Our Somms’ Summer Picks

To celebrate English Wine Week (15th June – 23rd June 2024), our Wine Teams across THE PIGs share a peek at the bottles they really love from our own soil – and are perfect to enjoy this sunny season!

Albury Estate Prestige Cuvee 2018

Jack, Head Sommelier, THE PIG-in the South Downs

“This complex, sparkling wine is straight from the heart of the Surrey Hills. While it’s delicious for this time of year, the palate is weighty and broad, making it perfect for any season. On a hot summer's day, the keynote of strawberry tart really hits the spot, with an eclectic array of apple strudel and white peach to go with it.”

Langham Pinot Meunier Sparkling 2018

Nate, Bar Supervisor, THE PIG-near Bath

“From the grassy hills of Dorset comes this charming English wine, producing a 100% Pinot Meunier sparkling which is packed full of green apple and fresh grapefruit. This wine cuts through its slightly oxidative nature with subtle hints of honey and toffee. It’s a full-bodied English treat!” 

Gusbourne Blanc des Blancs 2017

Brad, Assistant Head Sommelier, THE PIG-at Bridge Place

“The warmer, sunnier days are the perfect time to enjoy a good glass of Gusbourne Blancs des Blancs Sparkling 2017. It’s fresh, vibrant, and full of crisp citrus and oyster shell – just perfect to enjoy with friends and family on a sunny summer evening.”

 Kits Coty 'Coeur de Cuvee' Blanc de Blanc 2016

Tom, Assistant Head Sommelier, THE PIG-at Combe

“This sparkling wine is from the heart of the first press and the very best chardonnay grapes. It shows purity and finesse rich in stone fruits such as peach and has a delicious buttery, toasty finish. This bottle is a fantastic celebration of how far English sparkling has come!”

Sugrue Ex Machina

Luke, Sommelier, THE PIG-in the South Downs

“There's no better way to start the summer than with sparkling rosé. This beautiful English wine is from Dermot and Ana Sugrue – it’s filled with some lovely strawberry notes and gives subtle floral aromas. Easy drinking, it’s just perfect for this time of the year.”

Squerryes Exclusive Vintage Reserve 2020

James, Head Sommelier, THE PIG-at Bridge Place

“Grown on the Kentish North Downs, for us this is the ultimate ‘Classic Cuvée’! With a blend of 45% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 25% Pinot Meunier, this sparkling is intense and ripe, with notes of apple, pear, and citrus fruit complimented by well-balanced biscuit and brioche characters. It’s a true taste of Kent!”

 Langham Culver Classic Cuvée

Aykea Spearing, Sommelier, THE PIG-near Bath

“Langham’s wines are made in a unique way for English sparkling – the freshly pressed juice is exposed to oxygen to encourage development of dried fruit and nutty flavours, adding depth and complexity to the wine. It’s packed with refreshing acidity and crisp red apple notes and it really stands out to us as something unique and special in the English wine market”.
