We did it
On 27th October 2020 we successfully raised £30,751 with 188 supporters in 163 days

Buy a voucher to help us secure a £5000 government grant! If we reach our target of £25000, the Mayor's Office will assist us with a grant.

New stretch target

It will allow us to top up the furlough payments once these are reduced or stopped by the Government. 

The funds will be used in training and upskilling the teams. It will also allow for attracting and retaining talent as the business re-gains strength, momentum and then post Covid-19 growth. Allowing us to continue to deliver exceptional service, wine & food as the business moves into the future. 


It is simple: You select your amount, and we give you a voucher which can be used at any Humble Grape or online (we ship next business day to Mainland UK!)

If we raise £25000, the Mayor's Office will give us £5000 to help us survive the new curfew, limited capacity & hospitality restrictions. 

This is not just a donation, it is yours for you to spend on food, wine, towards an event or buying wine online! 

Please note: Vouchers will be sent out after the fundraising period comes to a close

The Humble story

Humble Grape was founded in 2009 by James Dawson. 

Originally a wine tasting events, importer & off-trade supplier to restaurants, business. In 2015 Dawson grew the concept to include a wine bar & shop with the opening of the first Humble Grape in Battersea. Each following year has seen the respective openings of Humble Grape in Fleet Street, Islington, Liverpool Street & Canary Wharf.

Our Humble Hero producers

Humble Grape import all wines directly, with no middle man, bringing Londoners (& all of Mainland UK thanks to the power of the internet)  the stories of smaller producers of handcrafted, biodynamic, organic or sustainably produced wines.

The team believes in assisting guests to build their own world of wine, through tastings & stories and are trained by each of our winemakers personally, making them true ambassadors of their ethos.

We import over 400 artisan wines from the vineyards of 12 countries

Our focus is on customer experience and outstanding service. 

We know each of our winemakers personally and share the stories behind the wines.

Our Humble people

People are our business and without our teams; who are the heart and soul of Humble Grape, we would not be able to bring the wonderful and often anecdotal stories of our producers to life. We aim to deliver a unique customer experience, complete with stories direct from the vineyard. Our staff are all passionate about wine, trained daily on our products and love their job.

We aim to keep welcoming you to our events, tastings, winemaker dinners and everything else that you have grown to love at Humble Grape over the years. Without our team, none of this will be possible. 

If you are looking forward to seeing the people at your favourite Humble Grape in the future, please make a purchase now.
