Award-winning Kent winery, Simpsons’ Wine Estate, hosted their Open House event on Saturday 20 November with all proceeds of the ticket sales going to local charity, Demelza Hospice Care for Children.
Three local suppliers also joined in the festivities to make it even more special, including Macknade and Annie Brown Aromathérapie offering some Kent-based feasting and gifting inspiration. Plus, Barretts Jaguar Land Rover provided two of their latest luxurious four-wheel drives for VIP visits to our Railway Hill Vineyard, which proved to be exceptionally popular.
The team at the Estate would like to thank everyone who attended for their support and in raising £760.00 for the Hospice in the lead up to Christmas.
Ruth Simpson, Co-founder, remarked; “We were delighted to open the doors of the Estate once again and in doing so, raise money for Demelza Hospice Care for Children. Having three of our valued local partners present made the whole experience even more special. We loved sharing a glass with so many of our existing customers and also introducing our wines to some new ones! We would like to thank all involved for their support!”
Petra Bones, Senior Corporate Partnerships Manager at Demelza, expressed her thanks on behalf of the charity; "Demelza will give every child we see the very best care we can over the holidays – this is only possible with the support of our community - people like you, your team and customers. Your support will help us to wave a magic wand over children with serious or terminal conditions this Christmas, to make sure they receive the expert medical care they need – and the Christmas fun and joy they deserve."
Simpsons’ Wine Estate began their partnership with Demelza in 2020, pledging to raise awareness and funds for the charity, which became even more pressing during the pandemic. They look forward to continuing their efforts into the new year, with more events planned in 2022.

This is why we settled for nothing less than the finest parcels of land in southern England to plant our vines for Simpsons’ first English sparkling wine.
