Ripe Pinot Noir
Nestling in the rolling hills of the North Downs in Kent England lies one of the finest producers of English Wine. Throwley Vineyard Reserve wines are produced from grapes grown on south west facing slopes at a height of 75 metres. There are just under four acres of vines (c.2500 vines) which were planted in 1986 with both red and white cultivars. We grow Ortega, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes. The Ortega is an early ripening grape that makes a delicious dry still white wine whilst the Chardonnay and Pinot Noir (pictured right) make a world class bottle fermented Sparkling wine.

Throwley Vineyard has consistently won international awards for its wines including rare Gold medals in the International Wine and Spirit Competition and International Wine Challenge. In 2006 we won a silver medal at the International Wine Challenge for our 2001 Sparkling wine (coincidentally the same medal that Dom Perignon 1998 won this year) and a commendation for the 2003 Ortega still white wine.
