AN INNOVATIVE English wine producer has won three awards in one of the most prestigious Far East competitions.

Exton Park, which is based on the chalk slopes of Hampshire’s South Downs, was the only English producer to win at the Cathay Pacific Hong Kong International Wine and Spirit Competition.

The two Exton Park wines entered - Blanc de Noirs and Pinot Meunier Rose - were both awarded silver medals. Its Blanc de Noirs NV also won Bronze in the Food Pairing class.

Winemaker Corinne Seely said: ‘It is a tremendous honour for us.’
