Subject: Wine purchases in London and Ireland
Ziners, We will be in London for three nights next month and need advice on wine bars to visit, or at least restaurants with good wine lists. We're staying in the Bloomsbury area and Charlotte Street has a good selection of restaurants so we may just go with them. Suggestions would be appreciated.

Can anyone advise about a good London wine seller so we can pick up a few bottles to take with us to Ireland? On our last trip to Eire in 1993, we weren't able to find decent wine so we stuck with Guinness and Harp throughout our trip. This time around, we'd like to quaff decent reds so either we buy them in London or buy them along the way in Ireland. Advice on winesellers in Ireland would be very helpful to us. Lucy, Toronto
