Bolney Wine Estate wins Winery of the Year

21 July, 2017

The Bolney Wine Estate has won ‘Winery of the Year’ at the inaugural UK Wine Awards, led by Wine Producers’ Julia Trustram Eve and members of the EWP and UK Vineyards Association.

The UK Wine Awards is the national competition for wine produced from grapes grown in England and Wales, inspired by the growing popularity of English and Welsh wines.

Sam Linter, winemaker and MD of Bolney Wine Estate, said: “We are over the moon to have won ‘Winery of the Year’ at the UK Wine Awards – we still can’t quite believe it.

“It’s such a prestigious accolade and an endorsement of the hard work each and every one of us at Bolney puts into our wines.

“We’re delighted that UK wine is finally getting the attention it deserves – and we’re incredibly excited for what the future holds for the industry.”

Bolney also won ‘Top Still Wine’ and ‘Most Outstanding Single Varietal Wine’ for its Foxhole Vineyard Pinot Gris 2016.
