HeartoftheGarden

Flowering is underway in the vineyard across all varieties & looking very clean with the dry conditions we have at the moment. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Early signs indicate that there is a good crop out there & we now need a good run of warm weather through flowering & into setting. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #englishvineyard #winemaking #BiddendenVineyard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #heartofthegarden #englishwine #vineflower #inthevineyard #producedinkent #kentwine #winegardenofengland #vineyard #winewednesday #adayinmyboots #vineyardwalk #agriculture #viticulture #ortega #seasons #summer #june #visitkent

Bacchus 2016 is now available from the Vineyard shop & online for home delivery. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Made from the Bacchus grape, one of England’s most interesting varieties for still wines, this is a dry white wine with a crisp finish. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Bacchus grapes have a strong & distinctive aromatic flavour with characteristics which develop well in the bottle over time. An ideal alternative to a Sauvignon Blanc. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #bacchus #englishwine #biddendenvineyard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #biddendenwine #producedinkent #localwine #kentwine #whitewine #winemaking #familybusiness #newrelease #newvintage #godofwine #englishbacchus #tastingnotes #winelover #wineoftheday #winegardenofengland #heartofthegarden

It’s the final day of #EnglishWineWeek & it only seems right to finish on a sweet wine. Biddenden Schönburger 2016 is a light blush fruity sweet wine made with late harvest grapes which have been left on the vine to develop higher natural sugars. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Flavours of honey, lychee and elderflower adorn this lusciously sweet, rich white wine. Ideally served lightly chilled as an aperitif. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #EnglishWineWeek #sweetwine #biddendenvineyards ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #schönburger #englishwine #kentwine #winegardenofengland #producedinkent #estategrown #familybusiness #winemaking #tastingnotes #winegardenofengland #heartofthegarden #carnations #inmyvase #dessertwine #aperitif #biddenden #kent #sunday #biddendenwine

Our charity tour is well underway & so we thought we’d share today’s #EnglishWineWeek choice, which is none other than our signature wine, Biddenden Ortega 2016. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Approximately half our plantings are Ortega & this is the wine which we are best known for. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Biddenden Ortega is an off-dry white wine which is deliciously fruity. Serve as an aperitif or pair with lightly spicy dishes & simple seafood. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #Ortega #EnglishWine #BiddendenVineyards ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #kentwine #weekendwine #tastingnotes #englishvineyard #winemaking #englishwinemaking #producedinkent #lovelocal #localwine #visitkent #winery #biddendenortega #wineoftheday #vineyardtour #winetasing #heartofthegarden

As it’s Friday, we had to choose fizz for today’s #EnglishWineWeek wine! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Gribble Bridge Sparkling Rosé 2014 has just recently been released and is made using 100% Gamay. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ An off-dry sparkling rosé with blushing damask rose tones which come to life thanks to the inexhaustible stream of bubbles. The palate conjures up sweet summer fruit, think strawberry, raspberry & pear, with a half-squeeze of lemon. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #FridayFizz #weekendwine #biddendenvineyard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #englishwine #localwine #kentwine #englishfizz #sparklingwine #englishsparklingwine #producedinkent #gamay #pinkfizz #kentwine #winegardenofengland #lovelocal #supportlocal #visitkent #winelover #tastingnotes #winetasting #heartofthegarden

Today for English Wine Week we’ve chosen our Pinot Noir 2016 rosé which has been attracting quite a bit of attention! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Another of our limited release wines made using 100% Pinot Noir. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Described by Matthew Jukes as “silky, refreshing, perfumed, pale, red-apple-skinned and cherry-stone-soaked”. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Pick up a bottle from the Vineyard shop, but be quick - once it’s gone, it’s gone! ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #EnglishWineWeek #PinotNoir #BiddendenVineyard ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #englishwine #roséwine #englishvineyard #estategrown #familybusiness #tastingnotes #wine #kentwine #winegardenofengland #kentvineyard #wineweek #wineoftheday #thirstythursday #limitededition #visitkent #tenterden #biddenden #HeartoftheGarden

We've chosen our Gribble Bridge Dornfelder 2016 as today's wine for English Wine Week. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Made using 100% Dornfelder, this is an off-dry light, refreshing red wine with fresh raspberry & summer fruit flavours.
