Meet the Winemakers
Producer: BlackBook Urban Winery, London Winemaker: Sergio Verrillo Region: Grapes Regional England Country: England
Blackbook is the first solo project from winemaker, Sergio Verrillo, and his wife Lynsey. They are both passionate Londoners and passionate oenophiles who have long held the dream of starting an urban winery in London which can stand alongside many of the great wineries around the globe.
Blackbook was born of a love of three things: cool climate pinot noir and chardonnay; the English wine industry; and this fair city, London. They are an urban winery located in a railway arch in Battersea, a stone's throw from Battersea Park in south London our Northcote Road store. The grapes are sourced from growers within hours of the city, carefully selected for their well-located vineyards and high-quality grapes. Lynsey's and Sergio's ethos embraces a single fundamental goal: to make bloody good wine. They have two focal varieties, chardonnay and pinot noir. Additional grapes are sourced annually to produce experimental releases that keep them on our toes!
