Great Organic Sussex Wine offer for English Tourism Week
Celebrating English Tourism Week March 25th - April 2nd with a great Sussex welcome offering a selection of Organic Sussex Wines.
The days of dismissing English wines are, happily, long behind us and all that remains is to convert all our winemakers to organic practices. It's something that Will Davenport has taken to like a duck to water and his vibrant, super-fresh, citrus white is a joy to drink, alongside his remarkable sparkling and new to our list this well rounded Pinot Noir red.

The vineyard at Oxney Organic Estate is located at the extreme east side of East Sussex, in Beckley, six miles north of Rye. The vineyard is part of the founders’ - Kristin Syltevik and Paul Dobson - vision of modern farming that’s environmentally sound, natural and sustainable. The estate is organic and certified by the Soil Association. This is a first for us... their Beccanleah is a wonderful dry and subtle English regional white wine with a creamy texture. Tasting of English orchard fruits with a crisp toasty finish.

Sedlescombe set the bar high with their ‘First Release’ – the first certified biodynamic English wine. It's beautifully versatile, slightly off-dry but with a wonderful freshness. Now there is an equally vibrant Red addition made from the Regent vine offering a surpirising vibrant ruby red colour and delicious red berry fruit.
