England becomes home to French sparkling wine

09 - may - 17

The vineyards of England have been growing some of the best grapes needed to make top quality sparkling wine. The sparkling wine production in the country has increased rapidly over the past few years. And the quality of the wine is so good that many have even compared the bubblies to their more famous peer, the French champagne.  

And now, a French champagne manufacturer, Taittinger, has selected a vineyard in England’s Kent region to plant its famous grapes, reports The wine, which will be bottled in 2023, is said to be named Domaine Evremond in honour of Charles de Saint-Évremond, the French writer who popularised champagne in England almost 300 years ago. The company eventually aims to sell about 300,000 bottles of the wine each year.

Taittinger bought the vineyard in 2015 and has partnered with a local English winery and some private investors to start the company which is expected to become a multimillion pound venture in the years to come.

“We were very impressed by the quality of English sparkling wine already produced here. We believe the combination of chalk soils, climate and topography of our site in Kent are ideal for producing quality sparkling wine. We are aiming to create a wine with a taste that is something truly exceptional. These attributes are perfect for grape growing, and are very similar to the terroir in Champagne. For us it was a natural step,” said Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, the company’s president
