England, Sparkling, UK, Uncategorized, Wales


This years Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championship has recently announced its medal winners for 2017 and it was wonderful to see so many English and Welsh Wine Makers scooping gold medals. It’s just further proof that wine making in England and Wales is on the up and here to stay!

English Wine vs. British Wine, How Is It Still Allowed?

There are some things that just don’t make sense to me. Parents letting their kids terrorise the general public on those scooter things for one. People who beep their horn for no reason at traffic lights. I’d add Brexiters to the list if I didn’t think it’d spark some weird debate in the comments section, so I won’t. But the whole “British Wine” confusion is right up there as complete nonsense as far as I’m concerned.

There’ll be another post along later this evening about the wines themselves that I’ve picked out for trying this week. But first an apology from me. I was horribly lazy yesterday and used the term British Wine as a catch all term for wines from Britain. It’s been rightly pointed out that that’s wrong, I was just being lazy!
