We are an independent local wine shop in Walthamstow, E17. Specialising in natural and organic wines, craft beers and selected spirits.

We created Forest Wines in spring 2014 as a small local business that stocks handpicked selection of great wines, beers and spirits that wasn't available anywhere in Walthamstow. Whether it's simple wines for the everyday table, great wines for those special occasions, or craft beers and selected spirits for everything in between. We pride ourselves at making it a friendly place where everyone stop and pick up a bottle on our way from work, chat to someone who knows their products, and get a sense of a local community.

Forest Wines is owned and operated by Ali and Jana: a young, passionate, husband-and-wife team.

We source our wines from the ‘Old World’ but we also like to offer our customers something out of the usual range, from less known varieties and countries. Majority of our wines are natural, either organically or biodynamically produced, fermented with indigenous yeast, and made with a minimum interventions from the picking in the vineyard all the way to the bottle. We are simply after quality, natural produce and diversity. We are here to help you navigate through the maze of ‘natural wines’, ‘terroirs’ & ‘food pairing’.
Our craft beer selection features London's top artisan breweries as well as expanding range of European craft beer and outstanding ciders. Find your favourite beers and try something new. We focus on small breweries that value quantity and firmly believe there is a beer for every occasion.

Drop in and see us on Forest Road, E17. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to call us at the shop.
