In 2004, when the first vines were planted at Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent, we had a clear vision and a single goal: to create English Sparkling Wine that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe. An uncompromising quest for perfection and a fastidious approach to detail has remained at the heart of everything we have done since. We ensure only the best grapes are used in our winemaking by growing and hand-picking them ourselves. We then present an authentic reflection of a time and place in each of our bottles, by producing exclusively vintage wines that are unique to each growing season.
