Hello! We’re Susie & Peter, married Masters of Wine…and we need your help.

We love English wine. So making some delicious, unique bottles for charity was our idea of fun. Now we need you to buy and enjoy these brilliant wines so we can give a whole heap of cash to the amazing Marine Conservation Society.

All profits are going straight to the charity. So, in buying them, you are helping keep our seas clean and full of life. Not only that, but both bottles are collector’s items, graced by bespoke artworks from acclaimed street artist Hendog. We couldn’t have done this project without amazing support – huge thanks also to Hattingley Valley, our original partners in this escapade.

But what of the wines?

We made three in total (the original plan was just for one, but we got over-excited). All tiny productions, all totally unique, so snap them up before they’re gone forever! One very special Essex Pinot Noir. And two beautiful Hampshire sparkling wines, both quite different in style, which are the ones you see here.

Hope & Glory Blanc de Blancs 2016 (the one with the man on the label) is 100% Chardonnay, one third aged in oak, with four years on lees and a dosage of 10g/l. It’s refined, stylish and complex – one to revive the senses and nourish the soul. 

Hope & Glory The Blend 2017 (the one with the woman on the label) is 50% Pinot Meunier, 50% Chardonnay. We think Meunier has superstar potential in Britain – it’s so scented and succulent. The wine was one third aged in oak, with 3 years on lees and a dosage of 9g/l. It’s dangerously moreish.

We made fewer bottles of the Blanc de Blancs (2016 was hit by frost, making for intense wines but lower yields). So we’re selling them either as a double-pack or as singles of The Blend. Whichever you go for – thank you, on behalf of the Marine Conservation Society and English wine in general. Cheers!

Harvest

2016 was a low-yielding, late vintage that gave expressive, intense, ripe fruit – potentially a great vintage. We vividly remember how beautiful these grapes were when we harvested them.

2017 saw April frosts and mixed weather, leading to an early harvest, but some excellent wines were made. Including this one!

Winemaking

We worked closely on the wines with Emma Rice, Hattingley Valley’s head winemaker, who’s not only a font of knowledge but also very patient…

We worked together on all the key decisions (details as below). Our over-riding aim was to make wines with character and elegance. Wines that were balanced but had something to say. Refined, individual wines worthy of your time and investment.

Tasting Notes

Hope & Glory Blanc de Blancs 2016 (the one with the man on the label) is electric. With vivid flavours of ripe green apples and fresh bread, it’s refined, stylish and complex. One to revive the senses and nourish the soul.

Hope & Glory The Blend 2017 (the one with the woman on the label) is scented and succulent. Let its beguiling aromas swirl in the glass before your tastebuds savour the enticing flavours of red apple and biscuits. Dangerously moreish.
