Crowned ‘Supreme Champion’ at the The WineGB Awards 2021 confirming that this really is one of the country’s greatest wines.

Respected wine critic Neal Martin agrees calling it “One of the finest English sparkling wines that I have encountered.”

You wouldn’t employ someone without first checking their curriculum vitae. Do the same with your wine and you will find that Wiston Estate is the perfect candidate.

Irish winemaker Dermot Sugrue has worked at Nyetimber Château l’Eglise-Clinet and Château Leoville Barton not to mention stints in Champagne. The Independent describe him as “the man who put English sparkling wine on the map” Decanter says he “is playing a big part in shaping the UK sparkling wine industry”; and if you dig a little deeper you find he is involved with the highly respected wines from Jenkyn Place Digby Fine English Sugrue Pierre and many others. No need for a second interview fill that vacant position in your wine rack with a bottle of Wiston Estate Blanc de Blancs 2015.

This multi-award-winning English Sparkling Wine is a pure Chardonnay made with a traditional Coquard basket press (like those used in Champagne). The wine is fermented and aged in a combination of Burgundy barrels and stainless steel before receiving its second fermentation in bottle where it remains on the lees for at least four years. What emerges is a complex concoction of tangerine apricot jam honeydew melon lemon curd roasted nuts honeysuckle brioche bruised apple fudge Greek yoghurt richness and elegance.

The Goring family has owned Wiston Estate on the South Downs since 1743 but it was Pip Goring - inspired by the vineyards around Cape Town where she grew up – who pushed for planting a vineyard in 2006. There’s a magic in the wines that Dermot Sugrue produces; when combining that with the Gorings’ passion and heritage and Wiston Estate’s chalky soils (which are much like those of the Côte de Blancs in Champagne) you have a very serious wine on your hands.
