Leading wine writer Jonathan Ray talks about his latest book on 100 of the world’s greatest champagnes and sparkling wines and offers some tastings.
Sales of sparkling wine have risen 80% in the UK in the last five years, and some of the world’s leading sparkling wines are now produced in this country. Ray talks about the stories behind the wines and producers, looks at the new wave of English producers of sparkling wines and offers some thoughts about how to drink a sparkling wine.
Ray is drinks editor of the Spectator and a former wine editor of the Daily Telegraph. His books have sold more than 300,000 copies and include How to Buy Wine, Everything you need to know about Wine and Red & White Wine: How to choose, taste and enjoy it.
