Seven English wines to make us all proud – with full stockist list!
A nice mention for Meonhill Reserve Brut NV from top English wine-writer Matthew Jukes in this article picking 7 of the best English sparkling wines. Contrary to what the article says, at this point, they are not open to visitors, as they are a working farm and health and safety wouldn’t allow it!
“NV Meonhill, Petersfield, Hampshire (£24.75 – £26.99, The Fareham Wine Cellar tel.01329 822733). This wine is actually made by a Champagne producer! Imogen and Didier Pierson planted a four hectare vineyard seven years ago and this wine is made from 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir. It is jolly smart as you would expect with a very fine palate.”
lease note Fareham Wine Cellar price is currently £23.99 per bottle!

“Impressively clean, well made, well balanced and refreshing. Super-clean debut bottling based on 2008 and 2009 vintages but without much complexity. Half and half Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from near Petersfield, Hampshire, and made by Champenois Didier Pierson.” 16/20 Jancis Robinson
A great alternative to Champagne and an ideal English sparkling wine to celebrate the Queen’s Jubilee.
