Bring in English Wine Week in style!
English Wine Week begins this Saturday, a week to raise awareness of the fabulous wines that are produced across the country. Vineyards will be opening their doors to welcome visitors, offering tours, tastings and special offers. There will also be events taking place throughout the week to celebrate English Wine Week, find out what’s going on here.
London Cru, central London’s first winery will be holding wine maker courses providing Londoners with the opportunity to get involved with the winemaking process. As well as learning everything you need to know about the wine making process you also get to try your hand at making your own blends. You even get to bottle up your own wine to take home with you! Fancy giving it a go? Find out more here. We’re pleased to offer several of London Cru’s wines on our list.
To celebrate English Wine Week we have created a special recipe using English sparkling wine. Jascots, a specialist wine supplier that we work with has a lovely one that works beautifully in this recipe, the Three Choirs ‘Classic Curvée, NV from Gloucestershire.
We hope you enjoy it!
