New fizz on the block - from Sussex company
A new sparkling wine has burst onto the English wine scene, made using the Charmat method and one of the first of its kind in the UK. Boco by House Coren is made in Sussex using top-quality English grapes. Just like the method used in making prosecco, the secondary fermentation that occurs under pressure create carbon dioxide and gives the wine its natural fizz. By fermenting in a tank rather than a bottle, the wine can be released earlier, so it's bursting with fruit-driven flavours. The majority of other homegrown bubbly uses the champagne method of doing the secondary fermentation in the bottle, so House Coren wanted to release a Charmat-method wine as it believes the style showcases the bright, fruity freshness found in English grapes and offers a more affordable alternative to the traditional method sparkling wines already out there.
William Coren, managing director of House Coren says, “Boco is all about living life to the fullest and raising a toast to adventure, which is exactly how this wine came about. We're delighted to debut our very first wine, which will be one of the many in our future portfolio.” William runs the vineyard in West Sussex with his family having planted 30,000 vines in May 2020.
Boco by House Coren is priced at £26 a bottle. Find out more about raising a toast at your wedding with locally produced bubbly by heading over to www.housecoren.co.uk
