Here's something to celebrate and with a glass of something fizzy too, as sparkling wine from Sussex is now in the same league as more well-known wines from France, Italy and Spain, after being granted protected regional status by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.

So in the years to come we'll be raising a glass of Sussex as a toast, as I found out when I visited winemaker Jonathan Médard at the Rathfinny Wine Estate in Alfriston.
