Our Wines

The Grapes for all our wines have been tended and picked by hand and the still wines made and bottled entirely on the estate with minimum intervention.  *** Four of our 2010 wines won silver medals in the English and Welsh Wine of the Year Competition 2011***.

All of the wines make a good aperitif and are excellent with a range of food. In particular they partner rich and spicy foods well. Try them with smoked salmon, fish and chicken dishes, oriental food, leek tart and cold, smoked meats.  

Did you know that for every bottle of still wine sold, £2.00 goes to the exchequer! ?

The UK Chief Medical Officers recommend that adults do not exceed 3-4 Units a day (men) and 2-3 Units a day (women).

 

  Rosé Halcyon Days 2012

 

All our efforts from 2012 have been concentrated into 900 bottles of a unique sparkling wine. The lovely pale-crimson base for this wine was made by Richard in Frilford Heath, and tasted very promising indeed. It was then transported to the Brewing Research Institute for the secondary fermentation in bottle.  Now, after 9 months on the lees (ie dead yeasts), the 2012 Halcyon Days is dry, boasts soft cherry and rhubarb flavours, and a light brioche finish that comes from using the méthode champenoise.  Will improve with keeping.

  Coté Bothy 2011 - sold out

Only 800 bottles of this barrel-aged red wine were produced from our 2011 vintage. The exceptionally long, dry and sunny autumn of 2011 resulted in the perfect ripening of our cold-climate reds. This deep crimson wine is packed with brambly, dark chocolate and pear flavours, supported by soft tannins and fruity spice. Lower alcohol than new world reds, but with all the fruit and length.
