A website for French matters reports that a French champagne company has partnered with an English wine firm to grow champagne grape vines in the UK. The sparkling wine will be ready to drink by the year 2023. A vice president of the French company commented that the soil and climate of a region in the UK are idea for wine production. The sparkling wines cannot be called champagne as that term is reserved for wines grown in a certain section of France.
“The group purchased a 69-hectare site near Chilham, Kent, dubbed Domaine Evremond, because Pierre-Emmanuel Taittinger, the house’s vice president, was intrigued by the properties of the soil there.”
