© 2021 Exton Park Vineyard LLP

At Exton Park, we know that extraordinary flavour starts with our soil.

Our vineyard is built, quite literally, from the ground up, on the distinctive chalky soil that sets our sixty acres of Hampshire apart. Our single vineyard has nine plots, carefully nurtured by Fred and his team, each planted at a different altitude and aspect, offering exceptional flavour variation in our grapes.

We nourish and nurture our vineyard using the most natural methods possible, by planting wildflowers, grasses and cover crops and meticulously hand-pruning our 120,000 vines. Come harvest time, only the ripest fruit is selected and swiftly transported to our purpose-built winery at the top of vineyard.

The grapes are picked and pressed plot-by-plot, to retain the variety of distinctive flavours.

The fresh juice is then fermented for the first time, creating still wines which we add to our reserve library. The wines are now ready to be transformed through the skill and experience of our Wine Director, Corinne Seely.

Reserve Blend

At Exton Park, we’ve pioneered a new approach to traditional method sparkling wines – our signature Reserve Blends.

If the grapes are born in the vineyard, they come of age in our winery.

This gleaming labyrinth of small-batch tanks has been meticulously designed by Corinne, to house Exton Park’s rarest treasure – our library of reserve wines, curated with care since 2011. It’s here that, every year after the annual harvest, the winemaking team cloister themselves away to begin the delicate science of composing our wines.

Our wines are artfully blended from our archive of reserves that we have built up over 10 years. We don’t use a base vintage, relying instead on our unique library to offer a complexity rarely seen in English sparkling wine. This guarantees the quality of every bottle, irrespective of the year’s weather or yield. It also provides exceptional consistency of flavour, ensuring that every sip is the purest possible reflection of our Hampshire vineyard.

Once a Reserve Blend has been crafted by our winery team, it is bottled and laid to rest in our wine cellars for at least 3 years. It’s here that the wine matures, evolves and ferments for the second time, creating the delicate pearlescent bubbles, complexity and iconic Exton Park style.

60 acres of Hampshire, bottled.
