Screaming Eagle Winery and Vineyards is a California wine estate producing limited amounts of varietal wine. Due to the small quantities produced and high prices commanded, their wines are considered cult wines.

The winery is located in Oakville, California, north of the town of Napa in the Napa Valley.

But while the couple are treating themselves for festive season, some users online were not so impressed with the Christmas excess.

One wrote: "£2.500 for a bottle of wine @victoriabeckham shameful indulgence with so much poverty and homelessness in the world. And posting a photo of it is so wrong."

According to the Evening Standard, back in 2000 a six-litre bottles of Screaming Eagle sold for £500,000 at a charity auction.

California is famous for its wonderful wine and vineyards, but recent research shows that British vineyards have reached a record high thanks to a niche drinks demand.

According to the Telegraph, the number of wine producers in the UK hit 397 in 2016, up 13 per cent from 352 in 2015.

So what's fuelling the rise? The group said it's the same demand for 'boutique' drinks like craft ales that's also seen us turn away from International brands in favour of homegrown wine.

The current drinks trend is for local wine, with many of us swapping traditional favourites from France and New World wines, like New Zealand, for English produce.
