Top wines in London restaurants by region

Using data compiled by Wine Picker, the drinks business presents the top 15 wine regions represented on London’s wine lists, with the Old World still exerting significant influence.

Wine Picker, founded by Josselin Guibert and Julien Sahut, compiles its data by uploading all of the wines from 560 of London’s major restaurants.

More than 41,000 different labels are then recorded, categorised and capable of being analysed by wine region or wine style, for example.

The Wine Picker app allows users to search through this data, as well as find restaurants nearby, get wine pairing options within their budget and record their tasting notes.

The app is available to be downloaded via the App Store or Google Play.

Commenting on the results of his findings, Guibert said that the results are skewed by large wine lists stocking a “huge amount of premium Burgundy wines that do not move very often”.

However he notes that this remains interesting, owing to that fact that despite restaurant closures and rising wine prices, restaurants are stocking more premium wines (priced over £150).
