Creators of acclaimed English wines

Since 2002, we have been at the heart of the growing English Wine industry- winning National and International awards, and the acclaim of sommeliers and wine experts to become one of England’s most respected wine producers. We have been at the forefront of the growing English wine movement with our flagship sparkling Balfour Brut Rosé being the first English Sparkling wine to be served in BA First Class and the official English wine of the London 2012 Olympic games.

Still Wines

England's leading pioneer of still wines

At Balfour we believe in the potential for English still wine and our vision has always been to create a range of still wines that compete on the world stage. To do so has required a painstaking focus on clonal and site selection, specifically for the production of still wines. The result is a collection of wines which are enjoyed around the world and which are pushing the boundaries for English still wine production.

Winemakers' Wines

Our Innovative Small Parcel Collection

Our Winemakers’ Collection are the epitome of our winemaking philosophy. Our winemakers identify and isolate small parcels of wine that have distinct characteristics and use innovative winemaking techniques to produce these limited edition, unique wines. Sharing our love for the arts, we wanted these wines to look as special as they taste, and as such, commissioned acclaimed artists Keith Coventry and Lothar Götz to design strikingly abstract labels to complement the wines. The Winemakers’ Collection are a series of wines like no other.
