Great new section Dane, thanks.

I was born in Yorkshire and grew up in Newcastle on Tyne. To my shock and amazement I just read this article in the Morning Advertiser (UK trade mag for pubs).

As a Pom I still can't get my head around this. It's a bit like reading about the Werribee Banana harvest or the King Island Paw Paw glut. Now tell me that this Globule Warming thing is a myth.

England has been growing wine grapes for quite a while. Sparkling grapes are picked much earlier when the sugar levels are lower and acid levels higher so cold climates are fine for these types of wine.
