Discover the pleasures of English wine, still and sparkling with ‘Sussex by the glass’, by Liz Sagues, a book that takes the story of Sussex wine to an intimate level, focusing on one county and two trailblazing winemaking families.
Sussex produces more wine than any other English county, and the Bolney and Ridgeview estates are pioneers in bringing fine examples to many, many consumers. Both are rare in the modern history of English wine, being multi-generation businesses – and they are both now headed by the daughters of their founders.
Author Liz Sagues has had privileged access to both estates, interviewing many of the people involved in creating what today are two major brands in English wine. She tells a fascinating story of how and why they were founded, the triumphs and tribulations on the way to present success and the prospects for years to come.
Liz Sagues is a journalist whose enthusiasm for wine has brought her acclaim at international level: she has twice been named Louis Roederer Regional Wine Writer of the year for her columns in the Ham & High series of newspapers in London. Living at the foot of the South Downs, she is ideally placed, by both experience and location, to tell the story of these English wine producers.
