UPDATE: This venue has closed. At 259 Hackney Road, the eponymous wine shop sells traditionally and naturally made French wines from small producers. The limited yet well-chosen assortment of bottles has been selected by owners Florian Tonello and Milena Bucholz, who opened the shop in February. During retail hours, visitors can pop in to purchase bottles or to have a bit of wine and cheese.
Look for the likes of Olivier Lemasson, Dominique Belluard, and Jacques Puffeney, as well as a handful of Michel Couvreur’s Scotch whiskeys, which he ages in his cellars in Burgundy.
259 Hackney is open Tuesday-Saturday 11am-9pm and Sunday 11am-6pm. This venue has closed.
