With the help of our friend and wine supplier, David Harvey - who began his career in the '90s as a sommelier in Bristol's prestigious Harvey's wine cellars - we have carefully selected a seasonal wine list full of great bottles that we would enjoy drinking.
Spring's list includes Orto - an apricot-y white produced from grapes grown on ungrafted vines on the kitchen garden island of Venice; a fantastic tomato leaf-fresh Chinon pink from the Loire; as well as a bold, just-ripe, Mount Etna-grown wine from renowned natural wine-maker Frank Cornelissen with whom Elliott collaborated with on wine dinners during his time at L'ortolan.
We have around 25 to 30 bins on at any one time, and offer wines by the glass on rotation.
