English wine ...

Down below the coffee shop is the cellar. Perfect for keeping the home made tipples a bit stronger than coffee or tea :-)

English wine ...

Postby suffolk » April 9th, 2017, 6:01 pm

OH brought a bottle of Norfolkwine home from the farm shop yesterday ... http://www.winbirri.com/english-wine/ - the rosé is very good indeed ... not quite as 'minerally as the Provencal rosés that are my favourite, but not fruity/flowery like some of the Californian rosés. It's going down very well indeed :cocktail: :cocktail:

:tu:
I've had a few nice English wines over the years but don't think I've ever had a pink one....
Mainly from Chapel Down
https://www.chapeldown.com/

And Wycombe *now part of something else) and Hambledon
If you ever get the chance try one of the Nyetimber fizzes that often beat champagnes in blind tastings (I took Ian one, he liked it)

There are a surprising number of English vineyards

There are several round here. I went on a tour of this one a while back, https://www.abecketts.co.uk/one of our party ordered the fizz for her daughter's wedding afterwards - and they are quite discerning people. English wine has come a long way since the vinegary stuff we endured in the 70's.

No wonder I couldn't find Wycombe vineyard, I meant Wickham in Hampshire, now part of Three Choirs. Doh.
