Does that send shudders up your spine – conjuring up the sickly taste of Concorde wine in the bad old days before all the wines of the world were available in the supermarket down the road? Today I went for a very smart Sunday lunch at the Three Choirs vineyard in Gloucestershire – delicious food, but their wine is also lush. As good as the best NZ whites, in my untutored opinion.
It’s great to see a different sort of agriculture in the English countryside, I’m hoping to see more of the slopes of the south west covered in vines over the next few years. Who knows, maybe our wine will become a big export staple as we pull ourselves out the EU.
