Situated in the heartlands of English sparkling wine production and with domestic vineyard visits on the rise, the new store is expected to see record sales of homegrown fizz sold within its first weekend alone.
The area is already home to some of the leading names in English wine including Nytimber and Bolney, both of which will be stocked at the new Majestic store.
