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.

Being raised by a Venetian family meant that a bottle of wine (or more) were pretty much ever present on the table and with the closest winery less than 2 miles away, the path into a profession involving wine was scripted. After his studies Michael left Italy and worked in hospitality in the UK and other countries, before shifting his career from restaurants to the wine shops. He loves red wines from Tuscany and Priorat, whites from Germany and Alsace and also has a soft spot for whisky.
