London, United Kingdom | Best Wine Travel Destinations 2017
It’s not in wine country, but you can find wine from every country.

A vibrant center for art, finance, politics, culture, learning and fashion, London has long been considered Europe’s most happening metropolis. It’s also an international wine capital, where you can sniff out treasured bottles in historic shops, posh bars or classy eateries. You can enjoy a breakfast martini, prop up a Victorian pub counter with a pint of bitter or treat yourself to afternoon tea. Most of all, don’t miss out on England’s delicious sparkling wines, and hit some of the new tasting rooms just an hour outside London.
German-born but London-based, Anne Krebiehl MW is a freelance wine writer contributing to international wine publications. She also lectures, consults and translates and has helped to make wine in New Zealand, Germany and Italy. She adores acidity in wine and is thus perfectly suited to her Austria/Alsace/England beat. Her particular weaknesses are Pinot Noir, Riesling and traditional-method sparkling wines.
