Sussex Vineyards is family run, specialising in top quality English
sparkling wines from the Sussex High Weald.
Gerard and Jonica Fox own and run the two vineyards, either side of
the historic village of Mayfield in East Sussex.
The first vineyard (Hobdens) was planted in 2004-2005 and
produces the flagship saignée rosé: Mayfield Exprression Brut Rosé.
The second, larger vineyard (Lakestreet) was planted in 2010/2011
and produces a range of Blanc de Blancs and Blanc de Noirs:
Mayfield Essence, Inspiration and Tradition.
The grapes grown are Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay,
Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc.
The emphasis is on minimal intervention in the vineyard & light
manipulation in the winery. Quality is favoured over quantity.
Huge attention is taken to getting perfect fruit to the winery.
They are ideal for wine lovers who enjoy celebrating the intriguing
nuanced differences between vintages, tasting the variations of
season, place & vineyard parcel as expressed in the wines.
