New wine bar and shop ‘Victualler’ – opens 20th August 2012

New wine bar and shop ‘Victualler’ – opens 20th August 2012

A new wine bar and shop called ‘Victualler’ opens at 69 Garnet Street in Wapping from Monday 20th August.

Both the bar and shop will offer the same wide range of classic and lesser known wines – all personally tasted and chosen by the expert team.

A selection of fine food to compliment the wine, all sourced as locally as possible will be available to order from the wine bar.

The unit has been entirely refitted in keeping with the historic building and the finishing touches are being made this week, ahead of the official opening on Monday.

Why the name ‘Victualler’?

New owner and the manager of 69 Garnet Street, Daniil describes Wapping as a “hidden gem” and explains how he chose the name for his new wine bar here:

“When I began doing my research I quickly learned that The Wapping Wall area was originally known as a place for victuallers who supplied weary sailors with food and wine and also board and accommodation after their long journeys.”

“The name Victualler was obvious to me as it reflected everything we wanted to create, a cosy, homely hostelry with local produce as well as oysters, artisan cheeses and meat dishes like beef jerky and biltong, which all might well have been served hundreds of years ago.”

“In the wine shop we have tried to represent the most interesting up and coming and newly emerging regions and of course the well-known classics, chosen and tasted by our three members of staff who are all certified by The Wines and Spirits Educational Trust”.
