“ The French plant vines here because they know this is the place to be ” Wine News

The Decanter World Wine Awards are the largest wine competition in the world and, according to its co-chair, Master of Wine Sarah Jane Evans, the 2020 triumph of English wines is the result of climate change.

“We had an incredible spring, a really lovely summer, and despite the rain, the weather was wonderful. But it’s not a one-off event, ”says Evans in this week’s edition of Biting Talk, hosted by William Sitwell. “It’s climate change [and] the weather is getting better and better. It really is a great time; on the last day we were faced with a wonderful range of English and Welsh wines and of the last 50 two of them were English. “

“It’s an extraordinary achievement,” she continues. “And yes, it is [because of] the weather, but it is also the winegrowers who know how to make wine properly. The French are planting vineyards in England because they know this is the place to be. “
