Bacchus is the prized grape for still wine in England. Some say if you like Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc you will love this.

“I am thrilled to discover this Gateshead winery. Gateshead? Yes!!!
Urban wineries which buy grapes wherever they want but make the wine in cities are becoming big in Britain. Scented, lemon-streaked Bacchus from Leicestershire, made in Gateshead? England at its best!”
