Just off the famous Fleet Street, down a maze of alleyways and in the vaults of St.Brides Church, is Humble Grape.
A popular independent winery, Humble Grape serves and sells hand-crafted wines from lesser known vineyards and is run by people who are passionate about wine (aren’t we all?!)
I was very excited to be invited ahead of the official opening, to experience the brand new Humble Grape. I’ve paid many a visit to their original bar in Battersea, so I knew it would be an evening filled with wine worth drinking.
When you walk in, you’re met by a seriously cool setting. Inside, there’s a rustic slash minimalist vibe with high ceilings, stone and plenty of exposed brick.
The cork walls are a particularly trendy touch.
We were welcomed to the party with a celebratory glass of prosecco and cracked on with ordering some food.
I mean, how can you resist these meat and cheese platters?!
After my bubbles, the first wine I chose was the Cantina Ronca Pinot Grigio to wash down my nibbles. All the wines at Humble Grape can be ordered by the glass, carafe or bottle. If you’re looking to become more of a connoisseur, they host regular wine tasting events or you can even curate your own wine tasting experience in a private dining space. If you like what you try, you can even buy a bottle (or four) on site to take home. Cool, huh?
Although I enjoyed my prosecco and Pinot, I totally fell in love with the Bartinney Sauvignon Blanc. I ended up buying a bottle which is currently chilling in the fridge waiting to be opened. I know I won’t be able to resist it for long, but I guess that just means I’ll have to pay Humble Grape another visit soon!
