Heard it on the grapevine? They’re not just good, but officially brilliant! England’s favourite tipples – from its crisp sparkling whites to its treacly dark ales – are an award-winning string in our country’s food and drink bow. And with the soldierly ranks of vines basking in the warm summer sunshine and hops and berries slowly swelling on the bough, this is a great time to get out and discover the quirky stories and picturesque settings behind our grapes and our grain. From vineyard tours and gin tastings, to boutique breweries and beer festivals, we say swig, savour and same again please!
