Looking for a wine with a bit of horsepower? You may want to start at London’s newest indie wine boutique, Bottles N Jars, which has opened up in a basic automobile showroom in East Finchley, of all places. Hexagon Classics – along the Excellent North Street and just up from Highgate – has offered up some of its glitzy showroom space to the new deli and wonderful wine idea, which is hoping to gasoline north London locals. 

And we reckon it’ll do a damn great work of it far too, due to the fact Bottles N Jars is the brainchild of wine specialist Bert Blaize, sommelier and co-author of ‘Which Wine When’. He’ll be picking terrific drops from established vineyards as effectively as rising winemakers, with wines coming from all about the globe but with a target on European producers. And Blaize will hopefully be on standby to advise what wine to obtain for your evening food – the desire! (We questioned him to support with that for the duration of lockdown and the results were unbelievable.) 

Bottles N Jars will also be stocking posh cupboard items and day-to-day deli staples – plus new bread delivered day-to-day by a area bakery and coffees to takeaway from roasters Notes. And then there is the cheese: excitingly that is getting supplied by Holly Chaves of Wine & Rind fame. 

It is by now open daily, so drop by and display your aid to an fascinating new nearby that is aware much more than a little bit about very good classic. 

Bottles N Jars is at 82-92 Terrific North Street, N2 0NL. Locate out extra here.
