Wine has been produced in England for a thousand years. It’s been going from strength to strength in recent decades, with particularly British sparkling wine performing well on the international award circuit. Recently, top French wine producers have been looking for outstanding terroir in England, where they can produce their future masterpieces. Some, like Taittinger, have already found that magical piece of land in Kent and planted their first vines. Meanwhile, more Brits than ever before are taking advantage of the favourable climate and growing conditions to open their own wineries, transforming the British wine industry.
