That’s what Prince Charles’ Aston Martin runs on.
Two things: England has wine? And, there is such a thing as extra wine?
Yes, England has wine. There’s a reason you’ve never heard of it. It’s the same reason there’s a surplus!
So that’s why the Total Wine hasn’t got a British aisle…
See, now I’m very curious. Is any of it drinkable? You know, in case I run into it somewhere in the US. I want to be prepared.
The current Decanter (British wine magazine) has an article about British bubbly. Pretty good but not yet at the level of the French is the verdict. Parts of Britain have similar terroir to Champagne and global warming is said to be making it a good location for sparkling wines. British wine (and cooking) are no joke any more.
The Wine Economist
Thanks, Mike! (Check out the Wine economist link, guys, it’s pretty interesting- or at least to me, I do love to dabble in wine and economics, so…)
It’s an interesting point you bring up about global warming changing Britain into better wine country. Guess Total Wine will have to redraw their floor plan soon- Canada might even get some! Oh boy!
So since WI is on my mind, I will disclose that, against all odds, they have wine there too! I don’t think it’s global warming yet. It’s mostly apple and cranberry wines, or made from imported grapes. But they’re working on it! They do not have a wine magazine (that I know of) yet.
