“Sure, no problem,” your groom and father-of-the-bride say in cheerful unison, as you let slip that their sole task for the day is to sort the wine list for your wedding at new-concept wine shop Vagabond Wines, Fulham, London.
The minimal, industrial space houses around 100 expertly selected bottles – from special-occasion vintages of Puligny Montrachet (from £41.60 a bottle) to quaffable Spanish Tempranillo (from £5.75 a bottle) – which can be supped and sampled via the specially built machines that line the walls of this modern Bacchanalian-deli for lovers of the vine.
If you’re keen to join in, why not take your caterer along or incorporate a visit into your hen night plans? Owner Stephen Finch is all about putting the fun back into the daunting task of finding the perfect bottle. And if the men in your life return tipsy yet with bottles in hand, never fear: Vagabond provides take-away information cards with food-match ideas and info about the bottles they’ve chosen.
