English Truffles and English Sparkling Wine

ENGLAND is set become the truffle capital of the world within 30 years, scientists have predicted, as they work to develop a new genetically enhanced variety, which grows twice as fast.
A shift in climate means truffle farmers in the Mediterranean are facing exceptionally dry weather, creating a shortage of the fungus. Mediterranean black truffles are mostly found in northern Spain, southern France and northern Italy where they thrive in warm, dry conditions.
Also, English sparkling wine from Kent and Sussex has Champagne growers worried especially by the quality and value of wines such as those from Chapeldown and Nyetimber which are sweeping up the International awards.
