In addition to the Pol Roger NV Brut Reserve Champagne featured at the Buckingham Palace Royal Wedding Receptions Friday, The Daily Mail reported English white wine from Chapel Down would also be served. Keeping up the theme of showcasing the best of Britain.
Chapel Down is the biggest winery of the UK’s 109 wineries and it produces over two million bottles a year. Located in Tenterden, Kent, they’ve been in business for 30 years. Like the Champagne choice, Chapel Down offers approachable price point so all can enjoy…their least expensive wine is the 2010 Flint Dry atÂ Â£8.50 per bottle and their most popular 2010 Bacchus is only Â£11 per bottle.Â Chapel Down also created a commemorative sparkling wine for the royal wedding called The Union for Â£25 per bottle, “a marriage of two of the greatest sparkling wine grapes. The Chardonnay provides elegance and finesse and the Pinot Noir adds depth and texture.”
For the last wine statement from the newly married Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, we saw them leave Buckingham Palace after the Queen’s Reception in Prince Charles’ convertible Aston Martin DB6, which runs on E85 bioethanol made from English wine waste.
Cheers to what was a fairytale day!
