Blazing sunshine and rows of grapevines are now a growing part of the English countryside, leading to a rise in locally produced sparkling wine boosted this year by a bumper harvest. At the Chapel Down winery in Kent, about 40 miles southeast of London, dozens of fruit-pickers are busy loading grapes into bins for the harvest, which is about 60 percent bigger than last year's.While Britain's 2018 summer was the joint-hottest on record adding to concerns about global warming the heat has been a boon for England's wine industry, which accounts for about 2 percent of all the wine bought in Britain.In the longer-term, the prospects for England's wine industry may well hinge on Britain's ability to strike trade deals with countries outside the European Union.Underlining the challenge, WineGB estimates 3 million grapevines have been planted over the last three years.
