In 2012, Charles and Ruth Simpson purchased 30 hectares of prime viticultural land in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in Kent. The land lies in a hilly valley at Barham, beside Canterbury, and their dream was to make the very finest English sparkling wine. But they are starting with an advantage, as they have been making wine at their Domaine Sainte Rose estate in the Languedoc since 2002.

Tasting Notes

Pale gold Chardonnay with citrus and nashi pear aromas. Refreshing tropical fruit flavours are complemented by a smooth, textured palate and crisp, fresh acidity..


The Roman Road vineyard is on a south-facing slope, on the chalk and flint soils next to the Roman Road connecting Canterbury and Dover. The area is known as Gravel Castle; the former site of an ancient fort.


Pressed under inert gas to preserve fruit flavours, then fermented at cool temperatures in Stainless Steel
