Discover Sussex's Sparkling Treasures

We at Bolney Wine Estate have carved out a reputation for producing top-tier sparkling wines, utilising traditional techniques that showcase the unique terroir of Sussex. Our prestigious Estate is celebrated for its rich heritage and innovative approach, making it a must-visit for anyone passionate about authentic English sparkling wines.

Our Award-Winning Sparkling English Wines

English sparkling wine, particularly from Bolney Wine Estate, stands out due to its exceptional quality driven by the unique climate and soil conditions of Sussex. These factors, akin to those of the Champagne region in France, allow for the cultivation of classic grape varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier, which are integral to traditional sparkling wine production.

 

We use the traditional method to produce our sparkling wines. This includes secondary fermentation in the bottle and extended lees ageing to enhance complexity and flavour. This meticulous process results in fine sparkling wines that are rich in texture and characterised by vibrant acidity and fine bubbles.
