Yes, I have just bought a crate of Nyetimber sparkling wine for a party from Waitrose because there was a blind tasting and English sparkling wine came out on top. You think you have to buy champagne but you should really just have what tastes best.”

No, I have never tried it. I usually just stick with what I know, but I don’t think English sparkling wine is well advertised in supermarkets or online, which is where I purchase wine. If I saw it on the shelf I would happily try it.”

Yes, I had it at a wedding—it was a Chapel Down sparkling and I thought it was as good as some champagne. I haven’t seen English wine available to buy, but I’ve spent a lot of time in France so I have a natural preference for French.”
