English Sparkling Wine

English sparkling wine is increasing in popularity among many enthusiasts. Warmer temperatures and chalkier soil have contributed to helping the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes mature into bouquets that burst with flavour. Thirst-quenchingly fruity with subtle, nutty overtones, whether you plump for sparkling white or if Rose is more your tipple, rest assured you won’t be disappointed! Perfect paired with smoked fish and also just as refreshing to drink on its own, don’t be surprised to see more of it on wine menus across Europe. Well worth trying if you are looking for an interesting alternative to some of the more mainstream brands of sparkling wine. It is certainly a nice surprise if you are hosting or attending a dinner or garden party.

Charles and Ruth Simpson have been making award-winning wines in the South of France since 2002. In 2012, attracted by the quality of the terroir and the opportunity to become part of one of the most dynamic wine producing regions in the world, they brought their expertise back to the UK, establishing Simpsons Wine Estate. Aspiring to produce the finest quality English wine, they planted 30 hectares of vineyards on the iconic chalk terroir of the North Downs and built a state-of-the-art gravity fed winery. In 2016, the Simpsons saw their first harvest. With a strong focus on provenance, they produce a highly-acclaimed range of exclusively estate-grown still and sparkling wines, including the Chalklands Classic Cuvée 2016, which won a gold medal in the 2019 Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships.

Sugrue South Downs is the personal project of celebrated English sparkling winemaker Dermot Sugrue. Sugrue has been the winemaker behind many of England's best sparkling wines for more than 10 years. Previously the winemaker at Nyetimber, he left in 2006 to establish the Wiston Estate Winery. The same year he also planted a one hectare vineyard in Storrington Priory which has been in full production since 2009, producing the highly acclaimed and multi award-winning sparkling wine ‘The Trouble with Dreams’. In 2017, the truly exceptional ‘The Trouble with Dreams 2013’, took the top spot in the Independent English Wine Awards; in 2019, the 2014 vintage was awarded Gold at IWC and more recently, Sugrue was given the highest rating of all English producers by Hugh Johnson in his Pocket Wine Book 2020.#

Nestled in the heart of England’s rolling South Downs in West Sussex, the Goring Family has owned the Wiston Estate since 1743. The Goring Brut, Rosé and Blanc de Blancs are made exclusively for us and take their name from the Goring family. This exquisite trio of English sparkling wines showcase the best of English terroir and offer exceptional value for money.
