This week, in case any of you have missed it, is English Wine Week. So now’s the time for you to pop down to your local wine shop and pick up a bottle from Cornwall, Sussex, Kent, heck even Yorkshire’s doing some great stuff these days.
More specifically though, we’re going to be looking at the area that English wine is genuinely making great headway, and that’s with their sparkling wines.
We’ll talk about the where, and the how, and the why during the next few days, but for now, just sit back, have a flick through the wine shops, and pick yourself up a nice bit of fizz for the weekend!
Here are my picks…
Nyetimber Classic Cuvée, 2009
(Fantastic offer, 33% off)
Chapel Down Vintage Reserve Brut
(Buy any 6 bottles of any Sainsbury’s wine and get 25% off)
Couldn’t find one
Knightor Sparkling Brut N/V
Ridgeview Bloomsbury Brut, 2011
Yeah I know they’re a tad over the usual £10 limit we try to set, but sod it, everyone deserves a treat now and again!
