London Cru is central London’s first winery. They source grapes from all over Europe and, using state-of-the-art equipment, they handcraft wonderful and award-winning wine in a converted gin distillery near Earl’s Court.
Each bottling is named after a London street whose first few letters match those of the grape variety used, for example Albemarle Street Albariño and Charlotte Street Chardonnay. Hence Grenache for Gresham Street.Named after London’s Gresham Street, running parallel to Cheapside through the heart of The City. Home to banks, insurers and financial services, maybe it’s a nod to the fact that this is a wine worth investing in. Also part of London Marathon route, Gresham Street is one to chase down.
Made in London using Grenache grapes harvested from 90-year-old vines in northeast Spain, grown at 1km above sea level. Bright, animated and packed with violet, red cherry, blackberry, herbs and spices; it’s excellent with curries, barbecues, pie and mash or an evening with a boxset
