This week is English Wine Week and there is no better way to celebrate than by trying as much as you can! We’ve opted to taste Chapel Down’s English Sparkling Rosé and English Sparkling Reserve, both of which are made exclusively for Marks & Spencer. The crisp, dry, apple flavours of the Reserve make a delicious drop that would be perfect as a pre-dinner drink and the more rounded, fruity Rosé would match really well with a starter of sushi.
The popularity of English wine is growing and growing, and for good reason. Despite our sometimes abysmal weather, the climate and the soil types lend themselves to making good quality and great tasting wines that are great for any occasion!
With around 500 vineyards across England and Wales there’s sure to be one near you so get out there and explore!
