Hampshire Wines

English wines are enjoying a surge in popularity at the moment, with sparkling wines riding the crest of the wave. The vineyards of Hampshire, situated on the South Downs, sit on the same swathe of chalk soils as Champagne. The cool climate is essential for retaining the acidity in grapes required to make sparkling wines. Light, acidic wines are the base of the best sparkling wines as they allow for the addition of sugar to start a second fermentation in bottle without the wine becoming too sweet. The majority of the sparkling wines produced here are a blend of the classic Champagne grapes Pinot Noir, Pinot Menuier and Chardonnay, often aged for long periods in bottle to soften the natural acidity and verve of these stunning wines.
