Hanwell Winery: in the rolling hills of South Nottinghamshire

The Hanwell Wine Estate is situated in the beautiful rolling countryside of South Nottinghamshire in the Midlands and North in the United Kingdom. The winery is a second-generation family run vineyard, which was established in the 1970s. The first vines were planted in a dilapidated greenhouse in the family’s garden and additional vines were later planted in 1979. Since then the estate has been producing award winning Nottinghamshire wines.

Traditional champagne method

In May 2012 the estate’s first Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes were planted and were harvested in 2015 all by the hands of the family and their friends. Currently there are over 8000 vines, which are all still hand tended. The wines produced at Hanwell are the Nottinghamshire high quality sparkling wines, using the traditional champagne method.

The whole winemaking process

Each vintage is harvested by hand and then transported the short distance to Eglantine’s winery. After the grapes are sorted, they are destemmed and crushed. Mechanical presses trod the grapes into a must which is a freshly pressed grape juice that contains the skins, seeds and solids of the grape. After this, the process of fermentation begins whereby commercial yeast cultures are added to the must. This process continues until all of the sugar I converted into alcohol and a dry wine is produced.
Following this, clarification begins, which is the process through which remaining solids are removed so that the wine can be aged and bottled.

At Hanwell winery, award winning wine maker Tony Skuriat uses these traditional methods to create the highest quality English sparkling wine
