Amongst the rolling countryside of South Nottinghamshire, the vines of Hanwell Wine Estate are being hand-tended, to grow grapes for English Sparkling Wine, available from 2018.


Vineyard owners, William and Helenka Brown, planted the traditional Champagne-variety vines in 2012. They hope Hanwell Wine Estate will become a destination for people to enjoy the great outdoors and experience award-winning English Sparkling Wine.
