Bottle Apostle, Crouch End

We opened the Crouch End Bottle Apostle wine shop in early 2012. With few areas in London offering a village feeling, we were drawn to Crouch End, which has that unique impression of a small village yet it’s only in North London’s N8. Like our East London branch, it is surrounded by many other independent businesses, and similarly we aim to offer the same friendly, approachable and informative service in both shops. If we have a bad day and slip-up on offering you this, do let us know!

With the nearest vineyard being well over 1000 miles away, growing up in an industrial city in the Urals involved very little wine culture if any at all. It took many years working in various hospitality sectors in London to go down the WSET route, meeting some amazing people along the way. Most recently, working at Borough market definitely gave her an outlet for her foodie interests, even attempting to make her own cheese and wine before deciding that those jobs are better left to the professionals. Particularly unbiased with her wine choices, she prefers anything that is well made and fits in the moment: Godello on a sunny day or Cahors with a rump steak.


Amedeo was born among the vineyards of Valpolicella, the land of Amarone, and one of Italy’s best wine regions. He became a wine lover because of his mother, who used to tell him to avoid drinking cola during the meals and start sipping wine instead. After university, Amedeo began to work in the wine industry and went to London to broaden his horizons. As well as Amarone, he also loves Madeira, Etna wines and cool climate Syrah.
