Did you know that England Produced the Best Sparkling Rose in the World in 2009 and 2010

I love drinking wine and champagne and occasionally like to pretend that I am a connoisseur - in reality all I really know is that I like dry white wine, Pinot Grigio tends to be my regular choice, and Pino Noir is my favorite red! What I couldn't quite believe had excaped my knowledge was that England produced the best Sparkling Rose in the WORLD! Its called Camel Valley and they produce their wine in Cornwall! 

Apparently lots of people are investing in British vineyards so maybe it's time for us to start challenging the big guns in France and Italy - how grape would that be!!!

A few weeks ago I visited an English Vineyard to brush up on my knowledge and the friend I stayed with, who happens to be a proper wine expert, had a few bottles stored away....

  1. Also try the Nyetimber Classic Cuvee 2005 (available from Waitrose and good wine merchants). This is produced by a winemaker who comes from champagne. It is the most impressive english sparkling wine I have had.
