I see what you mean DFL. When I think of wine it is London I imagine, with it's rolling hectares of laden vines being looted and not the various award winning vineyards of the Sussex countryside.

The Breaky Bottom fizzy one is fabulous. It won loads of prizes, even when it was up against "proper" champagne.

Ridgeview, Nyetimber, Plumpton. All sprakling whites - the terroir here is very similar to that of champagne country - in fact a lot of suitable wine growing sites have apparently been bought by French vineyards. They've won awards you know.

Sifelle , fizzy from sheffield park. The mutts. Better than others already mentioned. Grown by mellow unassuming geezer.

Just posted a compliment to my dear friend Brixtie and it never appeared!! Here goes again. Brixtonbelle you are beyond amazing. I adore Nyetimber champs. Cheers, Peter. DFL, Brixtie has suggested some super wine growers, do try and report back to us all. Best, Peter

DFL. Give the Plumpton Agricultural College red a go. Surprisingly good.

I had some of that Plumpton red grog at the South of England show last year, and it was very nice.
When they first started making wine, they brought out a truly vile white that smelt of potato peelings and tasted like it might have been made from them. I've heard good things of their wine in recent years though, and was impressed with the red, so I think I'll give it another try.

What's the etiquette on drinking on trains?
I was most offended when a well dressed chap sat next to me the other day, opened a bottle of Chardonnay, pulled out a large wine glass and started to drink. Bit rude not to offer me a glass , don't you think ?

Brixtie, if it was me I would have insisted on you joining me! Used to adore the London to Brighton train many years agon, on a Friday night we would all be drinking and smoking on the journey home, great fun, the guard would wake the lightweights at Haywards Heath ha ha. Such fun, before the P.C Health and Safety brigade arrived to spoil our fun! Have a great weekend BB my friend. X
