A growing trend… English grapes!

English grapes are making a splash on the global scene- especially the bubbles!  And some of them are being cultivated only about an hour outside the city.   At a recent local wine tasting, we heard the rumour yet again about French growers buying up land in areas like Sussex and Kent. Interestingly, our English vineyards share similar soil types and climate conditions to those in Champagne, France.  And with warming climate trends – the future for English Wine is pointing in a favourable direction. The numbers alone tell the story- it’s simply growing fast.   Raise a glass to English Wine!
