Champagne Taittinger has announced that two years after the first plantings at Domaine Evremond’s vineyard site in Kent, a further 8.5 hectares of vines were planted last month.

South African wine estate Kleine Zalze has signalled its intention to target the independent retailing channel in the UK by moving its entire portfolio of wines to Hatch Mansfield.
