Our flagship wine, Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs, is made using hand selected (predominantly Burgundian clone) Chardonnay. The wine is aged for a minimum of thirty six months on lees and three months on cork before we deem it ready for release.
Our vision is simple. We strive to create the finest wines in the world. A deep respect for nature, an uncompromising quest for quality and a fastidious approach to detail is at the heart of everything we do - from the way we grow our grapes to the way we age our wines. The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410. In 2004, Andrew Weeber took over the estate with a clear vision and a single goal: to create English sparkling wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe. The first vines were planted that year. In 2010 the debut vintages of Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2006 and Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs 2006 were released to critical acclaim. Gusbourne quickly earned a reputation as a producer of outstanding quality wines, with accolades from some of the industry’s most exacting critics. Our recent award highlights include a record six gold medals in 2015, including two ’gold outstanding’ medals awarded by the international wine and spirits competition. In 2013 Gusbourne was admitted to the AIM market of the London Stock Exchange, with the distinction of being the first and only UK wine producer ever quoted on AIM.
