Mothers come in all guises. Grandmothers. Mothers-in-law. Mother figures. Mothers-to-be. At Gusbourne we’re rather drawn to the mother of invention. But unlike that well-known expression, we’re driven not by necessity but by an unswerving commitment to innovation, quality and sustainability. We see ourselves as custodians of our unique terroir, nurturing and caring for the land that is the starting point for everything we do. A philosophy that mothers can probably relate to.
So to celebrate and show appreciation for all the mothers in our lives on Mothering Sunday in the UK (normally marked on the fourth Sunday of Lent) and on Mother’s Day in Europe, the US, Canada and other Commonwealth nations (8th May 2022), we naturally propose a gift synonymous with celebration – sparkling wine.
And since this year’s Mothering Sunday also falls on the first day of British Summer Time, what better excuse for a day out in the gorgeous Kent countryside relaxing and enjoying wine together. Our hosted tours are a lovely way to experience Gusbourne together – wandering among the vines, tasting our wines and enjoying some delicious seasonal local food at The Nest, where idyllic views over the vineyards are also included. And springtime here brings the first green shoots, wildflower blossoms, birdsong and – fingers crossed – plenty of sunshine.
Visit the Gusbourne Estate with your mum and treat her to an Estate Tour or Discovery Tour. These tours also make an excellent gift that can be booked at any time beyond Mother’s Day too.
To toast everything that’s great about mums everywhere? How about a vintage English Sparkling Wine matched to their tastes.
