The company said the news marks the first time a full shipping container of sparkling wine has been sent from England to an export destination. British Bottle Co announced its partnership with Vine Street in May.

The shipment includes 12 different wines from across the country, including Digby Fine English, Hush Heath Estate, Bolney Wine Estate and Camel Valley.

"As the reputation of English wine attracts ever more global attention, the US is a clear priority market for exports," said English Wine Producers marketing director Julia Trustram Eve. "These four producers are joining other English wineries now exporting to the US, which include Ridgeview, Chapel Down, Wiston, Gusbourne, Hambledon and Hattingley Valley."

The wines will be distributed to specialist retailers and restaurants, initially across nine states: New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Illinois, Washington DC, Massachusetts, Georgia, Montana and Maryland.
