Exton Park, Exton
Taste your way through a new collection of English sparkling Reserve Blend wines from this central Hampshire vineyard, with exclusive club and stunning event space
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.
New in 2021, Exton Park launched their Reserve Blends. And 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 Inn the Park 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.
Released in autumn 2021, Exton Park’s brilliant new bubbly, RB45 Blanc de Blancs, is complex with a golden colour, fine bubbles and toasty tropical fruit notes. 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 will host events and local trade partners. Just launched in May 2022, a new club, The Vault, gives members exclusive access to new sparkling releases, private tastings, members-only events at Exton Hall and priority access to rare bottlings. Err – where do we sign?!
