Last week, after attending an organ recital at Temple Church, we were wondering where to go for dinner when we stumbled upon El Vino, a wine bar on Fleet Street.
It looked inviting, so we went in - and what an enjoyable evening we had!
Started with a shared bottle of Gouguenheim Sparkling Malbec Rosé from Tupungato, Argentina. It was utterly delicious - we didn't even know that one of our favourite wines comes in a sparkling variant! The sommelier said it was very rare. Drank it while nibbling on a bowl of olives.
Next up, I saw the magic words, 'Old Vines' on the menu and went for the Vina Temprana Old Vines Garnacha 2016 from Spain. An inspired choice if I do say so myself. We enjoyed it very much with the Cheese & Charcuterie Board with Serrano Ham, Mortadella, Manchego, La Peral (our first taste of Spanish blue), with bread and pickles.
An excellent evening. £84.09 for everything including 12.5% service.
We enjoyed it so much that we went again last night and ordered the same wines, and for dinner shared a large platter of slow cooked pork in almond sauce. Plus a side of green leaf salad. An excellent dinner and a most enjoyable evening again with very friendly and attentive service.
Cheers to Rumpole of the Old Bailey whose favourite watering hole this was!
