Conrad Ford, founder of Funding Options, said: "English wine is going from strength to strength.

"The English wine industry is not only gaining traction amongst domestic consumers, but is now being ranked with wines from traditional white wine-producing countries such as France and Germany."

In May 2017, a Norfolk wine was named the best white wine in the world at the Decanter World Wine Awards, the Winbirri Vineyards’ Bacchus wine beat 17,200 other entries to win the Platinum Best in Show.

Miles Beale, Chief Executive of the Wine and Spirit Trade Association, said: “It comes as no surprise to us that an English Bacchus wine has won a major international award. Up until now English Sparkling Wine has been grabbing most of the headlines for its outstanding quality.

"It was only a matter of time before an English still wine showed the world it can also compete with the best.

"The UK climate is ideal for growing the Bacchus grape which is why it has become the favoured grape grown in the majority of UK vineyards making still white wine.

"We believe Bacchus has the potential to do for English wine production what Sauvignon Blanc did for New Zealand.”
