A Sparkling Dorset New Year

Sparkling Dorset

New Year special offerAdd a bit of fizz and celebrate a real “Sparkling Dorset New Year” with some delicious English sparkling wine. Dorset is blessed with some fantastic vineyards which provide us with a splendid selection of sparkling wines.

Recent years have seen a number of vineyards and wineries develop across the Dorset countryside. The chalky soil here is the same as is found in the Champagne region of France!

Here is our selection of sparkling Dorset wine producers, who can help you to celebrate the end of 2017 and the beginning of 2018 in true Dorset fashion…
