Gorgeous on Monday - English Wines

With all the concern about food miles and the provenance of our food, why aren't we all drinking more English wine?

We have several great wineries in this country, mainly in the most southerly counties, but even as north as Yorkshire, surprisingly.

A great favourite, regularly winning awards for their wines, is Chapel Down in Tenterden, Kent.

Their English Rose is the perfect chilled summer evening wine, and the Flint and Bacchus whites are just gorgeous too, and the sparkling wines are a match for champagne for any occasion - competitively priced too.  If you're anywhere near Tenterden, pay the winery a visit, you can taste the wines and  there's a great foodie shop, and a fabulous restaurant. After a visit on a hot, sunny day last year (the 10am wine tasting felt very wrong!) and a wander aroung the herb garden and the vines, Chapel Down has much to recommend it!
