“Their 2018 is a revelation…This is the taste of an English summer”
Corkage, Specialist Independent Wine Bar and Restaurant, Bath
“I really enjoyed the wine, the vine varieties are just the right ones for this area”
Jean-Marc Leitao, Award Winning Head Sommelier at the Royal Crescent Hotel and Restaurant, Bath
“A very interesting wine that’s particularly suited to summer. The German grape varieties made for a gentle Riesling- type texture. Softly fruited/gooseberryish and felt really well constructed … It also didn’t get acidic on later taste which I often find and don’t like in a young white wine. So – a very pleasant surprise.”
Andrew Nemes, Experienced Wine Enthusiast
“I love sharing this wine with guests. They are constantly amazed at how wonderful a local wine can be…”
Vicki Atkinson, Local Customer
