A Sparkling Sussex Sojourn: Upperton Vineyards Lands in Liphook & Petersfield for English Wine Week!

James Alexander

Raise a glass, Liphook and Petersfield! #EnglishWineWeek is upon us, and this year, we're popping the cork on something truly special.

Imagine this: rolling green hills of Sussex bathed in sunshine, laughter echoing through the air, and three generations working hand-in-hand to craft something truly magical. That's the idyllic scene that unfolds at Upperton Vineyards, a family-run haven where the secrets of the vine whisper on the breeze. Forget the stuffy, big-name Champagne labels – Upperton's sparkling wines are brimming with English charm and a character all their own. Each sip transports you to that picture-perfect Sussex landscape, the laughter of the Rogers family a silent toast on your palate.

But why Upperton, you ask? Well, buckle up, because we're about to uncork a world of reasons to celebrate:

Award-Winning Fizz That Makes You Say "Cheers!": These aren't your average bubbles, folks. Upperton's sparkling wines have garnered accolades and awards, clinking their way to glory at prestigious competitions. So, rest assured, you're in for a taste sensation that's sure to leave your taste buds doing the happy dance.

A Toast to English Terroir: Ever heard of "terroir"? It's the unique combination of climate, soil, and grape variety that gives a wine its distinct personality. Upperton's vineyards bask in the cool, breezy climate of Sussex, where the grapes develop a delicate balance of floral notes and crisp acidity. This translates to a flavour profile that whispers of English meadows in springtime, a refreshing contrast to the bolder styles you might be accustomed to.

Family, Love & Bubbly: A Recipe for Bubbly Bliss: Each bottle of Upperton isn't just a beverage; it's a tangible expression of passion, dedication, and good old-fashioned hard work. The Rogers family has poured their heart and soul into this venture, and you can practically taste their love story in every sip. It's a testament to the power of family, tradition, and the enduring magic of creating something beautiful together.

Beyond the Bottle: A Celebration of Sustainability: Upperton Vineyards is more than just about crafting delicious bubbly. They're committed to sustainable practices, ensuring their vines flourish for generations to come. From integrated vineyard management to responsible waste reduction, they're setting an example for the industry—and that's something we can all raise a glass to!

Now, for the exciting part: This weekend only, our Liphook and Petersfield shops will be transformed into a mini Sussex haven, welcoming you to explore the world of Upperton Vineyards. We'll be hosting tastings throughout the weekend, giving you the chance to discover your new favourite sparkling wine. Plus, every bottle you purchase is a toast to supporting a fantastic local producer who's making waves in the English wine scene.

But wait, there's more! Feeling like royalty (because, let's face it, sparkling wine evokes a certain regal air)? Our friendly staff can help you find the perfect food pairings to elevate your Upperton experience. We can recommend delectable nibbles that will complement the unique flavours of their wines and turn it into a full-blown celebration.

Here's the thing: Opportunities like this don't come around every day. This is a limited-time chance to experience the elegance, charm, and undeniable brilliance of English sparkling wine at its finest. So, mark your calendars, Liphook and Petersfield, because we're about to embark on a sparkling Sussex sojourn together! We'll see you and your bubbly enthusiasm in our stores this weekend.
