Wine has been the biggest topic of my day! Italian food for lunch, at this beautiful restaurant where there was this beautiful staircase with a wine case incorporated along the side going down. I mean this Italian restaurant is such an elegant place to go for a cosy atmosphere and delicious food. It’s tucked away in the streets of Shoreditch and if any of you have been to Shoreditch before, its such a boutique place – full of unique shops, restaurants and bars. Check out this wonderful stair case of wine, personally I don’t feel the photo does it justice but nevertheless still cool.
I also went to a wine shop today called bottle apostle! Literally this place is for all wine lovers; it’s literally wine heaven. Such a cool place, seriously look!
This photo only shows just one side to the shop, the whole shop is like this; ceiling to floor in all different wines from all around the world. One could think I am a lover for wine from this post and the day I have had involving wine, well I am not; I have no idea about wine really! But I do love drinking wine and I am starting to form more of a love for it and maybe could possibly lead to a passion to understanding it much more. I just adore the sheer elegance that people take into creating beautiful wines. From the actual bottle shape, to labels and the wine itself – altogether it creates a lovely combination to the feel of having and drinking mouthwatering wine. Plus I am on a new mission to find new interesting things I can get into and try, and I feel exploring this month with the challenge of taking a photo and writing a paragraph of the the weird and wonderful things I find or do within my day, is helping me achieve this.
Oh this wine shop had such a cool idea of trying new wines without having to buy a actual whole bottle. Look at this picture. You can see a selection of wines in a fridge, with a nozzle attached so the wine can be ejected when you press a button. You literally pay like a pound and you get 50ml of wine to try and see what you think of it. There is about 30-40 different wines you can try or so, which is a pretty impressive selection. But personally I wouldn’t advise trying them all; be a bit drunk from it but still really awesome idea.
Actually from it, its made me really want to join a wine tasting class so I can understand wines much more and have a good time meeting fellow wine lovers. So does anyone know of any in and around London?
