Sights from London, November 2011


While visiting friends and old stomping grounds were our highlights in London, we found something new: The wine card at The Sampler. We have bought wine and champagne from them before at their Islington store, but with a new store and sitting area in South Kensington, we tried out the card. It’s brilliant! Here’s how it works:

1. You put money on the card, just like a pre-paid credit card

2. Insert the card into a machine that has 8 different wines

3. Put your glass under the wine you want to try

4. Press a button to select your wine sample and size (from small to about a half-glass of wine)

5. Let the wine come out, which deducts the appropriate amount from your card

6. Taste, enjoy, repeat

We probably would have tired more wines, but Lorie tries to avoid wine due to migraines and I ended up working in the London office for 5 days while here. More to try next time I guess!
