Our Sussex wine selection this Christmas

We’ve always championed English wine, showcasing some of the best bottles on our Sussex wine list. We asked Alex to share his top picks to tuck into over the festive period, so here’s an insight into what he’ll be stocking up with over the next few weeks.

1. Perfect for a party – Ridgeview Merret Bloomsbury Sparkling Brut

If you’re hosting a Christmas party, there’s nothing better than a glass of Ridgeview sparkling to host your nearest and dearest. One of the best English sparkling wines, we’re chuffed to have them up the road in Ditchling.

2. An Award-winning Sussex wine to enjoy this Christmas

What better way to kick of the celebrations on Christmas day, than with a glass of award-winning Nytetimber Classic Cuvee Sparkling Brut. Lovely gentle bubbles make it the perfect English fizz to toast the day in.

3. Albourne for the perfect pairing

Alex is a fan of Albourne Estate Cellar Selection 2015, If you’re sticking with the traditional turkey this Christmas, a bottle of this Albourne will work perfectly.

4. Distinctive dessert

Alex will most likely be finishing off his Christmas Dinner with a glass of Sedlescombe Dessert wine. Because, why not?

5. Proper ‘Port’

Blackdown Elderberry Port is a firm favourite of ours at Isaac At. It’s the perfect after-dinner drink for the big day. It tastes even better sat in front of a fire, with a cheese board close by…

6. Boxing Day Red

To finish the festive celebrations off nicely, if you’re not going anywhere on Boxing Day, Alex recommends trying Sedlescombe Regent-Rondo 2015!
