Here on World Radio Gardening, we were due to feature a wine expert. That is still our plan. Ken Crowther explains more.
Over the past 20 years things have changed dramatically in the production of English sparkling and still wines. Lisa Greenwood and her husband moved to Shoreham in Kent , where they have approximately 10 acres of vines which were mainly planted in 2004. She told Ken Crowther about the amount of work involved in running the business.
Based in the warmest area in England, the West Street Vineyard in Coggeshall is famous for its English grapes. The dry East Anglian climate is also an advantage, they grow as much as they possibly can, producing grapes for all sorts of vineyards across England, as Jane Mohan told Ken Crowther.
