Raise a glass to VSL's favourite summer wines and outdoor venues

Thursday 9 July 2020

 summer wine

Whether you are enjoying a staycation this summer or taking a much-needed trip away, VSL are excited to bring a touch of European flair from some of our much-loved venues.

From London's leading wine bars to terraces and restaurants, we list our top five favourites... 

Bluebird Chelsea

Located on the desirable Kings Road the Bluebird Chelsea is one of our favourite west London venues. The venue compromises of a stylish first floor restaurant, bar & lounge and a spacious outdoor terrace. This summer we will be ordering their Minuty Rosé by Ruby Taylor from Côte de Provence. Fragrant, strawberry-scented, dry and crisp, this is the perfect spring and summer drink.

Gordon's Wine Bar

Gordon's is one of London's oldest and most famous wine bars.  Close to Covent Garden and London’s Theatre land, it is a hidden gem, just minutes away from Trafalgar Square between Charing Cross and Embankment stations.  The venue includes a generous terrace with lots of outdoor seating under heated awnings which provide an all year-round alfresco experience. We recommend a bottle of Gavi Ca'Bianca from Italy.  A bright clean & crisp wine with apple & mineral notes, refreshing & perfect as an aperitif.

Fortnum & Mason Wine Bar

The Wine bar at Fortnum & Mason is a hidden gem, located on the lower ground floor of the iconic department store.  Offering an extensive wine list and complementary food menu. Guests can enjoy wines by the bottle, glass of 3-wine flight in the elegant setting. Each month the venue highlights a different wine/ champagne, our favourite from the month of July is Veuve Clicquot champagne. 


Aviary is an iconic rooftop bar and restaurant located in Finsbury Square.  Be the envy of your instagram followers by posting some of the city's most spectacular views. The venue delivers not only unforgettable experiences but delivers quality service and cuisine with a touch of class. Our go to rosé has to be the deliciously light Whispering Angel from Côtes de Provence.

The Marylebone Hotel

Set in the heart of Marylebone this five star boutique hotel is the perfect option for fine dining and fantastic service. We love the hotel's in house restaurant 108 Brasserie where guests can enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace. Their new menu takes inspiration from culinary delights from across the globe this summer. The menu focuses on light, fresh and healthy dishes; where seasonal produce take centre stage. Why not treat yourself to one of their delicious wines, we recommend the Riesling Kabinett, Selbach-Oster from Germany.
