The Best English Sparkling Wines

England has a repuation for making world-class sparkling wines.  Multiple producers have numerous national and international awards. English Sparkling Wine is poured at big sporting events such as Wimbledon. And perhaps the best validation of all, several Champagne houses have bought land in the UK to make English Sparkling Wine.  Tattinger and Louis Pommery will be releasing wines from their own fruit in early 2024 and late 2023 respectively.

Marasby has 40 of England’s best winemakers listing their English Sparkling wines on Marasby Market, and all these are available to buy direct at vineyard gate prices.

Classic Cuvée

A Classic Cuvée is a blend of grapes, most usually,  Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier in varying proportions. It is often seen as a producer’s benchmark sparkling wine and is usually the least expensive in their range.

You’ll find recommendations for English Sparkling Classic Cuvées available to buy on Marasby Market below.

English Blanc de Blancs

Literally translated from French it means white of white. Ie white wine from white (green) grapes.  Most commonly Chardonnay, although some other varietals are permitted. These English Sparkling Wines tend to be crisp, pure and refreshing.

English Blanc de Noirs

Many English Sparkling Rosés are made from the Pinots, although of course they are not Blanc de Noirs as the wine is pink.
