Wiston Estate Winery

Sussex, England

Food & Drink


There may be nearly six hundred acres on the Wiston Estate but since 2006 all the interest has been focused on a certain sixteen. This special area of the estate sits deep in the heart of the Sussex countryside, and is now producing some of the most exciting sparkling wine in the UK today.

We follow the direction of a small wooden sign with ‘Wiston Wines’ painted on it. We then pass by a number of old farm buildings before the vineyard comes into view. It is a scene straight out of the South of France, vines stretching out as far as the eye can see, all set perfectly in a peaceful vineyard surrounded by nature. This area is ideal for growing grapes suited to sparkling wine, as the climate and soil are almost identical to that of the Champagne region. The other major advantage is, the Goring family has farmed this land since 1783 and knows exactly how to get the best out of the area.
