Charlemagne Wine Club - 2004 Tastings

A Taste of Summer - English Wine presented by Julia Trustram Eve
There was a time when English wine was the province of eccentric enthusiasts following old time recipes and gardening techniques.
Not any more.
The winemakers and viticulturalists with the knowledge and techniques practised in the new world have been here for some time and so has the financial investment. With good sites and a warm summer we can produce quality wines. Indeed, Award Winning wines. Several producers of English sparkling wines have even been able to embarrass producers in Champagne by beating them in competition on their home ground.
Julia Trustram Eve from English Wine Producers will present a selection of summer flavours for us to savour.
