It helps that one of my closest friends lives nearby as I stop there almost every single time I’m heading her way. If you are anywhere nearby, in the Borough/London Bridge area, and want a fabulous selection of wines plus great advice, this is the place to go. They will find you an interesting wine you’ve never tried before within your budget. On top of this, they recently began having wine tastings for £5 a person. Fabulous. Do check in with them to find out the next date. Oh, and note, their name is changing to Lant Street Wines, as they have a new owner, who is just as fabulous as the last.

For any fellow Southies or just anyone who finds his/her way to the SE1, make Waterloo Wine your destination for the sweet nectar of the gods. Specialising in lesser known vinters and locales, why go to your local superstore for cheap plonk when you can visit here for outstanding, yet cheap varieites from around the globe. Don’t know your pinot noir from your pinot gris? The friendly and approachable staff is always on hand to make recommendations.
