Kent Winery’s First Vintage Makes A Sparkling Entrance

Kent Winery, Mereworth Wines, has been awarded a Silver Medal in the recent Wine GB Awards for its very first vintage of English Sparkling Wine from its Wateringbury vineyard; ‘White From Black 2018’, released just in April of this year. Having already received great acclaim from the local community, it has now been recognised nationally in the Wines of Great Britain Awards, putting it amongst the finest wines in the country. Will Boscawen planted his vineyards in Wateringbury in 2016, in the perfect spot on the south facing slopes of the Kent downs. A year later, he transformed the old oast at Brewer’s Hall, Mereworth, into a winery. Here, alongside wine-maker Scott Gebbie, Will converts all the hard work on the vineyard into exceptional sparkling wine, which has travelled no more than a mile in its production. “Here at Mereworth Wines”, Will explains, “we are instilled with a passion for our vineyards, our grapes and for fine wine-making; pouring our love, and a lot of hard work, into the land around us to create some truly beautiful wine”. Mereworth Wines’ ‘White From Black 2018’ is its first ever vintage; a traditional English white sparkling wine made from black Pinot grapes. This medium-dry and elegant sparkling wine is celebratory of its roots in the Garden of England, and produced entirely by Will and Scott. This is the sign of great things to come for Mereworth Wines, as it embarks on a long and exciting journey crafting deliciously enchanting wine from its Kent vineyard. The next addition to the family will be the ‘White From White’, set to be released in September, made from the vineyard’s Chardonnay grapes. Mereworth Wines’ ‘White From Black 2018’ is available to purchase now from, followed imminently by their ‘White From White’ later this year.
