England

The production of sparkling wine in England is by no means a new phenomenon. Commercial production of bottle fermented sparkling wines from grapes grown in England started in the 1960s. However the industry has undergone a renaissance in recent years and English Sparkling has emerged as a serious alternative to Champagne thanks to our favourable climate and soil types.

Today, there are over 100 vineyards in England producing sparkling wines and Nyetimber is one of the largest producers. In 2010, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir were the two most commonly planted grape varieties in English vineyards. Along with Pinot Meunier, the three varieties combined accounted for around 40% of vines planted, which appears to reflect a significant growth in interest in English sparkling wines.
