Fruit from the Sussex vineyard used to make exclusive wine for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee

Festive bottles of English sparkling wine have been made from fruit from Sussex vineyards to commemorate the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee.

The special edition bottles of wine have been released by the Royal Collection Trust (a department of the Royal Household) and are made from a blend of hand-picked fruit from vineyards in Sussex and Kent.

The trust said the vintage sparkling wine is a classic blend of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier.
