Thieves steal £80,000 worth of wine from West Sussex producer

27 February, 2015

Thieves broke into the warehouse at Bolney Wines Estate in West Sussex and made off with around 5,000 bottles of wine.

The haul is valued at more than £80,000 and include 540 bottles of its award-winning Blanc de Blanc 2009 sparkling wine.

Other wines taken include Cuvée Rosé, Bolney Bubbly, Sirrius Rosé, Lychgate White and Linter’s Red.

Managing director and head winemaker Samantha Linter said: “We are understandably upset and frustrated by the loss of such a large amount of wine, as we work incredibly hard here at Bolney Wine Estate to produce top quality English wines. If anyone has information, could you please get in touch on 01444 881575 or phone the police on 101.”
