Winery Visit – Chapel Down

Had the pleasure of a small group visit to Chapel Down across the border in Kent who were joint winners of the best winery in the South East at the recent WineGB awards.

Tom gave us an excellent tour of the winery followed by a tasting of some of their excellent wines:

Bacchus 2018 (still bacchus silver medal winner)

English Rose 2019

Chardonnay 2017

Kit’s Coty Chardonnay 2017 (still single varietal white trophy winner)

Classic NV Brut – great complexity and length so took some home

Rose Brut NV (sparkling rose silver medal winner and my personal favourite)

Three Graces 2014 (Classic Cuvee Vintage silver medal winner) fabulously intense
