Ladbrokes and William Hill predict which English wines will be served at the royal wedding

Chapel Down

Chapel Down is still the hot favourite to represent English wine at the impending nuptials, and rumours have abounded for months that it will become one of the royal family’s go-to producers for special occasions.

It was widely reported that Prince William and Catherine Middleton served Chapel Down’s award-winning Rosé Brut at the reception of their royal wedding in 2011 to celebrate British producers.

The Kentish winery was also the sponsor of one of the races at Ascot’s Festival of Food and Wine Raceday last year. Some 5,000 bottles of its English sparkling wine were sold to punters at Royal Ascot last summer.

Ladbrokes have issued odds on Chapel Down of 2/1, while William Hill is even more certain giving the winery evens.

    I hope its Pol Roger (as its naturally the best choice anyway) and hope the bookies take a complete spanking. English wines are for tourists.

    I would be absolutely amazed if they don’t go for a top notch English Sparkling Wine (any of the wines featured in your article are more than up to the job). Why would you go for a French Champagne when there is so much amazing home-grown fizz?

    Got to be Hattingley Valley, surely? and Reece, are you completely mad? English fizz regularly scores higher in blind tastings with Champagne, and Pol Roger is an acquired taste for most, it’s mild salinity not to most people’s liking – plus, it’s French! You really need to get out more, or just open your mind if you really believe that English wines are just for tourists – you are seriously ill-informed.
