You know that YAS KWEEN feeling when you’re sipping on a large glass of wine beside a slew of lit candles from your extra foamy bubble bath? Well, you can now take that feeling a bit more literally and drink wine made by the Queen of England herself. That’s right, Her Majesty has officially released a sparkling wine produced from grapes grown on her Windsor Great Park Estate. As the Telegraph reports, 16,700 vines of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier were planted over seven acres in 2011. The English Sparkling wine industry has undergone a serious boom, responsible for nearly 100 million pounds of revenue annually. According to the Telegraph, the Queen’s special cuvée is reported to have spent two years aging in cellar and was bottled at 12 percent alcohol, selling out almost immediately after being released. No need to worry, though, as a second round of royal sparkling is set to make its debut on the market later this year, at a mere cost of 35 pounds per bottle. As if sipping sparkles doesn’t make us feel like royalty already, we can’t wait to get our hands on a bottle fit for the queens that we are.
