Spring tasting 2018 - save the date

Join us on Sunday 29th April for our Spring Tasting.

As usual we will fill The Round Chapel on Lower Clapton Road with some stellar winemakers from both us and our friends Tutto Wines.

Festive plans are well underway here - the warehouse has been filled to the rafters with wine; the Christmas beef is hanging; and the mince pies are being filled. Across on the continent the vines are entering their rest period and the juice from autumn is well on its way to becoming wine.


October 2017 newsletter & a visit to CostadilÀ

Autumn has fully descended on us, with the streets full of plane leaves, darker nights and sluggish mornings. Now that the weather is cooler we have begun shipping wine again, and so are looking forward to several new arrivals over the coming months. 


september 2017 newsletter

As London has begun to feel autumnal we thought it would be a good time for a newsletter. We have all returned from our summer holidays, having spent some of it together in Tuscany hosting our annual Fête du Vin (or more aptly Festa del Vino this year) with our friends from Pacina. 



Corbières is one of the most dramatic and beautiful areas in the Languedoc. Climbing up from the populated coast and the plains around Perpignan it is a shock to come across this craggy, undulating, precipitous, wind battered landscape. It is no surprise that the Cathars chose this area to build two of their most mind-bogglingly remote fortresses - Quéribus and Peyrepertuse. 


Spring tasting 2017

On Sunday 30th April we will be returning to the Round Chapel in Hackney with Tutto Wines to host our annual Spring Tasting. 

The tasting will run from 11am-5pm and entry will be £15. There will be lunch cooked by our team from 40 Maltby Street, as well as glasses of beer and wine for the fatigued.


A visit to Pacina

The hamlet of Pacina, just south of Siena, originated around 900AD as a monastery. The cellar and foundations from this time remain cold and dark beneath the main house.


February 2017 Newsletter

A very belated Happy New Year from all of us at Gergovie Wines and 40 Maltby Street. The beginning of the year saw all of us scattered across the globe (Australia, Venezuela, Japan, France, Sweden, and Cornwall), which meant we were able to have one of our chefs Will Gleave take the reigns for our first day back in January.


december 2016 newsletter

The last few months have proven to be rather busy for us; with visits to producers, new wine arrivals, and the inevitable Christmas preparations. So, it seemed like a perfect time to reinstate our long neglected newsletter.


spring tasting 2016

On Sunday 1st May 2016 we will be joined by our friends at Tutto Wines once more for our Spring Tasting. This year we are particularly excited as the tasting will be held in the beautiful Round Chapel on Lower Clapton Road, Hackney.

The tasting runs from 11am to 5pm. Entry is £12 on the door, which entitles you to a tasting glass and free rein to taste with over thirty of Europe’s most exciting growers.
