Festive Fizz & Firelight Event
7th – 8th December 11am – 3pm
Yuletide lovers! We are opening the doors of the deliciously cosy Glass Barn to welcome you to our 'Fizz & Firelight Festive Weekend'. Come along, indulge in a glass of Quintessence, the fire roaring, the lights twinkling, the views unfolding and even maybe have a whiff of our glorious Burgundian truffles unearthed last week from our truffiere. Sorry – at this stage not for sale as it was such a surprise, that we have been caught napping!
Introducing our latest release, the Gold awarded 2013 vintage Magnum (that's a double bottle of 1.5 litre of deliciousness) and also our gorgeous first-ever, Eau de vie de vin and botanicals - based Cupid Blue Gin. There are unique Christmas gifts to shop for: for the wine aficionado our Golden Heroes Trio - of three consecutive vintage 2011, 2013, 2014 Cuvées awarded with the rare and coveted gold awards in the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships; The Halcyon Cuvée; The Essence; our bespoke hamper ready for a summer picnic to stuff with goodies; beautiful Surrey Hills art, jewellery, décor, chocolate and honey, whilst also supporting Cherry Trees children's charity.
Golden Heroes Trio. a hat-trick of CSWWC Golds
Each of our last three vintages have been awarded a coveted Gold Medal by the CSWWC and we are one of only three vineyards in England to have achieved this.
The Aurora, The Elysium and the Halcyon Cuvées (2011, 2013, 2014 vintages).
The Aurora and Elysium Cuvées are sold out; no longer available BUT we do hold a few bottles back for our 'library'. The Halcyon Cuvée is fast approaching the same, so this year, especially for Christmas, we have decided to create a unique gift box containing all three.
This is a one off and cannot be repeated, so grab one early if you're a wine aficionado. Treat yourself and your friends to a 'longitudinal tasting' of these now rare, delicious wines - a special treat for Christmas Day?
15 years after planting our truffle orchard in a secret location in the Surrey Hills, we were delighted to watch as these beautiful autumnal treats emerged thanks to the sensitive-nosed 'Ella and Zebedee', the truffle hunting hounds owned by The Truffle and Mushroom Hunter. We're spending our time dreaming up all kinds of truffle infused and flavoured produce to delight you.
Watch this vineyard space!
Announcing Cupid Blue Gin
Now for something distinctly new. You may have heard rumblings, rumours, reports....we at High Clandon have added a new member to our family of quaff-able delights. We are super excited to introduce you to our new craft spirit 'Cupid Blue Gin'. The second pressing of our succulent berries is used to produce a still wine which is then distilled by our talented friends at the Gin Kitchen to create an Eau de vie de Vin then infused with botanicals of High Clandon. Hand distilled by a rocket scientist in traditional copper to 48% vol - a taste explosion! The name is inspired by the Rare Blue butterfly, Cupido minimus, swooping over our wildflower meadow, sipping nectar, dependent on the one herb for procreation. Come along and taste for yourselves.
And don't forget we also have our lovely liqueur 'The Essence'. We're sure there must be a fabulous cocktail combination waiting to be discovered with these two.
High Clandon's Battle of Waterloo tasting!
