wines & vines



We aim to produce award-winning quality still white wines each year, supplemented by a sparkling blend when conditions favour this.We want to celebrate Bedfordshire through the vineyard’s wines, and each year a different blend with a different name linking to
Warden Abbey Brut 2014
something to do with the county will be produced. 
Sales of the wine support the project's work and saving this historic vineyard for the community.

"The nose is white flowered and fragrant fresh the palate starts with a mix of citrus fruits. There is depth and breadth of flavour in the middle a hint of sweet fruit with the mix of grapefruit and lime ensuring a refreshing long finish."  Derek Smedley Master of Wine  92 points out of 100.



Still white wines

 £13.50/bottle    6 for £78 (£3 off)      12 for £154 (5% off)

Every now and then we produce a wine that doesn't fit our regular blends so that we can bring you the best wine of the vintage. This one-off blend of all four of our grape varieties is inspired by local legend John Bunyan, who also did not conform to to type.  

Bright fresh citrus aromas. Sweet fruit on the palate - grapefruit and tropical fruits - followed by fresh lime and lemon.
