You may be scratching your head thinking, what does Biodynamic wine actually mean?
The word 'Biodynamic' literally means life force,from its Greek roots 'bio' and 'dyn'
This is a completely organic wine, made in an energy management system, which some say allows the true expression of terroir.
Biodynamic wines are sometimes called hippy and odd due to the celestial energy and way in which the wines are made with the aid of cow horns, more on that later!!!Read More

So many fizzy beguiling bottles teased me, on this bright Monday morning at George Street in London.
What a great way to start the week I found myself thinking and smirking to myself.
The hypnotic buzz in the room was awash with animated chatter, slurping and spitting and audible gulps, as we all shared the same passion and confidence in our chosen subject....YES .....English Wine!

Vini Vici is launched and now the fun really begins! This is my first blog, so forgive me if it's short and sweet. I will bore the pants off you at regular intervals over the next few months as my wine odyssey develops. So many vineyards to visit this summer, 135 vineyards at last count in the English countryside. The winemakers are producing such high quality wines now that our sparkling award winners are beating the French champagne and New Zealand favourites who had previously topped the charts. English wines are enjoying a renaissance and are being taken very seriously on the international stage.
English Wine Week starts 23rd May, make sure you order some bubbles from us to celebrate x
