I am truly passionate about English sparkling wine! Quite apart from the fact that we invented sparkling wine, we have the right substrate, the right climate and most importantly now, the right people with the expertise and enthusiasm to create a superior product.
There are now more wine producers in the UK than ever before and the number of acres under vines is growing every year.
With 2018 producing a bumper crop it is fortuitous that one of our top wine producers has decided to double the size of their facilities and open a brand new 200 seater tasting room and terrace.
Opened in September by owner and producer Richard Balfour-Lynn, “The View” is the jewel in the crown of Kent’s Hush Heath Winery.
The elevated terrace with its backdrop of beautifully manicured vineyards is the perfect place to sample a couple of glasses of fine UK fizz.
Richard and his team are planning to plant a further 130 acres to vines in the next 12 months predominantly focusing on the 3 traditional sparkling varieties. In the next 5 years, this expansion is expected to push Hush Heaths production to 500,000 bottles per year!
The View is a venue to champion English wine and visitors can also purchase sharing platters while they take in the vista.
Hush Heath Winery is less than an hour from central London and offers vineyard tours and tastings. The View is available as a venue for corporate hire and weddings.
