About Bluebell Vineyard Estates:
Bluebell Vineyard Estates is nestled in the hamlet of Furners Green, Sussex, near the famous Bluebell Railway and historic Sheffield Park. The multi-award winning vineyard and winery, established in 2005, specialises in the production of English sparkling wines using the classic champagne grape varieties Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, as well as Seyval Blanc.
Bluebell's sparkling wines are hand-crafted using the méthode traditionelle. With a focus on quality, a meticulous attention to detail in the vineyard and winery and a philosophy to ‘let the fruit do the talking’ Bluebell Vineyard strives to produce wines that evoke the flavours and aromas of England. The estate has achieved over 40 national and international awards since our first release in 2007.
Our favoured position on the edge of the South Downs National Park, mild climate and distinctive geology means that we can more than rival other sparkling wines from around the world.
These gifts of nature combined with the skills and dedication of our workforce, led by one of the UK’s best known winemakers, Kevin Sutherland, means our wines are amongst England’s finest.
