Hidden deep in the Garden of England, Hush Heath Estate is home to the award winning English sparkling wine, Balfour Brut Rosé. Since its beginnings the Estate has grown its product range substantially and now boasts an exquisite selection of wines and ciders all produced from fruit grown in their beautiful vineyards and apple orchards.
The Estate comprises 400 acres of perfectly manicured vineyards, apple orchards and ancient oak woodlands rich with wildlife, flora and fauna all of which add to the beauty and provenance of what we produce.
The finest wines can only be produced from the finest fruit. Winemaking, therefore, starts in the vineyards. Nestled among the rolling hills, within The Garden of England, the vineyards enjoy quiet serenity and a favourable microclimate supporting optimal ripening conditions for prized grapes. In the wines and ciders, they use only fruit grown within Hush Heath Estate.
The best flavours and characters for sparkling wine production come from the three classic Champagne grape varieties; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. At Hush Heath there are 37 acres of land planted with this classic trio. The vineyards are designed and planted under the meticulous eye of one of England’s leading consultants and Masters of Wine. The vines and wines benefit from our outstanding soil; deep Wealden clay, unique to this particular corner of Kent, which provides dense structure in the wines and vibrant, lively acidity.
Viticulturalists at Hush Heath have been working the land for three generations and have an innate understanding of the soil as well as each and every row of vines. They take a hands on approach in the vineyards, inspecting them daily, and being careful that each decision for the current vintage supports the best possible outcome for the following year. Over the course of 2017/18 they will be planting three new vineyards on Hush Heath, taking our total acreage to 50 acres.
