It’s my usual springtime blog post. Complaining about the weather and musing about planting.
To be fair we’ve had quite a good run weather wise. Mid-20’s Celcius at the end of April is fine by me, it’d just be nice if it stayed for longer than a couple of days. It’s just the wind this past weekend, can we please have less of that? The planting team looked like they’d been sandblasted!
We’re delighted and a little excited to announce that our new wines, a Blanc de Noirs from 2015 and our Rosé 2016 will be launched to the trade at an event at the fabulous Ritz hotel next Wednesday 1st May and will go on general sale through our UK agent Gonzalez Byass (UK) from 1st June.
These wines, together with our 2014 Blanc de Blancs, will be available by the glass throughout the Ritz hotel for the month
We’re trying to be as ‘sustainable’ as we can. We’ve adopted various practices across the estate to reduce our carbon footprint and reduce our impact on the natural environment, and Decanter magazine reported our ambition to be one of ‘the greenest’ wine producers in the world. But what do we mean by sustainable and what can you do to be environmentally sensitive when consuming wine?
