While the production of wine in Britain goes back as far the Romans, it’s only in recent years that British wines have returned to the global stage, with a number of sparkling English wines giving the top French Champagne houses a run for their money. It is down this route that Welsh vineyard Ancre Hill Estate is also travelling. This biodynamic winery, situated on the south facing slopes of the Wye Valley, on the outskirts of Monmouth, started planting vines in April 2006 and continued in April 2007 and is fast bringing Welsh wine to a wider audience.
