Adding the geography to this postcode map really adds value. Here’s my original post on the subject <link>

The combination of the Time Out Wine Special <link> and this post on how to create Google Maps <link> led me to create this map of “The London WIne 50”. Time Out’s essential guide to the capital’s best restaurants and bars with outstanding wine lists.
