name estates. On graduating university (oenology), he honed his craft […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\r\n \r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>

Tangy, tasty and alcohol-free, kombucha has been a fixture on the US drinks scene for years, but remained relatively unknown here – the reserve of health shops and home-brewers.

With just three sleeps left until the big day, we rounded up a few Borough Wines folk to ask how they plan to spend Christmas.

\r\n

Calvados is a Christmas cracker that has fallen out of favour somewhat in recent years. A perfect present, delicious after-dinner drink and cracking cocktail addition (not to mention an all-important ingredient in Aunt Alice’s\u00a0Christmas puddings), yet often overlooked in favour of fancier French liqueurs. Enough is enough, we argue that Calvados’ time has come; read […]<\/p>\n <\/div>\r\n \r\n <\/div>\r\n<\/div>

When we heard that our former Borough Market neighbour Nancy Mahon was no longer selling her handmade\u00a0Aunt Alice’s Christmas Puddings\u00a0to the public, we worried about the future of our favourite figgy pudding and therefore – Christmas itself.
