The Wiston Estate Cuvee Rosé NV captures the essence of summer, with fragrant notes of rhubarb, raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant, wild roses, lemon zest and a touch of sherbet on the finish. Underlying all of this is a backbone of crushed oyster shells, which reflects the pure chalk terroir where the vines are grown. It is a superbly elegant English Sparkling wine with tiny, persistent bubbles and a refreshing acidity that makes one go back for more.

In 2006, the Goring family planted a south-facing 16-acre site with Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay vines. Fifteen years later, Wiston Estate’s winery is a dynamic focal point for its ever-growing community, and a beacon for those who share the Gorings’ stewardship values. Since the vineyards were first planted, the Estate’s team of growers and winemakers has doubled in size. Pip’s dream was never just about making wine; it was also about bringing people together.

About the vineyard
Wiston Estate has been in the hands of the Goring family since 1743 and is presided over today by Harry and Pip Goring. The estate is managed by their son Richard, and he and his wife Kirsty are now involved in the day to day running of the vineyard and winery. It was Pip’s long-held conviction that the estate held the potential to grow high quality grapes, thanks to the area’s similarities of soil and climate to Champagne. The 16-acre vineyard, planted in 2006, was the fruit of Pip’s dream and tenacity. Wiston Estate is a family venture, small in scale, impressive in aspiration and unrelenting in pursuit of quality. Under the aegis of award-winning winemaker Dermot Sugrue, the tight-knit team spares no effort in the vineyard or winery. The vineyards lie on a south-facing chalk escarpment, and are planted with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
A natural sun-trap and protected from prevailing winds, the vines benefit from maximum sun exposure, promoting ripening.
The vineyard is run according to a strict philosophy of sustainability; the winery uses solar panels as a source of renewable energy, and the vineyard team use a Boisselet cultivator to manage root and weed growth, by returning them gently to the soil, rather than resorting to ‘quick fix’ chemical herbicides and synthetic fertilisers.
