Markets

We released new wines in 2018, the 2017 vintage of Reichensteiner, a new Kent Gold, the new Summer Red 2017 & Autumn Red 2017. Rock Lodge Rose' is almost sold out and the last or third bottling run is now availabe but for how long? 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 the spring of 2019.

 

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 method and disgorged by hand. Springfield is still available but is now down to aroun 30 cases. New Tess Valley Sparkling, produced form Seyval from the 2017 harvest, has been released and will be available for Christmas. Regent is now almost completely sold out and will not be available in 2019

 

Cider production is also set to increase in 2019 and we plan to introduce a new medium dry cider and a bottle matured sparkling cider is now available. New 3 bottle gift packs will be available from March 2018 either online, from the winery directly or at the farmers markets. Draft cider is now available in the winery at the upstairs bar and is now a regular product at Farmers Markets. We will introduce the draft cider to the downstairs bar as well soon, just as soon as we finish building it!

Regular Venues

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 5 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 Chatham, Wallington, Ripley, Rochester & Herne Bay.

 

We are looking at some new venues for 2019, Chislehurst for one, possibly Windsor & Ascot and perhaps Walton on Thames again to see how things are going down there

 

We have taken the executive decision that we will no longer be attending Horsham or Lewes farmers markets in 2018 or 2019.
