The English Wine Kiosk has been created out of both love and necessity. It’s been a real treat to watch the English wine scene grow over the past few years – it’s huge, with a genuinely incredibly array of styles now on offer. England may be a little rock, but the variety available here is truly astounding and as far as we can see, it’s not being celebrated enough.
That’s where we come in. We don’t want to be the biggest, we want to be the best. We’re starting small, carefully curating vintners and vintages under one house to support the best of the best working within the English wine trade. We’re following the Gin Kiosk method, taking our time to seek out high quality wines that offer something a little different, with great branding, interesting backstories and – most importantly – brilliant people behind them.
We’re beginning with Sparkling Wine, before moving onto White, Rose and, eventually, a tiny handful of Red. With the brilliant Cherry Constable on board, English Wine Kiosk is going to serve as a minor publication, too, with opinion pieces about the industry as well as articles about terroir, production, trends and makers featuring in the blog.
