HERE’S TO A
SPARKLING SUMMER

Step up and charge your glass, because English Wine Week has arrived and we’ve got just the tipple to tempt you

English wine is not only being recognised internationally for its quality – did you know our soil and climate are similar to the Champagne region? – it’s also slowly but surely carving out a permanent space in British wine-lovers’ hearts with crisp whites, surprising young reds and bottles of fruity fizz like this Ridgeview Marksman. Named in memory of a plane that M&S sponsored during World War II and made exclusively for us, it’s crafted by the family-run Ridgeview Wine Estate in East Sussex. With its chardonnay grapes and distinctively oaky character, it’s fresh, full of sunshine and made for toasting English Wine Week (27 May–4 June).
The sip of summer, this way

“This ENGLISH sparkling
wine was made to be savoured
in the sunshine”
