English Wine

You’d be forgiven for not associating wet and cold England with great wine production, but you’d also be wrong! English Wine has come on leaps and bounds in the last ten years and is now a quality niche product. English producers have really focussed on quality over quantity: the vineyards are often organic/biodynamic, and wine makers employ both cutting edge and age-old techniques. The climate is also pretty similar to the Champagne region (heard of it?!) The cool weather produces grapes with exciting flavours and defined acidity – expect crisp and fruity whites, complex dry reds, and perfectly balanced fizz.
