Always a delight to see our clients getting their success recognised;Well done to the Porte Noire team.

We are delighted for Idris Elba and David Farber that their stunning wine bar and shop is getting all the attention deserved!


“Idris Elba’s wine bar and shop Porte Noire, with founder of Connaught Wine Cellars, David Farber, is exactly the kind of stylish affair you’d expect from the popular actor, producer and DJ. The bar sells their own label wines produced by Château Sainte Marguerite including Château Sainte Marguerite Porte Noire, a crisp, refreshing, certified organic rosé and Petite Porte champagne. The food menu offers tasty sharing dishes like mushroom arancini, beef cheeks and mussels marinère. And new this spring is a moreish weekend brunch menu featuring eggs royale, truffle fries with pecorino, croque madame and burnt match cheesecake.”
