English Sparkling Wine

Our sparkling wines, like the Classic Cuvée and Blanc de Blancs, exemplify the traditional method, ageing on lees to enhance depth and complexity. The Classic Cuvée, awarded Gold at the Glass of Bubbly 2020 and Silver at the Champagne and Sparkling Wine World Championships 2020, is celebrated for its elegant blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. The Blanc de Blancs stands out with its sophisticated texture and creamy finish and secured multiple awards including Gold at TEXSOM Wine Awards 2020.

Still English White Wine

Our Pinot Gris and Lychgate Bacchus represent the pinnacle of English still white wines. The Pinot Gris offers a refreshing medium body with notes of pear, apricot, and a hint of orange blossom, earning Silver at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2020.

Our Lychgate Rosé and Bolney Bubbly Rosé are excellent examples of English rosé with vibrant and expressive profiles. Lychgate Rosé, bursting with summer fruits and a sherbet-like zing, received a Silver at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2022.
