Any modern-day Londoner is no stranger to its thriving street food scene. Meander through colourful, hipster-frequented streets and squares, soak up some culture and take your pick from a wide selection of handcrafted, artisan culinary delights. I mean, what’s not to love? And while most of central London is a street-food hotspot, the trend has spread beyond its borders as well. Good news if you’re looking for a vibe but don’t feel like getting on a city-bound train to get there. Enter Kingston-Upon-Thames.
Anyone who knows me will know my love of red wine. Why red in particular? Maybe it’s the seduction of the deep ruby colour, the decadence in every sip or, more than likely, the sum of all its parts that makes a great glass of red both alluring and incredibly satisfying. With the vast range of wine styles available, and the many producers adding their own touch to the process, there is always an exquisite new discovery to be made. One of these discoveries in my wine tasting journey is Kanonkop’s Cabernet Sauvignon 2003.
