More than 200 people have bought tickets for the Wine Pantry’s English Wine and British Food celebration at Jubilee Market, Borough, London as organisers are calling out for more English producers to become involved.
“We desperately want to show that England has more than just fish and chips and celebrate our little island’s offerings,” says Wine Pantry proprietor Julia Stafford.
Co-inciding with the shop’s first anniversary, Stafford has hired “the whole of the Jubilee Market to have an English Wine and British Food celebration. The area will be heaving with people coming to watch the Flotilla between 2pm and 6pm with limited placed to eat and drink other than the rammed pubs,” she says. “The food is ready, music planned and we’re negotiating how to televise the event with the BBC having expressed an interest in filming it.”
For £10 a ticket guests will receive a Jubilee commemorative wine glass, tokens towards English wine samples and a party to remember.
The Wine Pantry is also running a competition for a bottle of what has been voted the world’s best sparkling rosé two years in a row, Camel Valley Pinot Rosé 2009. for signing up to the shop’s newsletter and answering a simple question on firstname.lastname@example.org.
Who was the first to document the secondary fermentation used in sparkling wine and we will draw the winning name and save for you to collect from the shop. Hint: it wasn’t Dom Perignon!
