In 2004, when the first vines were planted at Gusbourne Estate, they had a clear vision and a single goal: to create English Sparkling Wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe. They’ve had their sights set on perfection ever since.
Focusing on just the classic grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, they believe that the only way to ensure the quality of our grapes is to grow them ourselves. That’s why the grapes used in our winemaking are sourced solely from Gusbourne vineyards in Appledore, Kent and next door to the Goodwood Estate in West Sussex.
They have an uncompromising quest for quality and a fastidious approach to detail that is aligned with their vision to create the finest wines they possibly can. They choose to plant predominantly Burgundianclones. This means that they produce lower yields, but the resultant fruit is riper and has significantly more flavour, making their grapes ideal for the production of fine sparkling and still wines.
Their wines are always vintage, unique to each growing season and an authentic reflection of a time and place.
