Berry Bros

This is one of the must visit places in London for a wine drinker.
They keep the wine in famous Georgian Vaulted wine cellars deep underneath the shop in St James and they stretch right
under the street. Very intrerested in this, I attempted to visit these cellars, but upon visiting the shop I came across
stringent rules forbidding access to the public.
It was a shame as you can imagine I had visions of me wandering the georgian cellars admiring the dusty vintages, but
instead we had to point at bottles from inside display cases in their shop.
The shop is still lovely with sloping irregular floors and a tiny gothic shop front on St James. Maybe next time I willring ahead and request a tour of the cellars with a member of staff.
