Top 10 restaurants in London for organic wines

21st September, 2017 by Lauren Eads

While still a niche segment of the wine market, demand for organic, biodynamic and natural wines has grown significantly over the past decade.

In February the Soil Association’s 2017 Organic Report found that organic BWS was the second fastest-growing organic category in the UK, with its share of the organic market growing by 14.3% to take 2.2% of the market.

Earlier this year Aldi announced it would be rolling out a range of organic wines as it looks to tap into growing demand from consumers.

Confirming the increasing demand for organic wines, both major international trade shows for wines and spirits this year have installed dedicated sections for the category.

In March, ProWein hosted its first ever Organic World, a showcase of 30 international organic wine producers in a designated area, while Vinexpo Bordeaux also launched its inaugural WOW!, standing for World of Organic Wines, with the participation of 200 growers.

At the same time interest in biodynamic and natural wines is also growing. Earlier this year the London-based natural and artisan wine show RAW Wine announced it would be expanding to the West Coast with a new show in Los Angeles.

London, perhaps more so than other cities, has whole-heartedly embraced the organic, natural and biodynamic wine movement, with a range of restaurants placing a special emphasis on these categories in their wine lists.

With this in mind, we have sifted through our Wine List Confidential database to bring you a selection of restaurants with a stellar line-up of natural, organic and biodynamic wines.

Wine List Confidential is a wine list ratings website and mobile app designed to be a transparent, straightforward way to connect wine lovers with the best wine-focused restaurants.

Using a numeric rating system, Wine List Confidential allows wine lovers to quickly compare the wine offer in restaurants, whatever the food or format. Using a simple 100-point scale, Wine List Confidential scores restaurants on the most important aspects of their wine offering – from pricing and service, to the range, size and originality of the selection. These individual ratings are then used to create an overall Wine List Confidential Score for every restaurant reviewed.

The free-to-use resource will initially focus on London’s top restaurant and wine venues, but is set to expand to cover other major cities around the world.

Here, we present some of the restaurants featured on Wine List Confidential that shine a brighter light than most on organic, natural and biodynamic wines.
