English wine and organic mince pies on Waitrose shoppers' Christmas lists

Waitrose English wine

Waitrose says its top Christmas pick this year is organic mince pies, while sales of English sparkling wine have increased by 188 per cent compared to this time last year.

The supermarket says its selection of English wines is seeing growth of 80 per cent in total. Indeed, Waitrose shoppers seem pretty keen on local booze as six out of ten bottles of English wine are bought there.
