Event Description

English Sparkling Wine has achieved international acclaim in recent years, often beating Champagne and other sparkling wines in blind-tasting competitions. The quality of sparkling wine from English wine producers is now truly world-class.

But like many areas of wine, there are several sub-divisions of style, each with different flavour profiles, and the meaning of the terminology on the wines’ labels can sometimes be less than obvious.

Brut is the most widely produced style, and there are so many excellent examples that it seems almost egregious to pick only a couple out. However, the six that we will go for on the night are wines that offer superb quality with good value for money.

We shall try to stay as local as possible, with examples from Hampshire  (Hattingley Valley, Hambledon, Raimes, Black Chalk, Exton Park, The Grange, Louis Pommery, etc), Test Valley (Goodworth, All Angels), Wiltshire (Winding Wood), or even Dorset (Langham), as well as a bubbly from the infamous Kent region (Chapel Down) ... a truly eye-opening and tastebuds-pleasing experience!

THERE WILL ALSO BE THE OPPORTUNITY TO MEET THE GRAPE GROWER BEHIND ONE OF THOSE LABELS! Come and ask all your bubbly questions to our specialist and enthusiast English vineyard owner ... DO NOT MISS OUT!
