The English wine industry, long the butt of dinner party jokes, is being revolutionised by a new generation of professionals who are replanting orchards and wheat fields with vines and winning prizes worldwide. The wine is so good that at least one champagne house has moved across the Channel from France to invest in an English vineyard and will soon be producing sparkling wines it hopes will rival the great marques of Reims and Epernay.
