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

Hattingley Valley

Another name to watch is Hattingley Valley, which has been bottling fizz near Winchester since 2008. It recently caught the attention of British MW duo Susie Barrie and Peter Richards, who teamed up with Hattingley last year to produce “a top-notch, small-production Hampshire Blanc de Blancs” from the 2016 vintage, donating the proceeds to charity.

Classic Cuvée from Sussex gets 14/1 from William Hill, but Ladbrokes likes its chances with a shorter 6/1.

    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.
