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


Another contender for the wedding breakfast is Nyetimber.

However, the royal family wants to avoid a scandal at all costs, and Nyetimber has a slightly choppy relationship with London’s high society. The winery was blacklisted by The Savoy last year after its owner, Eric Heerema, allegedly smashed glasses and insulted bar staff at a drinks reception.

Still, the bookies have high hopes for the Sussex drinks maker. Ladbrokes put Nyetimber’s sparklers at 3/1, but the odds are longer with William Hill at 4/1

    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.
