Kent Champagne!

http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/3629187.stm

Quote:
Champagne houses are considering exporting the production to the Garden of England.

Climate change and the chalk geology of hills in Kent and Sussex has led to three French firms thinking about making the move.

The champagne houses are talking to Kent-based English Wines Group about the possibilities in the county.

But they wouldn't be allowed to call it champagne.

That'd be interesting. If they took the grapes to Champagne and made the actual wine there would they be able to?

It's actually not a bad read.

Anyway, who cares whether it's called Champagne or not?

Summary: as above, plus...

It's great, people almost come to blows over whether Feta cheese from Denmark should be banned for calling itself Feta cheese, we discover that some in France don't know wine, and we learn that Parma Ham must be Canadian -- at least in Canada.

Sorry, what I meant was who cares when buying a bottle of sparkling wine whether it says "Champagne" on it or not. People tend to go for brands or specific wines. Someone's favourite sparkling wine will be a specific brand/wine not just generally all those made in France.

Although the likelyhood will be that most peoples favourite will be one of the big name French ones because they have a big name for a reason.

The best non-French one I've tried was in New Zealand, but that was made by French winemakers, in french barrels to the traditional French Method.

Wow... looking that up it's only £12 a bottle here.

Here was one response to that:

Or should we let the market decide?

Oh, and that thread is from way back when Dyl was still posting there.

He's very firmly in the "cares" camp.

I don't think that stuff made outside Champagne should be allowed to be called Champagne, but I don't care whether a bottle of sparkling wine has that word on the bottle or not, just whether the wine inside the bottle tastes good or not.

So there won't be much difference with french champagne then. I prefer cava anyway.

Kent is referred to as 'the garden of England'. Although I live in London this used to be Kent (all this was once fields ) I live a couple of miles from 'Hardcore Kent'
