Our CEO's favourite. From a small village in Kent, England, the Davenport Horsmonden Dry White is a wine that's light and refreshing with a lovely floral and peach aroma. Did we also mention that it's organic too? It's perfect for summer days, or really any day when you need a pick-me-up treat. This wine goes great with food, so don't be afraid to pour yourself a glass (or two) with your dish - as long as it's not too strongly flavoured.
If you're looking for delicious, easy-drinking wine, then this is the one for you. Cheers!
Looking for an English Pinot Noir to place your bets on? Then look no further than the silky and velvety Litmus Red. This elegant red wine is made from 100% Pinot Noir grapes, and it boasts a lovely ruby colour. As for tasting notes, on the nose is full of vibrant red fruits and cloves with a touch of earthy spice on the finish. So whether you're serving it up at a party or enjoying it with a meal, you can be sure that Litmus Red will hit the spot.
Move over, French wine. There's a new number one, and it comes from right here in England. That's right, English Vine's very own Number 1 wine - we've become proud parents of this bottle. Made from white grapes (Bacchus) grown in Essex, this refreshing white wine will go with any situation. So if you're looking for an easy-to-drink white wine like the Lyme Bay Shoreline or a good Pinot Blanc in general, look no further than Number 1. And here's one last secret about it: It's best served super chilled. You're welcome.

Cheeky, berry-forward, and unapologetically delicious, Shotley Pinot Noir is the perfect wine for any occasion. At first sip, you'll be greeted by subtle notes of blackcurrant and cherry. These fruits give way to deeper flavours of blackberry and plum fruit, resulting in a well-rounded and complex wine. The soft tannins create a smooth mouthfeel, while the acidity provides just the right amount of refreshment. Overall, Shotley Pinot Noir is one of the best English red wines you'll find.
