  • Focus 1 : England

    For Mediterranean winemakers, English winegrowing is often considered as a joke. How to obtain the the required mature grapes with such latitude and climate?

    Yet there are over 400 domains in England.
    In the Downs, the south of the West Country (along the Valley of the Thames and the Severn) you will find more and more vineyards.
    Meet these oenologists (often European) who have had the audacity to establish themselves in this country, taste their wines in wild nature with sublime landscapes.

    Discover the south of the country, its heritage, its landscapes and its customs.
    Take a stroll through Canterbury, one of the oldest cities in the country, with its charming cobblestone streets and half-timbered houses. Spend a day in Oxford (famous for its university), indulge in Brighton's young and festive atmosphere, stroll along the cliffs of the Seven Sisters or discover the Castle of Arundel, a witness to the history of the Kingdom of England. Don't miss London and its must-see attractions: Westminster, Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Tower Bridge, London Eye…
    You can also soak up Wales culture with Cardiff.

    Follow the rythm of English people while enjoying the country's specialties. What's on? English breakfast, Fish & Chips, pudding or tea time.

    Taste a unique experience, see England in a different way: break down your prejudices on its gastronomy and its oenology.

    Focus 2 : Wine regions

    Most of the farms are small and intimate vineyards of 3/4 ha, in which passionate winemakers fight against the elements to develop wines of high quality.

    The producers mainly produce white wine from Seyval blanc, Müller-Thurgau, Reichensteiner and Bacchus (hybrid grape variety from Sylvaner, Riesling and Müller-Thurgau).
    You will enjoy whites, often dry, acidic, lively and aromatic. It is a wine that ages very well.

    For the red, Dornfelder and Rondo grape varieties are present, the winemakers have been working for several years to improve the quality of the reds.

    Increasingly, The English estates plat champenois grape varieties (Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay). In fact, the characteristics of this geographical area are similar to those of Champagne (chalky soils and a northern and oceanic climate). Today the sparkling English wines are the best representative of the country.
