We are proud that all our wine is made here at Furleigh Estate from our own grapes. Unlike many of the larger English wineries we do not import grapes from “foreign places” like Sussex or East Anglia. Our Dorset wines are made from Dorset grapes.
Although most of our wines are sparkling we do also make still white, rosé and red wines. Our white wines are light and crisp, just right to have with the fish served at many local restaurants. Sea Pink, our very popular still rosé wine, is full of juicy wild strawberry flavours and perfect for barbecues and other summer drinking. Finally we also make a light red wine with a big heavy name – our Tyrannosaurus Red! We take time and care with this special red wine and it is not released until Christmas time each year. All our current still wines are silver medal winners.
Our sparkling wines are very special and have won many international gold medals and trophies. We use the classic Champagne grapes of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and the traditional bottle-fermented method to make our sparkling wine. The results are delightful, classic-style sparkling wines full of toasty aromas and peach and lime flavours.
