Hands up who was watching The Apprentice last night on BBC?  The teams had to promote awareness of English sparkling wine.

English sparkling wine Nyetimber has revamped its packaging in time for the UK’s summer of celebrations.

Travel Retail operator World of Patria International has reached agreement with Chase Distillery to offer its range of spirits and liqueurs.

English wines have come of age – Georg Riedel has chosen suitable stemware for their wines.

The United Kingdom Vineyards Association (UKVA) has unveiled new wine schemes for English and Welsh still wines, in line with the wine regime changes implemented by the EU.  A new wine scheme for sparkling wines will be introduced later this year.

Sparkling wines were consistently impressive.
