Where once English wine might have been considered an optimistic hobby, the country is now home to more than 700 vineyards producing 15 million bottles of wine per year – and many of these wines are winning international awards.
To celebrate the joy of English wine, Corkk’s Master of Wine (one of only 400 in the world), Clive Barlow, curates a selection of the best wines England has to offer every month.
These wines are then made available in Corkk’s online shop every month or as part of handy subscription packs, which are available in various case sizes.
Clive became a Master of Wine in 1999 and is also chair for the prestigious International Wine Challenge, senior judge for the Decanter Magazine competition, and teaches at the London Wine Academy.
Together, he and the Corkk team aim to shine a light on small independent winemakers while highlighting the very best of English wine.
The wines he selects are from English wine estates ranging in size from just a few acres to some of the nation’s household names, but all wines are made with estate grown fruit.
Corkk subscriptions range from £48 for a monthly still wine selection to a sparkling selection every six months for £95, so there are options for all wine lovers.
Whatever your order, Corkk’s meticulously sourced selections are delivered with the Clive Barlow’s personal tasting notes about each wine, including what to expect from your bottle and the provenance of the wine itself.
Based near Canterbury in Kent, the Corkk wine shop is a wonderful opportunity to explore the ever-evolving world of English wine and our nation’s burgeoning vineyards.
Local Food Kent says
Since Local Food Britain's inception in 2012, we have supported English vineyards across the south east including Kent, Sussex and Surrey wine hubs. It's been incredible to see the level of support for our nation's wine makers grow and grow, and this has also coincided with English wines gathering an increasing number of international wine awards every year.
Corkk, the English wine box, is an absolutely fantastic way to discover the joy of English wine, whether you're trying it for the first time or looking to build a celebratory cellar of our nation's favourite wines and future classics. You will discover many wonderful hidden gems among their monthly wine subscriptions.
We promise that we will never, ever pass your details to anyone else or overwhelm you with emails – we send one a month, occasionally two (unless we have something really amazing that we think you will want to know about straightaway!).
And we will always make it really easy for you to unsubscribe – one click, straight from the email. We never want to lose our readers but we know how hugely irritating it is when the unsubscribe facility is made as difficult to use as possible..
