Exton Park, Exton
Taste your way through a brand new collection of sparkling Reserve Blends from this central Hampshire vineyard, with exclusive club and event space launching this Summer 2021.
Covering 60-acres of rolling chalklands, Exton Park is situated at the heart of Hampshire. One of the largest vineyards in the county, the terroir mirrors that of the world-renowned vineyards in the Champagne region. Which, by the way, are just eighty miles away across the Channel.
Exton Park also has a similar cool, northerly climate, pure chalk soils. And an extremely experienced French Chief Winemaker, too, in Corinne Seely. But what you’re tasting here is distinct from the wines produced by its famous neighbours. These English sparklers have their own identity. And they are establishing a keen following among oenophiles like your local Muddy.
Brand new for 2021, Exton Park have just launched their Reserve Blends. The signature range of gorgeous sparkling wines are already on the radar of big-hitter restaurants and Michelin Star chefs.
Chewton Glen, Lime Wood Hotel, The Greyhound on the Test, Greens and Winchester’s new Inn the Park will all serve Exton Park’s new Reserve Blends in their restaurants. Big foodie kudos too that Hampshire-born chef Simon Rogan is collaborating with the winery.
Exton Park’s Brut, Rosé and Blanc de Noirs Reserve Blends are expertly created. There are up to 32 wines in each bottle, all from a library of reserve wines that Corinne Seely has built over a decade. And her low-intervention, soil-to-glass approach is yielding some impressive results.
“Every grape that goes into a glass of Exton Park has been nurtured, pressed, stored, blended and aged with a focus on quality,” she says. “We let the purity of the ingredients do the talking.” Try and buy direct from the vineyard now, with free shipping over £50.
Exton Hall, Exton Park’s brand-spanking new event space with stunning vineyard views, is all set to open this Summer. Hosting events and local trade partners, there’ll also be exclusive access for members of The Vault, its brand new, soon-to-launch wine club. Err – where do we sign?!
