Great result for our local producers:
England’s winemakers scooped 11 Gold, 50 Silver and 60 Bronze medals in the International Wine Challenge (IWC), placing it ninth in the medals table. Ten of England’s 11 Gold medals were awarded to sparkling wines.
Sussex-based producers won seven of the 11 Golds. Nyetimber won three Gold medals, two Silvers and a Bronze, with its Classic Cuvee 2009 receiving the English Sparkling Trophy, considered the highest accolade for sparkling wine in the UK.
Sussex-based producers also had two of the three top-scoring wines with both Nyetimber Classic Cuvee 2009 and Ridgeview Blanc de Blancs 2014 scoring 96/100. The Ridgeview wine also won the English Blanc de Blancs Trophy.
