2017 London Sparkling Brut

British wines from a vineyard in north London helping improve mental and physical health.

The 2017 vintage of Forty Hall Vineyard’s Sparkling Brut is made in the traditional Champagne method from organically grown Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay grapes, tended and harvested by hand by the volunteers at Forty Hall Vineyard in North London.

Their wines are made for us by multi award-winning English wine maker, Will Davenport and reflect the best of low-intervention, natural English winemaking.

The 2017 vintage is fresh, zesty and crisp with hints of apple and ederflower and its vibrant acidity will ensure that the 2017 vintage will become even more delicious with age.
