Phoenix   A blend of different white varieties according to the year. Usually medium sweet. Sold out.

 

Hunting Pink   Our medium dry rose' made by whole bunch pressing some of our red grape varieties usually Rondo and Dornfelder. Not always available as we prefer to use our red grapers to make red wine. Sold out.

 

Naseby    Red wine made only in above average summers.  A blend of Acolon, Regent and Dornfelder grapes. Fruity and easy drinking. Sold out until late 2018.

 

Our wines have an alcohol content ranging from 10% to 12%

 

Cider

We have a very small orchard planted with traditional cider apple varieties, including Dabinett, Michelin, Tremletts Bitter, Kingston Black, Allington Pippin and Lord Derby from which we make and bottle our own cider on site.

 

Our vintage ciders have been named after two of the most significant events in English history which took place locally. Our dry cider is called Roundhead after the battle of Naseby in 1645 the decisive battle of the English Cival War and our medium dry cider is called King Richard III who was born in Northamptonshire and killed at the battle of Bosworth in Leicestershire in 1485 bringing to an end the Medieval Plantagenet era and heralding the modern age.

 

The alcohol content of both ciders is usually around 6.5%.

 

Being very popular they can sell out by Christmas in the year of bottling. In fact sold out now for 2017 but the good news is we have had a huge apple crop in Autumn 2017 so we will be well stocked from Summer 2018

 

 

Our medium dry vintage cider was entered into the CAMRA East Midlands Beer and Cider Festival in 2013 and was awarded a Gold Medal and voted best bottled cider. In 2014 our King Richard III Cider won another Gold Medal and in 2105 was voted best East Midlands bottled cider.
