The Chapel Down winery is located in the beautiful town of Tenterden, situated in the heart of the Kent countryside. We produce a complete range of English sparkling wines using the Traditional Method. The same method used in Champagne, but from fruit sourced from the South-East of England. From very modest beginnings two decades ago, we have become the UK’s #1 winery. Wine-lover demand for our sparkling wines has been constantly growing both at home and around the world.
The classic English sparkling wine.
A very elegant English sparkling wine with aromas of red apple, lemongrass and freshly baked bread together with hints of strawberry and quince on the palate and fine persistent bubbles.

“The purest notion of Golden Pearmain apples is beguiling on the nose, promising fruit and mellowness in equal measure. The palate with its superfine and creamy mousse does not disappoint. Creamy, rich autolysis and ripe yellow apple create an elegant, generous and bright midpalate that's full of flavor and depth. It's harmonious, hitting that intersection of freshness and richness perfectly and finishing long.”
Anne Krebiehl, Wine Enthusiast.
