High days and Holidays are definenatley going to be enjoyed around the nation as we celebrate the Queens Diamond Jubilee year, so as I knew you would be planning your festivities, I went in search of at least one local English wine that I know you will just adore, as High days will be underway at Highdown Vineyard near Ferring I would like to Present a wine that I have tasted on a good few occasions, and it never disappoints! Highdown Sparkling Rose´ made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes and made in true style by the method traditional. This sparkling Rose´ has a deep colour lots of fine mousse and persistent bubbles, it has aromas of redcurrants which is followed through on the palate bags of fruit and a long finish, this one will stand-up on its own as an aperitif or matches well on the menu with smoked salmon and definitely fit for our Queen, many congratulations mam!
£19.50 from Highdown Vineyard Shop, Littlehampton Road, Ferring, Worthing, West Sussex, BN12 6PG

Ok with some alfresco summer dinning in mind for our celebrations I was strangely drawn to a very aromatic white wine from Hennings and will pair with spicy flavours from the wok or BBQ so this Vin d’Alsace Called Gewürztraminer is just the ticket with its long length on the palate with a refreshing acidity. This is an off-dry wine but without any heaviness. Masses of Lychee which this wine is well noted for and tropical fruit flavours. Incredible Value for a wine of this quality.
£10.99 from Hennings wine Merchants, Aldsworth Parade, Goring, Worthing, BN12 4UP
