Champagne may be the home to the original sparkling stuff, but one winery this side of the Channel is proving that our English grapes can be just as good. Worthing-based Fitz Sparkling Wine decided to turn what was a long-term dream into a reality, aiming to create a quality sparkling wine that would offer a different style to other English wines on the market.
Fitz take pride in their story, gladly calling themselves the “illegitimate child” of the sparkling wine industry. They believe in equality, and would rather enter into a field with tough French competition, whilst creating a product of the highest quality and having fun simultaneously. As they put so aptly themselves: who wants to be a king when you can be a right royal bastard?
Stocked at the likes of Isaac At, the winery is going from strength to strength – and we’ve partnered up with them to give one of our lucky readers a chance to enjoy such luxury in the comfort of their own home.
