If Robert Louis Stevenson was right to say that "wine is bottled poetry", then a fine wine is an object of art and deserves to be enjoyed in the company of its peers. At 140 Portobello we believe that the union of fine wine and fine painting makes for a wonderful experience, and wish to share it with our guests.
Wine fosters the soul and lulls our griefs to sleep, and awakens kindly feelings as oil quickens flame
Socrates quoted in Xenophon, Symposium, 2.24
Wine is our passion and we are happy to share it with you at 140 Portobello Wine & Art. Our Mediterranean wine selection has wines from all over the Europe. Our knowledgeable staff can help you find the perfect wine to pair with our delicious food.
Our wine selection has been carefully selected. Some of it geeky, some of it classic, all of it delicious, hand picked and Old World focused. We pride ourselves on supporting only the small producers.
We must strive to be as young as a Beaujolais and to age like a Burgundy.
One should always be drunk. In order not to feel the horrible burden of time that breaks your shoulders, one should get drunk without respite. With wine, with poetry, or with virtue, as you chose. But get drunk.
We are engaged in a long-term partnership with the Eclectic Gallery, which every few months offers us the opportunity to display the work of talented artists at 140 Portobello in a series of thematic exhibitions. So far we have been privileged to display.
Great wine requires a madman to grow the vine, a wise man to watch over it, a lucid poet to make it, and a lover to drink it.
Our spacious dining room lends itself well to private parties and large events. Why not have 140 Portobello all to yourselves? Exclusive hire is available any day of the week provided we receive advance notice.
