Add New-Release Late Disgorged Masterclass and Winemaker's Lunch to your Itinerary

man tasting rose wine.


Our Late Disgorged wines are some of our most complex and interesting. These special vintage wines have been aged on their lees for almost a decade. As they mature, gently gaining depth and complexity, we regularly taste them to see how they're developing. When they're judged to be perfectly balanced, the wines are released.

This year, we're delighted to unveil a series of limited-edition Late Disgorged wines, including for the first time our prestigious Blanc de Noirs. To mark their release, we're holding a special winery tasting and three-course dining experience, hosted by Winemaker Alastair Benham.

Throughout the day, you'll enjoy a selection of wines, each with different qualities gained from extended lees aging. You'll sample these amongst the tanks and barrels in the winery as well as in our tasting room through a tutored masterclass. This will be followed by a delicious, three-course seasonal menu accompanied by carefully paired wines.

The event begins at 12 noon, with a welcome drink in the Nest. We expect the day to be concluded by 3.30pm. We recommend that you make any taxi arrangements in advance. Following the event, you will have the opportunity to purchase many of the wines tasted. You're also welcome to stay and enjoy more wine by the bottle or glass at your table after your experience. Our estate will close at 5pm.
