Join us for a special evening of English Wine tasting in the bookshop with the indomitable Oz Clarke – a long time champion of English Wines – as we celebrate the fully revised and updated English Wine.
The modern view of English wine is of a country amazingly blessed with vast tracts of soil suitable for viticulture, much of it almost indistinguishable from the chalky slopes of Champagne and Chablis. It is also of a country taking full advantage of the vagaries of climate change to ripen Chardonnay and Pinot Noir to levels perfect for sparkling wine, and increasingly excellent still wines. English Wine is a brilliant guide to where to find the best English and Welsh wines, from fizz, whites, impressive reds and even dessert and orange wines.
This is the one essential book you will need to learn about a fascinating subject that has captivated the
wine world. England’s tiny wine industry has come of age and now produces world class wines, especially fizz. This evening Oz will tell you about his favourite producers along with interesting wines to taste.
‘It’s brilliant. Exactly what’s wanted. -‘ Hugh Johnson
