Only when the fruit is fully ripe do we gently hand harvest and process with care to maintain the freshness and varietal expression.
Fruit for sparkling wine is whole bunch pressed. The fruit destined for still wine is crushed or destemmed, depending upon the wine style required. The juice is clarified and then fermented in closed stainless steel tanks to maintain its freshness and aroma.
Barnsole’s situation delivers the perfect geology and climate to produce the high quality grapes that make our award winning English wines. We diligently nurture our vines throughout the growing season, listening carefully to what the vineyard tells us. Only when we have heard its whisper can we harness the goodness of each wondrous season.
We sell sparkling and still wines directly to the public from the winery door.
