    WINES OF PROVENANCE

    WINES OF PROVENANCE

    At Simpsons, we believe that the finest wines convey a rich sense of provenance and integrity, firmly rooted in the characteristics and exquisite nuances of their terroir. This is why we settled for nothing less than the finest parcels of land in southern England to plant our vines for Simpsons’ first English sparkling wine.

    The Simpsons vineyards occupy glorious positions on the sunny, sheltered slopes of the North Downs of Kent, protected from the whimsy of the English climate by ancient woodland and anchored in the iconic chalky soils so highly revered in the world of sparkling wine.

    On our French wine estate, the award-winning Domaine Sainte Rose in the Languedoc region, we have always pursued the cleaner, truer flavours of the grape, and we are now bringing this savoir-faire to our English vineyards. With rootstock meticulously matched to our soil and a new world-class winery just minutes from the vines, we are proud to say that you will only find Simpsons grapes in Simpsons wines – none bought in, no method outsourced.

    Each vine has been planted by us and nurtured by us, and each bunch of grapes will, when the moment is quite right, be picked and pressed by us – allowing us at every step to deliver the fullest expression of our Kentish terroir. Once bottled, the wine gently ferments for a second time according to the méthode traditionnelle and then matures without haste, gaining elegance over the course of years spent resting on its lees.

    By personally delivering the lightest of touches at each step of the winemaking process, we believe we are creating wines of great provenance and presence, so that when every glass of Simpsons English sparkling wine is poured, each sip leads you back to the North Downs...

    Vineyard and Winery Tour and Tasting

    £22.50

    Join a fascinating tour of Simpsons’ Wine Estate, situated in the North Downs Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Charles & Ruth Simpson have made award-winning wines at Domaine Sainte Rose, their stunning, southern French property, for the past 16 years. In 2014 they brought their expertise and savoir-faire back to the UK establishing Simpsons Wine Estate in Barham, Kent, with an aspiration to create the finest quality Method Traditional English sparkling wine.

    The visit will begin with a walking tour of ‘The Roman Road’ vineyard, where you will learn how the vines are planted, trained, nurtured and harvested. You will then return to the state-of-the-art winery, where you will be guided through the entire Method Traditional winemaking process.

    The first sparkling wines from Simpsons will be released late 2018, but your tour will culminate in a very special tasting of wines from Domaine Sainte Rose, the Simpsons southern French Estate in the comfort of our the brand new Glass House Tasting Room. No visit to Simpsons Wine Estate is complete without a trip down the 'Fruit Chute' helter skelter.

    (Please be aware that The Glass House Tasting Room is situated up 2 flights of stairs. We advise all our guests to drink sensibly and consider means of transport when attending our events. This event is for over 18's only.)

    For the very first Simpsons Wine Estate Supper Club we are thrilled to have a Michelin Starred Chef take up residence in our Glass House Tasting Room.

    This Chef understands the importance of sourcing fresh, local produce and of cooking with restraint, which aligns perfectly with the Simpsons’ philosophy to use only our own Estate grown grapes and to exercise minimal intervention in the winery to create English wines of provenance and integrity.

    Guests will enjoy a superb 4-course tasting menu, each course paired with wines from Charles & Ruth Simpson’s English and French properties. During this exclusive dinner, you will be amongst the first to taste Canterbury Rose 2016, the first Simpsons’ Wine Estate sparkling Rosé that will be released in late Autumn 2018.

    Details of the Chef and the menu will be announced nearer the time.
