Clapham Abbeville Village

Bottle Apostle Clapham Abbeville Village

Our first jump south of the river, and we couldn't be happier to call Abbeville Village home to our third shop. Opening March 2014, this bustling strip of independent businesses has been our home over almost 10 years and easily one of the best hidden gems of Clapham.

Ros started working with wine because she wanted to be around cheerful people and decided that most people are in a pretty good mood when they are buying wine. She started off at Majestic for 6 years where she did her WSET Advanced and developed her passion for wine. Since joining Bottle Apostle her interest in Portuguese wines has grown and grown alongside her fondness of craft beer.  


Marion’s interest in wine comes from a long time ago when she wondered ‘how can we obtain this from a fruit?’. Curiosity was also enhanced by her parents; when you are French, you tend to try wine when you are young, just by ‘dipping your little finger in it’. She studied wine in France and has recently passed her WSET level 3. Marion’s favourite wines are from Burgundy, Provence (where she is from) and South Africa. When not selling wine, you will find her mostly near a sewing machine, where she loves to create historical clothes or costumes from movies.



Matthew has had a career in wine retail and wine investment which included writing articles on the subject while living in Australia. Some of his favourite wine regions include Piedmont (particularly Barbaresco) and the Barossa Valley/McLaren Vale for Shiraz and Cabernet. His seminal wine was a Gigondas - Domaine Raspail-Ay, which he tasted at university, and obviously stocked in our shops.



Kieron always loved wine but came late to learning and selling it after a career in advertising while drinking it. About 8 years ago he made amends by working through WSET courses progressing to level 3 and then joined Bottle Apostle. He relishes the challenge of helping customers find just the right bottle - whether it be a food pairing, special occasion, a present, or just an end of the week wind down. His personal favourites tend to come from California and Italy, but he's always on the hunt for great finds wherever they are.
