English sparkling wine
Lyme Bay Winery in Devon has introduced two new sparkling wines to its portfolio – a blanc de noirs and rosé – which join its existing Classic Cuvée and Brut Reserve sparklers.
Conservative MP Nusrat Ghani has called for English wines to be served at diplomatic events to help “oil the wheels of the Brexit negotiations”.
Naked Wines is seeking a name for its English sparkling wine, following confirmation of the blend chosen by its investors.
The UK’s wine industry has announced that it will plant a record one million vines this year, making wine production ‘one of the fastest growing agricultural sectors in the UK.’
