Grape Expectations at Careys Manor

27th Apr 2018

With more than 500 vineyards across England and Wales, the UK has become a premier wine making country, with British wines winning a host of international awards. English Wine Week (May 26-June 2) invites us to ‘think, drink English’ and encourages us to visit and enjoy our thriving vineyards and wineries.

Careys Manor is a great supporter of the English wine industry, with our New Forest restaurant Cambium boasting one of the biggest collections of English wines in the UK.

Named ‘Hotel Restaurant of the Year South’ in the Food Awards England 2017, Cambium reflects our love affair with the location, and Head Chef Alistair Craig crafts beautiful dishes designed to showcase the area’s rich natural resources.

This Hampshire restaurant’s large collection of English wines features vineyards such as Camel Valley, Ridgeview and Chapel Down, all producing sparkling wines that are competing head on with Champagne and have won numerous international awards.

Head Sommelier Michael Driscoll is a big fan of English wines and says:

“We are seeing a surge in the popularity of the English wine we serve – and deservedly so. “We are delighted to be able to offer such a wonderful selection – especially during this annual celebration of our home-grown wines.”

Michael adds:

“Sparkling wine is the absolute strength of the English wine industry and our guests are always delighted by it. We feature five sparkling varieties – including Camel Valley’s Pinot Noir Brut Rosé, Ridgeview’s Bloomsbury and Chapel Down’s Three Graces – as well as a range of excellent still white, red and rosé wines.”
