Wessex Wins in UK Wine Awards

The inaugural UK Wine Awards results have just been published and we are delighted to see that Wessex member Coates and Seely from Hampshire won Supreme Champion with their La Perfide Blanc de Blancs 2009.  The wine also won best Sparking Wine and Best Blanc de Blancs and not to rest on their laurels they also won Best Rosé wine with their Coates and Seely Rosé 2009.  The region itself was not to be outdone with other vineyards winning 2 golds, 5 silvers and at least 4 bronze medals.  Wessex continues to demonstrate that the cradle of the English Wine industry can still deliver the very best in English Wine, worth raising a glass to celebrate this summer for sure!
