Rise & Vine is an independent wine shop and bar in Kensal Rise, London. We source our Wines, Beers, Spirits & Cigars from a wide variety of independent producers, small, specialist dealers and some of the UK’s best wine importers. Our close relationship and continually developing understanding of the tastes of our customers means that every single product that we stock has been tasted and selected by us as the kind of wine, beer or spirit we are sure you will enjoy.
Rise & Vine is owned by Guy Butters and Shaun Robert Smith, both are extremely experienced in the industry totalling over 40 years! They met during their time at Borough Wines & Beers, Shaun quickly rose from Store Manager to Operations Manager and Guy was the Store Manager at the Turnham Green & Kensal Rise branches. It was soon apparent that their ethos and approach to the business were similar and forged a partnership to take over the Borough Wines store in Kensal Rise – soon after, on 29th May 2019 the business changed to Rise & Vine and a new chapter began.
Since then, the shop has gone from strength to strength and has been through some significant changes, including a complete overhaul of the range, events, branding and of course a global pandemic! The store continues to thrive, and every week sees new and interesting brands and products cross the threshold.
