Monthly Merchant: Break out the British Bubbly

It's over to Tasting Room Bath - our Wine Merchant of the Month for September - to round off a month of brilliant wine recommendations...

For our final Wine Wednesday we want to go out with a bang - a pop, shall we say, of corks and fizz!

One of our favourite tipples of the bubbly stuff has to be this fabulous Avonleigh Organic Sparkling (£19.95). We’re a big fan of promoting things that are local and organic, and this super drink ticks both those boxes. It comes straight from a vineyard in Bradford on Avon, nestled in the Cotswold hills, and purists will be happy to learn that it’s planted in organic soil. The result is a distinctive and wonderfully fresh elderflower hint, and the fact it’s been produced using Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes gives it a pop of green apple flavour. What two better tastes to sum up our english summer, already fading into memory?

So raise a glass to approaching autumn; warm firesides and kicking up leaves - and a glass to Vinspire UK for having us as their September independent producer! We hope to be back one day.
