Court Garden is a family-run, single-estate vineyard and winery in East Sussex, set on a beautiful south-facing slope with the South Downs as a backdrop. They are passionate about the grapes and wine they make. In recent years, that passion has been rewarded with numerous national and international awards.
The vineyard was established in the spring of 2005 and now extends to 17 acres, mainly planted with the three classic varieties of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier for the production of Sparkling Wine, and also Pinot Gris, Ortega, Rondo and Pinot Blanc for use in still wine. Two rare old Champagne varieties of Arbanne and Petit Meslier are grown as well. Sussex shares similar geology to north-east France, the chalk of the downs runs beneath the Channel into the Champagne region. The local maritime climate is perfect for the production of sparkling wine.
