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.
The Estate specialises in producing premium 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.
But don’t just take our word for it! Check out this segment on BBC’s Saturday Morning Kitchen all about the two wines we are stocking here.
We are excited to be stocking the Bacchus white and a Pinot Noir red.
Bacchus: This complex Bacchus marries classic elderflower and gooseberry with savoury notes of white pepper and citrus undertones. This rounded vintage is ideal for ageing.
Pinot Noir: An excellent example of a cool climate Pinot Noir, well balanced, it has soft tannins and juicy strawberry and red cherry on the palate. Leather, spice and chocolate complement fresh plums and a smooth and creamy finish.
Two excellent wines to try, savour and enjoy. Perfect for entertaining and dare we say it…..Christmas.
