Hello and thanks for stopping by!
I am a twenty-something, living in one of the busiest cities in the world, London. I started this blog because between 2007-2011, a good bottle of wine for a politics student living in the South East of England, never tipped above the £6 mark. The only wine merchants I knew of were, Sainsburys and Tesco, and in my opinion, the likes of the Kumala brand were all that existed, and were pretty damn good.
Little did I know.
I remember having to fund my university extra curricular activities (eating out, drinking well/ lots), with a part job, waitressing in a shabby-chic Moroccan restaurant. I remember the first time I decanted the Chateau Musar from Lebanon and smelling it’s delightful aromas, I was keen to know more. Years past, and drinking habits changed when I moved back to London. The food and drink scene was fast, and if you didn’t keep up you were left behind. I remember the first time I saw a sampler machine back in 2011, I was so happy! What an amazing invention!
Anyway, pressed for wine is a London wine blog which started as a result of wanting to document all things grape; food and anything in-between.
My blog will mainly be about food and wine, but kick me back into place if I go off tangent.
