Hi there, ladies! Katie Oxley-Cowen here. I'm thrilled to bring you a fresh perspective on one of my absolute favourite spots in London town - Gordon’s Wine Bar. If you're a wine lover like me, you're going to want to check this out. Today, I sat down with my longtime friend, Emily, who is not only a celebrated sommelier but also a devout patron of this renowned establishment. Emily is a charming, energetic, wine enthusiast who has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things vino. Let's dive right into the Q & A with her, shall we?

Q: Hi Emily, Thank you for joining us today. Now, why don't you tell our readers what you love about Gordon’s Wine Bar?

A: Hi Katie, it's great to sit down and chat about one of my favourite London haunts. Honestly, Gordon’s Wine Bar ticks all my boxes for a perfect wine bar. The atmosphere is delightfully unique - stepping inside is like stepping back in time. I mean, it’s actually the oldest wine bar in London, and it has retained much of its historic charm. It's dimly lit, cavernous, and overflowing with character.

Q: Sounds intriguing. What about the wine list, what's that like?

A: The wine list is truly impressive. They have an extensive selection of wines from all over the world. Whether you prefer your wine red, white, rosé, or sparkling, you're sure to find something you love. Plus, the staff are always ready to offer a recommendation if you're feeling overwhelmed!

Q: Do they have anything other than wine?

A: Absolutely, they cater to all tastes. While wine is their specialty, they also offer a variety of beers and spirits. Their food menu is definitely worth a mention too. The selection of cheese and charcuterie complements the wine list perfectly, and their platters are great to share if you're visiting with friends.

Q: What's the best time to visit?

A: Gordon's is always buzzing, but if you want to beat the crowd, I'd suggest heading over in the early afternoon. That way, you’ll secure a spot either inside the bar or in the impressive outdoor seating area, which is perfect during the summer months.

Q: And finally, Emily, why would you recommend Gordon’s Wine Bar to our readers?

A: Well, apart from the exceptional wine list and delicious food, I love that Gordon’s blends history and charm to create a truly unique atmosphere. Whether you're a wine enthusiast or simply looking for a memorable spot to unwind, Gordon's is definitely worth a visit.

Thank you so much for sharing with us today, Emily. Gordon’s Wine Bar sounds like a delightful blend of historic ambiance, thrilling global wines, and mouthwatering food, making it undoubtedly a must-visit location for us urban ladies. I hope you all will pay a visit next time you're in London. Until next time, cheers to finding new favourite spots!
