Celebration of English Wines
There is a lot to celebrate about English Wines right now. A bumper harvest in 2018, and more than 3 million vines being planted in 2019, the application for a Sussex Sparkling region underway and awards all over the place.
With annual sales of English wines exceeding £100m for the first time and predictions of a wine tourism boom and 30,000 jobs in the industry by 2030 it is an exciting time for English wines.
This tasting will guide you through what is happening in terms of English wines right now and we will celebrate our country's wines by tasting seven well chosen sparkling and still wines that showcase the quality and breadth of styles available today.
Wines on tasting:
- Oxney Organic Estate Classic Cuvee 2016
- Rathfinny Estate Blanc de Noirs 2015
- Bluebell Vineyard Barrel Aged Blanc de Blancs 2013
- Bluebell Vineyard Ashdown Bacchus 2018
- Lyme Bay Signature White Cuvee 2018
- Albourne Estate Estate Selection White 2018
- Bolney Pinot Noir 2018
Marie and Marielle from Bluebell will be at the tasting to share stories about Bluebell and their two wines.
The tasting includes hand out sheets, ISO tasting glasses, nibbles and a quality tutored tasting of English Wines.
