January New Wines & News

The pinnacle of Pinot Noir – a trio of dazzling 2018s
We are delighted to have recently added these three exceptional 2018 Pinot Noirs to our list. From some of the best English wine producers, from the best vintage seen in the modern era, these are truly world class examples of Pinot Noir. All display wonderfully rich fruit qualities, as you would expect from such a warm vintage, and each has its own particular charms. To find out more about these wines, click here.

The Davenport is normally priced at £19.99, the Sharpham at £20.99 and the Charles Palmer at £24.99, but we are delighted to be able to offer readers of this Newsletter 10% off purchases of these three wines during January. Please use the coupon JAN20PNO at the checkout.

Vermouth, gin, brandy, vodka, liqueurs, beer, cider – it’s not all wine 
While English wine is at the heart of Grape Britannia’s mission, we have a small but perfectly formed selection of other English alcoholic beverages, from boutique beers to a 23 year-aged brandy, which we probably don’t shout about enough. Pictured above is Albourne Estate’s 40 Semi-Dry Vermouth – gorgeous on ice but also a wonderfully versatile cocktail ingredient.
