This London Bar Is Giving Away Free Wine In Exchange For Tinned Food

This London Bar Is Giving Away Free Wine In Exchange For Tinned Food

Who remembers when you used to fill a shoebox full of tinned goods for harvest festival at school?

Well, now we've got an adult alternative, and it involves free wine.

Yep, that's right. Throughout the entirety of October, anybody who visits the urban winery Vagabond in Battersea, London, with a tin or dried food will be rewarded with a glass of vino.

The wine bar looks super trendy - you can choose your locally sourced wine with the press of a button.

And considering you can get tinned food for literally 30p in your local supermarket, this is a pretty good trade.

You can use tins from your supermarket's basics range, a long forgotten tin of Heinz beans from the back of your cupboard or even treat them to something fancy - it's completely up to you.

What's even sweeter is that the trade is for a good cause, with all food gathered in #TheWineSwapShop being sent to local food banks.

Free wine and that warm feeling you've done something charitable...what's not to like?

The deal coincides with harvest season, which runs from 21st September to mid-October.

But we should point out, this won't keep your glass full all night.

Obviously, if you've got a lot of tins to spare then bring them along, but it's only one glass of wine per customer, so don't try your luck.

We're sure the food banks will appreciate it anyway - as will you when your head is a little less sore the next day.

The deal comes at just the right time, as a new study has found that drinking red wine is actually *good for you*...

Hear us out.

A study from King's College London found that people who drank red wine had increased gut microbiota diversity compared to people who didn't drink the red grape. It also found an association with lower levels of obesity and bad cholesterol for those you sipped the red stuff.

And on that note, who fancies a trip to Battersea for a bev? We'll bring the beans...
