Trivet Wine List

About Trivet

Trivet is in a beautiful, calm and minimalist space in Bermondsey, just over the river from the City of London. A joint venture between Isa Bal MS and chef Jonny Lake who met working at the Fat Duck, it’s creative and diverse fine dining with influences from all over.

There is a bar space for drinking and snacking and a light-drenched, welcoming dining room. It’s a haven of cool, calm and quality in one of the capital’s most historic and urban neighbourhoods.

About the Trivet Wine List

The Trivet wine list has an original, playful and gently educational approach, with wines organised by country in the chronological order in which they began to make wine. Sensitively put together by Isa Bal, he speaks of being inspired by the history, culture and heritage of winemaking around the world. With over 350 bins, the wine list is extensive and thorough featuring both naturally and conventionally make wines.

You will find classics from France, Italy and Spain, plus an unusually expansive selection from the roots of viti- and viniculture, Central Europe including Georgia, Armenia and Turkey. The by-the-glass offer also reflects the balance of the main list. The list itself is a stunner – easy and engaging to read with illustrations and annotations as useful as they are artistic.
