MEET THE WINEMAKER: HENNERS
Wed, 27th Nov 2019 @18:30pm
When it comes to English wine there’s a lot to shout about, not least the stunning sparkling wines from Henners. Based just 4 miles from the sea in Herstmonceux, East Sussex, the 7 acre vineyard was created in 2007 by ex-Formula One engineer, Lawrence Warr.
Planted with traditional Champagne varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, the vines thrive in an idyllic microclimate created by the vineyard’s proximity to the sea, low altitude and steep, sunny, south facing slopes.
DURING THE EVENING COLLETTE WILL SHOWCASE HENNERS RANGE:
Benchmark quality which highlights the brilliance of the Henners vineyard and winemaking skills.
