    They make this down the road from me but I'm not convinced it has much more than novelty value.

    Not really a fan of whites but prefer the bone dry French or UK ones. Chapel Down is the vineyard of choice for the missus, and the fizzy is better than all but the most expensive champers.

    A wine aficionado mate says there are some great ones, but I have never tried them. I think he might have said they keep the good stuff for themselves in Germany

    They do. I live in the middle of 4 major wine regions and most of the good stuff stays either local or withing Germany and only a very small percentage gets out whereupon it is marked up...
    Brexit is having a wee in the middle of the room at a house party because nobody is talking to you, and then complaining about the smell.

    I've actually had good German wines in the UK a few times. Unfortunately, once it's realised they are good the price goes up a lot or they disappear....
