bolney kew gardens sparkling wine

Bolney Wine Estate has teamed up with London’s Royal Botanical Gardens in Kew to launch two new “quintessentially English” sparkling wines.

Bolney Kew Sparkling White and Bolney Kew Sparkling Rosé (rsp: £31/75cl) are available now via high-end retailers and in Kew Gardens’ own retail outlet.

The launch of the wines by the partnership aimed to “widen the awareness of English horticulture and viticulture,” said Sam Linter, Bolney Wine Estate head winemaker, who oversaw production of the wines on the Bolney Estate in Haywards Heath, West Sussex.

“English winemaking is an industry we are pleased to support, and the Bolney Wine Estate is an excellent example of sustainable wine production,” added Quincy Leon, head of licensing and development at the Royal Botanical Gardens.

“[Linter] 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.”
