The toast of England: Five sparkling wines to celebrate English Wine Week

English wines are booming and are the toast of British wine drinkers. Consider yourself a Champagne lover? English bubbles are produced from the same grapes and in exactly the same way. The soils upon which our English vines grow are similar to the world-famous French region too.

Better news for your bank balance though, as most of our English fizz doesn’t carry the same hefty price-tag!

To celebrate English Wine Week (18-26 June), we’ve dug into the unbiased ratings and reviews of Vivino’s 60 million-strong community to find the top-rated English sparkling wines under £30.

Nyetimber Classic Cuvee Brut – £29.99 – 4.2 / 5 Vivino Star Rating

Chapel Down Rosé Brut N.V. – £29.00 – 4.2 / 5 Vivino Star Rating

Kingscote Estate Brut 2019 – £18.50 – 4.2 / 5 Vivino Star Rating

Hattingley Valley Blanc de Blanc – £24.99 – 4.1 / 5 Vivino Star Rating

Wiston Rosé Brut N.V – £28.95 – 4.0 / 5 Vivino Star Rating

Chapel Down Rose is considered to be a wine fit for a (future) King, with Prince William and Kate serving it at their wedding.

There’s also some amazing English white wine’s too..

The Bacchus grape, named after the Roman God of Wine, has become somewhat of a flagship for Britain. Its taste profile sits somewhere between a Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Grigio, with an eloquent English twist.

Top-rated English white wines:

Davenport Vineyards Horsmonden 2019 – £17.40 – 4.2 / 5 Vivino Star Rating

About Vivino

Vivino empowers people to enjoy wine to the fullest. Wine is about so much more than just a great label; it’s about an experience and community and, of course, what’s in the bottle. That’s where Vivino comes in. As the world’s largest online wine marketplace and most downloaded wine app, the Vivino community is made up of millions of wine drinkers from around the world, coming together to make buying the right wine simple, straightforward, and fun. Vivino uses crowd-sourced data to personalize wine recommendations so that every community member feels confident about their wine choices. Created for everyone who likes wine—from the wine curious to the wine enthusiast—the Vivino app is available for free on both Apple and Android devices.

With nearly two billion wine label scans and hundreds of millions of unbiased reviews and ratings, no one is better placed than Vivino’s 60 million-strong community to bring wine drinkers of the world closer to the wines they’ll love.

Vivino uses star ratings (out of five) to guide you to the top-rated wines, before using ‘Match for You’ to customise the results so they’re 100% personalised to your own tastes. Afterall, everyone has different tastes and interprets star ratings differently – a wine with a 4.2 / 5 star rating for you may only be a 3.5 / 5 star rating for someone else.

The more wines you rate and review, the better ‘Match for You’ works. Once you have rated at least five wines, you will see a match score on every wine based on a 100 percent scale – entirely customised to you.

Vivino can be downloaded free of charge from the Apple Store and Google Play store.
