We will be releasing new wines in 2018, the 2017 vintage of Reichensteiner, a new Kent Gold, a new fruity dry white called The three Tenors will be available from the winery or mail order only and of course the new Summer Red 2017 is already available. Rock Lodge Rose' is almost sold out and the last or third bottling run will be availabe shortly. The new Medium White which we released in December 2017 has done well and a second Medium White is on the cards for release in March 2018..
Sparkling wine production is increasing and we are moving sparkling wine production to the upstairs area to increase space for bottling, labelling and disgorging downstairs. All our sparkling wines are made using the traditional champagne method and disgorged by hand. Springfield is still available but is now down to around 40 cases. The new Regent Sparkling wine will be available from March and we plan to start production of a new sparkling wine for exclusive winery sales only in February 2018.
Cider production is also set to increase in 2018 and we plan to introduce a new medium dry cider and a sparkling cider is also planned. New 3 bottle gift packs will be available from March 2018 either online, from the winery directly or at the farmers markets.
New market venues come up regularly and we have to be selective, after nearly 10 years of standing out in the cold at various venues we have become pretty adept at working out the non starters from the likely candidates. We have 7 regular venues that we attend each month and usually at least 2 larger events to attend in any one month. Our regular markets at present are Horsham, Wallington, Ripley, Rochester, Herne Bay & Walton on Thames . We are planning to attend Chislehurst & Lewes as regular venues as well and will post info on these as soon as we have confirmed our attendance.
