British sparkling wines are growing in popularity and are recognized as some of the best in the world. The cool climate and calcareous soil in parts of southern England is similar to France's Champagne region, which has helped British winemakers produce sparkling wines using the traditional method.
Some popular grape varieties used in the production of sparkling wine in the UK are Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. The wines are characterized by their crisp acidity, delicate bubbles and flavors of green apple, citrus and sometimes hints of honey and brioche. Some notable British sparkling wine producers include Nyetimber, Ridgeview and Chapel Down. In general, sparkling wines from the UK offer a unique and refreshing alternative to champagne and other sparkling wines.
