Think the English can’t do wine? Think again……

When we think of wine, the legendary vineyards in France and Spain usually come to mind. So it may be surprising to know that the English make some pretty fabulous wine!

This week (18th – 26th June 2022) we are celebrating English Wine Week! A celebration of our beautiful English wines and a week which promotes homegrown wines across the UK. Some of the best vineyards in the UK welcome are opening their doors (and vines) to the public for tours and tasting’s. we urge you to try something different!

Here at Maverick HQ we’re cracking open a bottle of one of our favourites – the wonderful Greyfriars Cuvee from the beautiful Greyfriars vineyard in The Surrey Hills www.greyfriarsvineyard.co.uk. A lively fizz with tasting notes of green apple and lemon. The grapes are hand-harvested from the south facing English vineyards planted on the Hogs Back in Surrey.

English wineries have been hit hard due to the pandemic because they depend heavily on tourism and restaurants for trade – so lets support local and raise a glass to our fabulous homegrown wines!
