200-year-old family estate Ashling Park Estate in the beautiful South Downs National Park is on an exciting new adventure. In 2018 Gail Gardner persuaded her family to plant vines in the 10-acre hay meadow. A sheltered site with good soil it has proved to be an ideal spot for growing grapes.
Gail leads this new adventure for the estate, working with leading experts including one of the best winemakers in England, Dermot Sugrue. The results are award-winning wines. Including WineGB’s 2020 Gold medal and Trophy winners for Best Classic Cuvée NV and Best Sparking Rosé.
