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!
The CSWWC is run by three sparkling wine experts, with some serious game in the industry. Everything’s tasted blind, which means they don’t know what they’re tasting nor who makes it. It’s about as standardized and fair a competition that you can get, which makes the British success even better.
Of course the big winners were, as you can imagine, French and Italian wines, with Louis Roederer alone scooping 10 of the 127 gold medals awarded in the entire competition!!
But huge congrats to:
Looking forward to trying all these at the awards dinner in September. Will have to sort out a tuxedo that actually fits me this year 😉
