Event Description

English Sparkling Wine has achieved international acclaim in recent years, often beating Champagne and other sparkling wines in blind-tasting competitions. The quality of sparkling wine from English wine producers is now truly world-class. As such, the Hampshire Wine School has invited Gusborne to champion English Sparkling Wine.

THE PEOPLE BEHIND THE AWARD-WINNING GUSBORNE ESTATE

Chief Vineyard Manager Jon Pollard promotes a low-intervention, sustainable approach to vineyard management, one that’s been driving the way Gusborne make wine from day one. Only the best quality fruit is harvested, all hand-picked by their skilled vineyard team. Gusbourne’s unique terroirs and mild microclimates add their own depth and complexity. Under Jon’s careful stewardship, the combination of site, soil and precision in the vineyards means that only the best grapes are used in our winemaking.

Head Winemaker Charlie Holland – the only three-time winner of the IWSC English Wine Producer of the Year – oversees every stage of the winemaking process. Charlie’s exacting standards guide Gusbourne’s winemaking team from pressing our grapes in whole bunches through to blind-tasting, blending and extended ageing on lees and cork. His experience, instinct and skill come together to craft the best expression of our wines, year after year.

On the night, you will have the opportunity to taste 6 of their wines, 4 sparkling and 2 still wines, as follows:

  • Brut Reserve 2019 
  • Brut Blanc de Blancs 2018
  • Brut Blanc de Noirs 2018
  • Brut Rosé 2018
  • Guinevere still Chardonnay 2020
