Having worked alongside Cliff Roberson for almost 10 years, Gavin will now be seeking new challenges and adventures in the wine world that will see him leave at the end of the September.
Tasked with making wines for the city’s first urban winery (and proving that they’re no gimmick) London Cru is an award winning winery with 18 terrific wines in its range. Portfolio highlights include the 94 point 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon, our highest scoring wine and a personal favourite of co-founder Cliff Roberson, as well as the IWC Silver Medal 2016 Bacchus which was the highest-scoring 2016 vintage Bacchus at the International Wine Challenge Awards 2017.
In addition to four IWC medals, Gavin’s wines have received great critical acclaim, with Richard Hemming describing the 2015 Chardonnay as able to “challenge famous names from Burgundy”.
London Cru wines are now enjoyed in several Michelin star restaurants across London and are testament to Gavin’s prowess as a winemaker. We wish him all the best in the future.
London Cru will be closed in September for refurbishment, reopening in November, just in time for Christmas with a range of new features including a state of the art private tasting room.
We will be working with a guest winemaker to produce a limited edition 2017 vintage. Watch this space for more details.
