Picked only from the best grapes
In 1793, engineers from the Grand Union Canal started work on a two mile tunnel at Blisworth in Northamptonshire. They spread the broken ironstone rock on a south facing field running down to the canal and the Stonyfield was created.
Over 200 years later, we realised that this field provides an ideal terroir for an English Sparkling Wine, made using the traditional Champagne method. This special wine, harvested from a single field, comes from a blend of grapes of the Pinot Noir and Seyval Blanc varieties, giving it a sophisticated flavour and dry quality.
