A 'paradigm of modern rural Englishness' is how VICTORIA MOORE describes the Wiltshire village of Heytesbury, where she drank Wylye Valley wines - all of them whites and named after fishing flies: Watson's Fancy, Teal and Green, and Coachman. 'Never mind headlines about sparkling English wine beating Champagne in blind tastings,' she writes. 'Only when we see more of it drunk thoughtlessly will we begin to be a proper wine-producing country.' Nevertheless, in her Drinks Q&A, Moore recommends Chapel Down Extra Dry NV (11.99; Sainsbury's).
