Just found this place, based in Germany so delivery is 19 Euro's but good lord, the selection is mental.

They don’t pick the wines they take basically everything from a bunch of different importers in Berlin. Still, probably unmatched in terms of selection from one place.

Off the sauce for lockdown (lost 6 pounds) so picked up a case of these as they have been spamming me on social media.

Definitely the nicest low abv I've tried. Recommended but expensive.

I don´t think anywhere is open for you to have a browse now, on a normal non-pandemic day I´d say P Franco or Noble Fine Liquor - but they do both have their full cellars on the Noble site now and as well as delivery I think they will do pickup at one of their restaurants if you want to get it yourself. Otherwise I posted a selection of good online retailers a page or two back - but I´ve had a scan of the usual suspects and they are selling out of stock fast!

Actually you could try the Little Wine Shop in Stokey, I´ve never been there, don´t know them but they may still be open..

I'm very skeptical about alcohol-free beers but two people recommending one is more than enough to give it a go!

Sister beers are just wrong. Why not just drink juice.

No-one can accuse you of not throwing yourself into your work, Pentonville.
