Fine Wines from Herefordshire

In general, the English wines are found to be more expensive and hence, they are usually considered as the special occasion wines.

This applies to the wines from Herefordshire as well with an exception of a white wine being produced by the Broadfield Court.

This wine is found to be more affordable and is more popular for its quality and therefore, it has got great reviews from the wine lovers globally. When it comes to the sparkling wine range, the Gusbourne range from Kent is more popular. This is a bit more expensive and is usually preferred for the wedding parties.

Do you think Herefordshire has got only this? While the grape varieties like Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the most popular grape varieties, the region is not devoid of local grape varieties. And, the styles that are produced here would differ as the winemakers in the UK tend to produce off-dry wines.
