Demand for English wine has rocketed by a fifth this year, suggesting we have finally developed a taste for home-grown grapes.

The increase has been attributed to wine enthusiasts visiting vineyards during Covid staycations when foreign travel was restricted.

Majestic Wine said shoppers developed more adventurous tastes during the pandemic.

Majestic said: ‘We’ve seen a real growth of interest in English wines, and anecdotally know a lot of our customers have visited the wineries we stock. 

‘The quality of the wine has come on leaps and bounds.’

Favourite English grape varieties include chardonnay, pinot noir and Bacchus – England’s answer to New Zealand sauvignon blanc.
