Backing our best growers

Hi

Just looking at support our best growers and dissappointed to see no mention of UK Growers.

I have been trying to support UK vineyards as much as possible as their sales to restaurants
etc have plummeted.
Its a shame our UK based society is not joining in.

That’s a great point - we should support and champion home grown talent

Hi @johnmankelow, and welcome to the community. I think there were a few English sparkling wines on the list from memory, with a discount when bought by the case. There were certainly a couple from Nyetimber included. It might be worth another look if this is something you enjoy.

Edit, here’s a couple of links, hope that helps:

Thanks Benedict. I had certainly not got that far into the list.
I think it kind of reinforces my point that perhaps it should be page 1 not page 20!
happy drinking.

“I think it kind of reinforces my point that perhaps it should be page 1 not page 20!”

But why should they be on page 1. I know that some English people think this country is great, but in terms of quality and quantity UK wine production is small compared with many other countries. So I think page 20 is about right !

I’ve enjoyed their rose very much before, but never tried the red. Will add to the wishlist!
