English Wine Week is fast approaching, it runs from Saturday 25th May to Sunday 2nd June! From day one we have been huge supporters and sellers of English Wine here at The Beer Seller and now the Hidden Seller. We will be highlighting just what England has to offer when it comes to wine.
Wine produced in England isn’t new, we have been doing it for 100s of years but in last 10 years it has started to take off hugely. English wine has grown a staggering 160% in 10 years. Not only that but English sparkling wines have won 15 international trophies in global competitions. There are currently over 500 vineyards in the UK with over 100 open to the public. Not only are more vines being planted but english wine is being exported to over 40 countries with the USA being the primary export. Last year was potential England’s best year and vintage with an astonishing 15.6 million bottles being produced, a huge rise on 2017 when only 5.9 million were produced.
At The Beer Seller, our wine selection is predominantly English based with great names such as Chapel Down and Bolney available by the glass. At The Hidden Seller, our recently opened shop, we have over 30 different English wines in stock, which showcase the variety that is on our doorstep. We highly recommend taking a look at the diverse range on offer and even attending one of our English Wine and Cheese evenings where you will have the opportunity to taste 5 different wines and cheeses.

From the 25th May to 2nd June The Hidden Seller will be offering 10% off all wines! We will also being doing 9 days of english wine were will showcase wines - so make sure you keep a look out on facebook and instagram.
