The Urban Winery
Blend your own wine with a local expert at London’s first urban winery
Hi, I’m Gilbert - a fully qualified wine educator. I write and contribute about wine to the likes of Sky News and have worked in France and Italy. I’ll bring my own brand of eccentricity to this experience and make you feel like you’ve gone to a European wine producer, but without the plane ride.
Our experience will happen at London Cru, UK’s first urban winery. Tucked away down a little alleyway in Fulham, they bring fine wine tradition, innovation, and English eccentricity to the heart of the capital.
We’ll start with a visit around the winery, where you’ll learn the function of each piece of equipment and what it takes to turn simple red and white grapes into a magical and complex drink. We’ll then learn everything about tasting and how different flavours and profiles come about. We’ll discuss blending, its importance, and positive contribution to the eventual outcome.
Finally, you’ll make your own blend to your personal preference and take a bottle of the resulting nectar home.
A very good afternoon and very informative. The accompanying food was very tasty.
A very interesting & informative day. Very good host & location excellent. A fantastic day & highly recommend the experience.
I bought this as a birthday gift for my partner and we both thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Gilbert was so knowledgable and engaging, the day flew by. All in all if you enjoy wine you will certainly enjoy this day and it was extremely good value.
Me and my husband very much enjoyed this experience. It was well organised, and the wine we tasted and blended was brilliant. We have learned a lot about wine. Thank you, Gilbert!
Just wanted to say thank you for a fantastic day yesterday; we really enjoyed it and it opened our eyes to other wines to try and enjoy. Thanks again.
I wanted to thank you very much for making our stay in London that much special - we had such a wonderful day. Thank you for sharing your vast knowledge of wine in an informative and funny way, without it being stuffy. I cannot recommend this wine experience enough. Worth every penny and more. Thank you.
