Liz Sagues - wine writer - Episode 10

Today my guest is wine writer Liz Sagues, whose latest book, Sussex by the Glass focuses on  two of the county's pioneering wine estates, Ridgeview and Bolney.The book takes the reader through a journey of English wine, from the early formative years right through to the emergence of powerhouse producers like Nyetimber, before focusing on the Ridgeview and Bolney stories.Both of these family-run vineyards have recently celebrated milestones – Ridgeview marked its 25th anniversary last year and Bolney is 50 this year – are are also led by female winemakers, Sam Linter and Tamara Roberts.As well as talking about Liz's latest work, we discuss her 2018 title, A Celebration of English Wine,  which at the time was the first book in a decade for consumers on the subject, and her first taste (and what she thought) of English wine. Sussex by the Glass is available online from Ridgeview (£14 including delivery) and Bolney (£12 + P&P)or by visiting either of the estates.   Thank you for listening to today's episode of The English Wine Diaries.
