Victoria Park Village

Bottle Apostle, Victoria Park Village

The Victoria Park Village Bottle Apostle wine shop opened in July 2009 with the vision that a london wine shop could cater as much to the wine novice as it does to the seasoned tippler. We believe customers should be able to explore wine without feeling intimidated. We strive to offer our customers much more than the predictable off-license or supermarket selections while still aiming to be within a competitive price range.

While seeking work experience, George had the opportunity to spend a week working in Tain l'Hermitage. After a few years at uni studying physics, he decided that he would much rather be spending his time with wine so after some time bartending and working in restaurants he joined Bottle Apostle. Wine favourites are northern Rhone, cool climate Pinot Noir and pretty much anything Sicilian.
