Bolney and Kew join forces to launch English sparkling range

20 April, 2017

The Bolney Wine Estate and The Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew have joined forces to launch a new collection of  “quintessentially English” sparkling wines for spring.

The premium wine collection includes a sparkling white and a sparkling rose; the Bolney Kew sparkling white is described as having “floral, zesty citrus fruit, honeysuckle and elderflower notes”, while the rose is “a seriously sophisticated wine” with notes of raspberry and strawberry.

English flora and fauna is celebrated in the presentation of The Bolney Kew Sparkling collection, featuring dragonflies, ladybirds and wild flowers often seen at the vineyard.

Sam Linter, head winemaker at Bolney Wine Estate, said: “We have been producing wine since the 1970s and have continued to grow and develop over this time. We are so proud to add the Bolney Kew Sparkling collection to our offerings and widen the awareness of English horticulture and viticulture through our partnership.”

Quincy Leon, head of licensing and development and the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, says: “English winemaking is an industry we are pleased to support, and the Bolney Wine Estate is an excellent example of sustainable wine production. Their wines are of the highest quality and Sam and her team share our thirst for promoting the importance of UK biodiversity, so we are proud to partner with them to produce this delightful range of sparkling wines.”
