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!

Crouch End



Having grown up in Italy, Alex went to Hotel school and, after completing his diploma, decided to venture around the world from Bermuda to Australia via Miami, Asia and London discovering different cultures and cuisines and most of all listening and learning from great Sommeliers to discover their different styles and approach to customers. After 15 years, he joins Bottle Apostle to share his love of wines from all around the world. He does his best to try and drink a new wine (nearly) everyday but admits having a soft spot for the Nebbiolo grape and, in particular, Barolo - he blames his father who probably got it into his head at a young age!


Charlie began his journey in wine by cooking for his father, who insisted if he was cooking nice food he’d serve good wine to go with it. His first and most enduring love is the Southern Rhone. Before joining us at Bottle Apostle, Charlie worked for nearly 4 years at Bibendum restaurant where the 700 odd wines on the list covered most regions. In 2016 he took a break and spent 6 months exploring as many wine areas in Australia as he could.
