Fox & Fox are a boutique grower and producer of English Sparkling wines, cultivating 30 acres of classic champagne varieties.
Their vineyards sit either side of the ancient hilltop village of Mayfield, amongst the rolling hills, woodlands and deep-cut ghylls of the Sussex High Weald. They are surrounded by bluebell woods in springtime and over-flown by Buzzards, Red Kites and other hawks in summer. They are an evocation of this unique Sussex countryside at its best.
They’ve been growing vines since 2004 and producing wine since 2009. In 2010, they expanded from their first vineyard site to a second larger vineyard, whilst remaining true to their first love: making limited quantities of Award winning quality Sparkling Wines with a unique English twist. Within their two vineyards, they grow Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Gris. A mixture of medium yielding Burgundy clones, which mature richly in their High Weald terroir, alongside Champagne clones for structure. This carefully selected combination allows them to create wines with enticing fruit flavours, aroma & complexity.
Their aim is simply to make limited quantities of top quality English Fizz that reflects the specialness of their East Sussex High Weald surroundings, its soils, topography and microclimates. Their wines are the result of that critical evaluation and a desire to create interesting and delicious cuvées for wine lovers and occasional drinkers alike. We make for those who like to revel in the differences between vintages, tasting the changing nuance of season, place & vineyard parcel. With their limited-edition cuveés we mix traditional winemaking skills with contemporary innovation in their quest for the perfect English Fizz.
