Crafting exceptional English wines | Jonathan White, Gusbourne

For many, the rise in prominence of English wines is a relatively recent thing as big international names look to invest in the UK market. It is fair to say that many of the UK’s most well-known producers have been at it for decades and it is not before time that those leading the charge are being recognised globally for the really excellent wines that they are producing. As we move towards the better weather, it felt like the perfect time to sit down with Gusbourne’s CEO, Jonathan White, to hear more about the exciting world of English wines.
