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%.

 

Unfortunately we are out of stock and we did not produce any cider in 2018 as there was a small crop and we were hard pressed to pick and press the huge grape crop.

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.
