Bolney and Kew collaborate for new wine range

A new range of premium English sparkling wines have been created through a collaboration between Bolney Wine Estate an the Royal Botanical Gardens at Kew.

The Bolney Kew Sparkling collection includes a sparkling white and a sparkling rosé.

The relationship between the two English brands is based on a shared interest for preserving biodiversity. The Bolney Wine Estate is a haven for wildlife, and through its production methods and cultural practices, promotes and maintains soil health, fertility, and stability in its vineyards. As well as being a renowned botanic garden and UNESCO world heritage site, Kew, is a world-leading research centre on plant and fungal science.

English flora and fauna is celebrated in the presentation of The Bolney Kew Sparkling collection, featuring dragonflies, ladybirds and wild flowers often seen at the vineyard. These visuals were inspired by illustrations from the Kew Gardens archives.

Sam Linter, head winemaker at Bolney Wine Estate says: “We have been producing wines since the 1970’s and have continued to grow and develop over this time. We are so proud to add the Bolney Kew Sparkling collection to our offerings and widen the awareness of English horticulture and viticulture through our partnership.”

Quincy Leon, head of licensing and development at the Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew, says: “English winemaking is an industry we are pleased to support, and the Bolney Wine Estate is an excellent example of sustainable wine production. Their wines are of the highest quality and Sam and her team share our thirst for promoting the importance of UK biodiversity, so we are proud to partner with them to produce this delightful range of sparkling wines.”

The Bolney Kew Sparkling wine collection will be available to buy in the Kew Gardens shop now and will be exclusively available in high end retailers following the launch.
