Supermarket sells Chatsworth grapes

Juicy grapes grown and hand-picked in England will be launched by a
supermarket for the first time this week.

A crop of golden yellow fruit harvested from vines on the Chatsworth estate
in Derbyshire will be introduced by Waitrose.

The grapes are the Muscat of Alexandria variety more usually seen in the
sunny climes of Spain, France, Chile and South Africa.

They were carefully cultivated on the Duke of Devonshire’s estate and their
arrival follows an English wine boom that saw vineyards here celebrate record
production, equal to four million bottles, last year.
