About Beyond The Wine Press

About Beyond The Wine Press

This Beyond the Wine Press website is the latest manifestation of a project that began in the mid 80s,with a series of “working class” wine dinners held in Kentish Town, North West London.

Founded in 2009  the Beyond The Wine Press  site is an ongoing non-commercial project dedicated to seeking out London’s exceptional, individualistic wine and food outlets and featuring the authentic regional products they serve and sell.

We also take an interest in the many beautifully preserved traditional wine making regions scattered around Europe, in an effort to discover, besides great cuisine, and winemaking, the wonderful scenic countryside and historic towns with winemaking histories, often stretching back to Roman times or even earlier. These offer in addition to wonderful food and wine  fascinating stories with wonderful characters garnished with an enticing glimpse into the development of European culture, art and architecture.
