England's only Outstanding sparkling white wine
Fairmile Vineyard's maiden vintage beat highly distinguished and long-established vineyards to be voted England's only Outstanding sparkling white wine by Decanter wine and lifestyle magazine (January 2020 edition). Out of 53 sparkling white wines costing under £50:
- 16 came as Recommended (86-89 points/100).
- 26 were Highly Recommended (90-94 points/100).
- Only Fairmile Vineyard's Classic Cuvée was deemed Outstanding (95-97 points/100).
(Rosé sparkling wines were not eligible for judging on this occasion).
This follows Thames & Chilterns Vineyard Association awards of a gold medallion for our rosé , and a bronze for our classic cuvée within a month of launch in August 2018.
Thank you also BBC TV Oxford for featuring Fairmile Vineyard in South Today News on 22nd August, reinforcing our reputation for top-notch bubbly from a beautiful location.
