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.
