Join me on a stroll through the West End to discover just how Britain changed the world of wine. From the Knights' Templar to the Napoleonic wars with lashings of Claret and Port along the way (so long as you pass it correctly!) This 3.5 hour tour will stop by some of London's oldest wine caverns for regular refreshment along the route. In between stories of intrigue and scandal we will stop by…
