Time Well Spent
The Benefits Of Old Age
Of all the alchemical mysteries that winemaking involves, let's shine a light on one that takes place well away from the eyes of the consumer. The dark art of cellar ageing. While some wines are best enjoyed a few years after they’re first bottled, others linger in the depths for longer. What lies behind the decision to make older vintages available again years after they were first released?
Winemaking: How It All Begins
How can some grapes growing on a vine eventually come to elevate the everyday into a special occasion? Here's how we turn what happens in the vineyard into what happens in the bottle.
Our Home Village
All fine wines come with a sense of place, the singularity of their origin. In our case, it's the ancient flint and limestone village of Appledore in Kent, a handful of miles north of the English Channel, that adds its character to our sparkling wines. It's a spot worth exploring on your visit to Gusbourne Estate.
