French Migration to be Caused by Climate Change

Seen in the newspaper recently: a story that the managing director of the champagne house Roederer and his vineyard director have been quartering the Kent countryside examining vineyards in the belief that the changing climate may force their company to consider the desperate step of joining the rosbifs across La Manche.

As many of us know already, England is quite capable of producing fabulous sparkling wine on a par with all but the best Champagne can conjure. I have been half-jokingly talking about planting up the chalk downland of Wiltshire for some time. There is a note of seriousness creeping into this conversation, however. The major stumbling block is, of course, one of expense.

So if there's anyone out there with a ridiculously large pile of cash with which they're heartily disaffected, plus a desire to have a cuvée of Wiltshire White named after them, do get in touch.
