Oz Clarke on English Wine
We cannot wait for what will be an excellent event with the indomitable Oz Clarke! A fully revised and updated edition with new entries on key wineries, vineyards and producers from around the country, Oz Clarke’s fabulous English Wine is sure to be your companion this autumn.
One of the great pleasures of wine is to drink it where it is grown and made. The opportunity to meet growers, winemakers and winery owners is what draws people to visit wineries and to ‘have an experience in the vineyard’. This is your essential guide to find out about the country’s world beating sparklers and still wines that have captivated the wine world.
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, and 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. This book helps you find the country’s wines, from fizz, whites, some impressive reds and even dessert and orange wines.
