They actually do produce sparkling wine, which is very lovely, but we have been especially taken by their still wine offering. Forget the staid image of English still wine - its associations of flower shows, lunatics in tweed and reflux-inducing levels of acidity; these are wines made with a view towards modern tastes and wine styles - Adrian plays around with everything from skin contact whites to amphora-ageing and pet nats.
About this Wine
Westwell Wines is a forward-thinking English winery based in the North Downs in Kent. Owner-winemaker Adrian Pike and viticulturist Marcus Goodwin (both previously worked for English organic pioneer Davenport, Marcus for 20 years) are committed to working sustainably in the vineyard and work with a low-interventionist approach in the cellar (wild ferments as standard).
