This week’s ‘Cider of the Week’ is from Oxney Organic Estate, the largest organic vineyard in the UK, who also produce a beautiful sparkling cider (and not just wines…). As it is English Wine Week we are showcasing both their wine and cider in our shop this week.
Oxney are based down a tiny lane in Beckley, East Sussex - between Rye and Tenterden. Go and visit their lovely tasting room and shop or join them for a guided tour. They make organic still and sparkling wines using only their own grapes and have a very low intervention, natural winemaking ethos. The vineyard is part of an 850 acre organic farming estate with old barns converted into lovely holiday cottages and, located in the vineyard, wonderful shepherd's huts.
Oxney also produce a wonderful traditional method sparkling cider! And we have this available in the shop at the moment.
CIDER OF THE WEEK
Organic sparkling cider made using the traditional method. Lovely bubbles and colour. Bright and elegant nose with a subtle floral lift and aromas of hedgerow blossom, freshly picked apples backed up with a hint of toast. Serve in a sparkling wine glass.
You can grab a glass (or bottle) at our shop this week… so head on over!
