Discover English Wines (Colchester)
You may have heard that English wines have been coming on leaps and bounds in the last 10 years. There was a bumper crop in 2018 and the word is that the quality is also extraordinary so here is your chance to see for yourself just what England winemakers have to offer
England shares the same chalky soils and climate as Champagne and has come out above many famous Champagne houses in expert blind tastings, particularly the like of Ridgeview, Nyetimber, Langham and Chapel Down – to name just a few of the 500 (and growing) number of vineyards we have!
We’ll be tasting a selection of styles from Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to the more unusual English varieties Bacchus (one of my favourites!) and Dornfelder…. And of course some fabulous fizz which is what has really put England on the wine map!
We will also conduct a blind tasting between a top English sparkling wine and a Champagne. Can you tell the difference? Which one will you prefer?
Great fun as well as fascinating, this is our first ever 'All England tasting' reflecting the growing importance of these wines.
This evening makes a great present and can be bought as a Gift Voucher valid for 2 years!
