Grown in Herefordshire. Made in London.
The Bacchus grapes for this wine come from a stunning vineyard near the town of Ledbury in Herefordshire, England. They are grown on a south facing hillside with views over the Malvern Hills. The lady who cares for the vines is a real character and she loves what she does.
We hand destemmed the grapes and foot crushed them to break up the skins and extract additional flavour. We used a variety of winemaking techniques to make a slightly different version of this classic British varietal. We fermented some on skins, as you would a red wine, some in French oak using naturally present yeasts and some in a stainless-steel tank. We then blended these before filtering and bottling. We think it smells like elderflower and green apples. The palate is pretty textural with hints of citrus fruit giving it zest.
Grown in Lombardy. Made in London.
The fruit for our Chardonnay was sourced from a beautiful winegrowing region in the North West of Italy. The vineyard is owned by a family who have been passionate grape growers and winemakers for generations. The sunny hillside vines are planted on a mixture of clay and limestone, are naturally low yielding, providing fruit with great concentration and flavour.
The grapes were handpicked and whole-bunch pressed to used French oak barrels for fermentation and ageing. We think the wine shows citrus and melon notes with an underlying creamy palate. Subtle vanilla and biscuity flavours add to the complexity and length.

The fruit for our Pinot Noir was sourced from a beautiful winegrowing region in the North West of Italy. The vineyard is owned by a family who have been passionate grape growers and winemakers for generations. The sunny hillside vines are planted on a mixture of clay and limestone, are naturally low yielding, providing fruit with great concentration and flavour.
The grapes were handpicked then destemmed, spending a total of 24 days on skins before being pressed into used French oak barrels for malolactic fermentation and ageing. We think the wine smells of wild dried herbs, blackberries and the forest floor. The palate showcases firm tannins, cocoa and a few spicy notes.
RENEGADE LONDON SPARKLING 2016 BLANC DE NOIRS ENGLISH SPARKLING WINE
Grown in Suffolk, Made in London.
London Made Blanc de Noirs English Sparkling Wine
White sparkling wine made from two red grape varieties grown in England – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier.
Grapes were hand harvested and whole bunch pressed manually using a 100 litre wooden basket press. Juice went straight into ex-Burgundy Chardonnay french oak barrels for primary fermentation. The wine was regularly hand stirred to increase contact with the lees and improve complexity.
Wine underwent malolatic fermentation before being hand bottled to undergo secondary fermentation.
Bottles are currently undergoing secondary fermentation in the crypt of a well known London church.
We will age them until at least August 2018 but probably a little longer. We want the wine to be amazing. Great wine takes time. Read more here.

Grown in Bordeaux. Made in London.
The fruit for this white wine comes from Blaye in Bordeaux. The grapes were grown by the Terrigeol family who have been perfecting their craft for generations. We feel very privileged that this typically French family agreed to sell a portion of their harvest to us.
The grapes were destemmed and the juice kept in contact with the skins for a number of hours to help extract flavour. They were then gently pressed and we fermented the majority of the juice in a stainless-steel tank to maintain purity but with a small percentage fermented in French oak for character. We think the wine shows hints of gunpowder and flint on the nose, which gives way to a soft aroma of lime zest. The palate is dominated by lemon, lime and grapefruit and has an element of minerality.
