British Wine

The United Kingdom has been contributing to the world of wines and spirits since the Roman era. The Romans had wine with them wherever they went forth and conquered, and stumbling upon ancient wine chalices are nothing new. There is evidence of a Roman era vineyard at Wollaston in the Nene Valley, England with deposits of vine pollen dating back to this time. This suggests there were attempts at grape-growing, though it’s not known if this succeeded. 

The Romans were gone by the 4th century AD, and wine production was limited to Christian orders for sacramental purposes. The land was otherwise unstable due to nearly constant wars between factions such as the Angles, Saxons and Jutes. Most of the Christians who had planted small vineyards retreated to the islands, which weren’t suitable for grape-growing. By the 6th century, they returned to the mainland and vineyards were once again planted, but trade with other parts of Europe also increased. Higher quality wines could be obtained Read more »

  • Hattingley Brut Rose Hattingley Valley England


    Chalky, dusty aromas of light wildflower and toast with hints of cherry and strawberry. Pleasant fruit notes of cherry and strawberry on the palate as well, with tart citrus flavor filling in on the mid palate, some mixed berry and a refreshing character throughout. This is lightly floral and finishes clean with a touch of red fruit candy and a ... Read More

  • Ridgeview Brut Bloomsbury England


    Toasted lemon and melon aromas with tightly focused citrus aromas and hints of butterscotch. Bold tingling acidity on the palate with quite tart lemon drop and grapefruit flavors, tart citrus and a toasted, almost smoky almond and oak spice mid palate, finishing with some classic biscuit notes and more zesty citrus acidity.

  • Bulldog London Dry Gin NV


    Opens with Cinnamon and White Pepper then a bit of Lime and other herbs. A sweet sensation on the tongue, then berries and white grapes. Smooths out and becomes somewhat 'oily' and the Grape, Lime, and Berries notes become even more noticeable when ice and water are added. Not much of any Juniper notes, but an interesting 'Gin' varietal neverthe... Read More
