Camber Wines, Old Portsmouth

Come upstairs to taste and discover at this friendly, family-run wine shop above Abarbistro in Old Portsmouth

New World, Old World or, err, whatever’s open… whether it’s a decent drop for dinner or a gift for a connoisseur friend, you’ll find it at Camber Wines, a brilliant little wine shop, tucked away above Abarbistro in Old Portsmouth.

With an Aladdin’s cave of wine upstairs, it’s perhaps no big shocker that the wine list downstairs in the restaurant is pretty substantial – and you can expect the house red or white ‘of the moment’ here to be reliably good!

A family run business – founded by foodies Dave and Karen Moore – Camber Wines personally source and choose all the wines here, from classic styles to interesting blends and New World discoveries.

Located opposite Viviers Fish Market, the duo converted what was once a pub into a popular bistro and wine hub. And they recruited Christina (aka ‘Crin’), who’s enjoyed a drop or two at the cellar doors in the Rhone Valley and Tuscany, and Steve, a big Californian wine fan, to the always friendly Camber Wines team.

Sniff out a good drop at the tasting table or, better still, book a slot and come along on the last ‘Sipping’ Saturday of the month for a free try-before-you-buy tasting of Camber Wines’ wines of the month picks.

Camber Wines also offer personal group tastings in the tasting room, followed by a table downstairs in Abarbistro to continue the sociable session with more wine and delicious food.

Buy online or in the shop and get free delivery to PO1 – PO6 postcodes and on orders over £150. Or it’s just a tenner further afield.

You can also take out a great-value Wine Club subscription and get 3+ bottles to try (with tasting notes) sent directly to your home. We’ll drink to that!
