Discover our wine

We aim to produce award-winning quality still white wines each year, supplemented by a sparkling blend when conditions favour.

Bacchus 2019

Bacchus Wine Label - statue of the god Bacchus

We only make Bacchus in the best years. Warden Abbey Bacchus 2019 is our first since the 2015 vintage which won a bronze medal in both the 2017 Decanter World Wide Awards and UK Wine Awards. The 2019 is still young and will continue to develop over the coming year.

The Reformer 2018

Closeup of The Reformer White wine

Sister wine to our hugely popular Novicemaster. Its refreshing acidity gives rapier like precision and purity.

Warden Abbey Brut 2015

A pear and tropical fruit influence gives a sweet feel to the mid palate, nice depth of flavour with lime and apple at the back refreshing the long finish.

Very Low Stock - only available by the glass at vineyard events
