“This is a versatile English red wine that gets along amicably with a wide variety of dishes. In particular, this Pinot will pair perfectly with rich, earthy flavours. Enjoy with slow-cooked duck ragu and pappardelle, or a risotto of wild mushrooms. It also compliments black truffle rather terrifically too!”
Prior to planting the land had been assessed as exceptional for vine growing. Climactic conditions now make East Kent, and the Canterbury area in particular, an optimum location for growing the champagne varieties. It is apt that the city of Canterbury is twinned with Rheims, the birth place of champagne.
Our sparkling wines are being made by the internationally renowned wine maker Emma Rice of Hattingley Valley. Our still wines are made by Defined Wine, a winery just south of Canterbury, which has established a national reputation. Our 2020 wines won 3 silver medals and a gold. Wines from our 2021 harvest have also now been released.
