Chapel Down English Roe NV

Wines from the heart of the Garden of England

This week, we have begun harvesting our Pinot Noir fruit. This classic Champagne variety is used in many of our sparkling wines and is often considered to be one of the most charismatic grape varieties. It is also the dominant grape variety in most of our rosé wines, thanks to its delicate colour and elegant flavour profile. Our Chapel Down Sparking English Rose NV is a superb example of this.

Common Wine Myths Debunked!

This isn’t necessarily true! Over time, winemaking techniques have improved to allow wines to be enjoyed younger and because fewer of us have cellars, the maturation process has become difficult as well as unnecessary for many of us.
