Full English

No, I’m not talking about breakfast (although wine at breakfast was an entirely acceptable notion during lockdown). It’s English Wine Week and I got to taste my way through a selection of brilliant wines (with Jack Whitehall!) on last weekend’s Saturday Kitchen. Details are on the programme’s website here and I’ve added a couple of my favourites to this week’s reviews below. Visit winegb.co.uk to see what’s going on from now until Sunday with vineyards offering real/virtual tours and/or selling direct from their cellar doors. The English wine industry is young compared with most – we’re in the teenage years, the wines can sometimes be difficult – but there’s no doubt we’ve now got the climate, soils, grapes and people determined to make great wines here. Time to go for the full English.

  1. I have had enough of lockdown now, it’s really getting me down. Winning the prize draw of a case of your lovely wines would give me something to look forward to!

    Even once in blue moon, would it be possible to mention equivalent wines available in Ireland ? Even the wines you mention in Tesco do not ever seem to be available here
