Our top picks for English red wine this Autumn

Red wine production in England has gained increasing recognition and popularity in recent years, thanks to favourable climate changes, improved viticultural practices, and a growing reputation for quality.

English red’s are known for their lighter, more delicate style when compared to some of the richer, full-bodied red wines from warmer regions. A style which is gaining recognition on the international stage, winning awards and accolades for their quality.

Usually made using Pinot Noir, known for producing elegant and complex red wines, other varietals to look out for are Dornfelder, Rondo, and Regent. New varietals such as Divico are seeing fuller bodied English red wines come to market too, making it an exciting time for red wine in England!
