Bolney’s story began in 1972 when owners and founders, Janet and Rodney Pratt planted three acres of vines to create what was then only the sixth commercial vineyard in England. Sam Linter, Rodney and Janet’s daughter, took over the reins in the mid-1990s. Under Sam’s leadership, Winemakers Liz Morgan and Alex Rabagliati combine their knowledge and expertise to create award-winning wine. All are graduates of the esteemed Plumpton College in East Sussex, England.
The Estate specialises in producing premium red, white, rose and sparkling English wines that have won numerous awards, and gained lots of fans, all over the world.
In 2012, Bolney Wine Estate won UK Wine Producer of the Year in the International Wine and Spirit Competition. Since, we have been presented the accolade of Winery of the Year 2017 at the UK Wine Awards.
The estate has continued to invest in specialist machinery including, a 60 hectolitre press, a new disgorging line and 8 new wine tanks delivered in advance of the 2017 harvest and we continue to grow. In 2018 we started construction of a new winery at Bolney, which will allow us to triple our production with a capacity to produce 500,000 bottles of wine. This project will allow the business to continue with our exciting growth plans. The new winery was part funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development via a grant from Coast to Capital and DEFRA, for which we are extremely grateful.
