The UK is one of the historic centres of the world wine trade, and so in this country we’re well used to being able to choose from a huge variety of different grapes and flavours in our wines.

The English wine industry is very aware of this, which is why despite our cooler climate, you can now buy English wines that suit every nose and palate!

English Sparkling Wines

English Sparkling Wine is now rated as one of the world’s great wine styles. The best of these are sometimes referred to as ‘English Champagne’, because these English sparkling wines are made in the same ‘traditional method’ made famous by the Champagne region in France.

However, at Marasby we think that English sparkling wines are even more delicious than Champagnes – and compared like for like, they’re usually better value!

While you can find a small English sparkling wine selection in most larger supermarkets these days, the English selection will typically come from a small number of England’s biggest producers. If you want to go beyond these and discover some of England’s best sparkling wines, here are five of our favourites:

English Still Wines

England has established a world-class reputation for its Champagne-beating sparkling wines, yet in the last few vintages, it has begun to emerge as the world’s most exciting cool-climate region for still wines too.

You might have heard about England’s chalky soils, but in fact many of the best places for growing English still white, red and rosé wines don’t have any chalky soil at all – places like the Crouch Valley in Essex, and the Stour Valley in Suffolk.

Many of the smaller English still wine producers make just a few thousand bottles a year – far too small a production to supply the supermarkets. That’s why it’s best to discover them on Marasby, and then buy on Marasby Market direct from the winemaker at the same price at the vineyard gate.
