With a large surface area and exceptionally gentle pressing, the Coquard enables extraction of the very highest quality juice and combined with Wiston's minimum intervention winemaking, the end product best reflects its vineyard origin and the characteristics of the vintage. Now led by famous winemaker Dermot Sugrue, Wiston are one of the frontrunners in the English sparkling wine industry.

Weather: In 2011, buds started swelling in early April, almost three weeks earlier than in 2010. May was dry with below-average rainfall. The months of July and August were mediocre with below-average temperatures and sunshine. However, a mini-heatwave in late-September and October saw grape growers record the highest sugar levels for many years in all varieties. As such, 2011 finished as one of the best years for English grapes in living memory.

Wiston Estate History
The Wiston Estate has been owned and managed by the Goring family since 1743. Its 6000 acres straddle the chalky slopes of the South Downs. The Vineyard planted in 2006 is situated on the South facing chalk slopes of the South Downs, the three traditional varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier are sited on a peri-glacial dry river valley on the Upper Cretaceous Chalk, which closely resembles the physical and chemical composition of the world renowned Côte de Blancs in Champagne.
There are no herbicides sprayed on the soil and Wiston uses the traditional Coquard press, one of only four outside of France and is unique to the UK. Its large surface area and exceptionally gentle pressing enables extraction of the very highest quality, so they can maximise the purity of the juice, followed by minimum intervention in the winemaking process so the wine can best reflect its vineyard's origin.
The label was inspired by the story of the two families coming together. It combines the colour and intensity of Pip's South African nature with Harry's family heritage and English design. The intricate detail replicates the plasterwork of the Great Hall at Wiston House, commissioned by Sir Charles Goring in the mid-18th century, with the eagle carrying the ribbon of grapes and flowers.
