The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410.
In 2004, Andrew Weber took over the estate with a clear vision and a single goal: to create English sparkling wines that would stand up alongside the very finest offerings from across the globe. The first vines were planted that year. In 2010 the debut vintages of Gusbourne Brut Reserve 2006 and Gusbourne Blanc de Blancs 2006 were released to critical acclaim. Gusbourne quickly earned a reputation as a producer of outstanding quality wines, with accolades from some of the industry’s most exacting critics. Respect for the vineyards, the fruit and the natural elements involved in winemaking means that their approach favours minimal intervention.
