lady of the grapes to open

London’s wine bar scene is going through a bit of a boom at the moment and with Lady of the Grapes set to open next month, it shows no signs of slowing down. Opening in Covent Garden and run by Carole Bryon, Lady of the Grapes is focusing on female winemakers, with more than half of the organic, natural and biodynamic vinos on the 80-strong list made by women. As well as the wine (which you can buy to take away), Lady of the Grapes will also serve a food menu designed by Victor Garvey of Rambla. It’ll be seasonal and regularly changing, with a mix of sharing boards and larger plates on offer, so expect dishes like mussels and clams with bone marrow, and steak tartare with ceps and kohlrabi. If you can’t sit in, there’ll be a deli full of cheeses, charcuterie and other grocery produce so you can pick up everything you need for a wine night at home.

Opens mid-July 2018
