What are your thoughts on the future of English sparkling wine?
I am super excited about the future of English sparkling wine. It is now becoming a well established industry and producers are getting more and more savvy about the best terroir and also how to handle dosage. I also think that as time goes on and more bottles are produced, there will be the opportunity to try more aged versions of English sparkling wine which would really allow the acidity and fruit of our wines to shine.
Which sparkling wines or regions do you think are most underrated?
Franciacorta. I absolutely adore the complexity, warm fruit and balanced acidity. It is also just stunning with food. I love to get friends to try it who normally find Champagne a bit too acidic.
What is your favourite sparkling wine food pairing?
Rosé Champagne with sushi … no brainer. My favourite cuisine matched with bubbles and my favourite colour. WIN!
Where’s the most memorable place you’ve enjoyed a Glass of Bubbly?
Atacama desert – horse riding with my family over Easter. We had basic camping gear, but my mum and I did ensure to pack a bottle of bubbles for Easter Day!
