A Sparkling Dorset New Year

Sparkling Dorset

A number of vineyards and wineries have developed across the Dorset countryside in recent years, as the chalky soil is the same as in the Champagne region of France!

Here is our selection of sparkling Dorset wine producers, who can help you to celebrate the end of 2018 and the beginning of 2019 in true Dorset fashion…
