Upperton Vineyard: Andy Rogers surveys the lie of his land
To celebrate English Wine Week (goes to their website) this week, I've (finally) updated my now 14-page ("and counting") mini-guide to English sparkling wines. This includes profiles of 15 exciting English wine estates, vineyards, wineries and brands and notes on their 'Champagne method' fizz ranges. Featuring (three new entries) Upperton, Brightwell and Hattingley Valley, as well as updates on Digby, Henners, Hush Heath, Jenkyn Place, Danebury, Gusbourne, Chapel Down, Bolney, Bluebell, Ridgeview, Knightor and Furleigh. Plus a few facts, figures and thoughts on where the English (and Welsh) wine industry is at with the latest on vintage 2014 etc. Available as a PDF mini-mag with pics emailed to you for just £2.50 (about €3.50 or less than $4) - buy it by card or your own Paypal account (although you don't need one to do this or subscribe).
