English Wine Week (almost)

And not forgetting Welsh of course... Oops, meant to post something about this a week ago, as it's all over on Sunday 6th! Anyway, never mind, the important thing is to get adventurous and go out and buy a bottle of English wine (try your local independent wine store, a good supermarket like Waitrose or wine bar like Artisan & Vine in southwest London: click on link to their site below, right hand column for more details). My tip would be to try one of the several really quite fine sparkling wines being made by wineries such as Ridgeview, Nyetimber (both in W. Sussex) or Camel Vineyards (Cornwall). Better still, why not go and visit a wine estate near you and have a tasting in situ; much more fun. Lots of info on what to try, buy, do and where: englishwineweek.co.uk
