Over the past couple of months, Exton Park’s wines have really hit the heights – and touched the stars along the way. As one of the ‘rising stars’ of the English Sparkling Wine world, we try to be seen in all the right places – come with us on a little tour…
First stop is snowy St Moritz where earlier in the season Exton Park provided the bottle prizes alongside the glittering trophies for the closely-fought Inter-Services Cresta Run Championships. We certainly ‘hit the heights’ there. Winners this year were the Army team who were certainly able to celebrate in style, English style of course.
Then we journey to Westminster and the Houses of Parliament, where last month several English wineries were invited to take part in an English Sparkling wine tasting, led by national wine writer Matthew Jukes, and organised by the WSTA (Wine & Spirit Trade Association), who do such great work lobbying Parliament on behalf of our industry. Naturally, Exton Park was part of the gang. MPs from all parties attended the tasting to learn more about the delights of our home-grown sparklers. One of the hits of the event was our own Blanc de Noirs NV, created by Corinne especially for English entertaining. Tops again!
If you are into dining in some of the county’s top restaurants, then look out for Exton Park on the wine list as sommeliers keep ahead of the trends and offer English Sparkling wines to their customers. Aiming high, Oblix Restaurant on the 32nd Floor of The Shard above the City of London now serves Exton Park Blanc de Noirs NV – while at the other end of the country, up in Cumbria, the two Michelin starred L’Enclume – currently the top restaurant in England, according to the Good Food Guide, has chosen to pour the Exton Park Rosé Brut NV.
Finally, as April heralds in spring and the Easter break, Exton Park Vineyard will also be sending its first orders to the USA and Italy – further developing export markets and spreading the word about our fantastic English Sparkling Wines.
Yes, we have certainly hit the high spots recently!
