Description

Discover Hush Heath, a boutique, state-of-the-art winery hidden away in the beautiful Kent countryside near Staplehurst, and the only English vineyard dedicated to the creation of Rosé sparkling wine.
 
With a history dating back to 1503, the exquisite Tudor-framed Hush Heath Manor is the family home of the Balfour-Lynn's. The Manor nestles into the hill, overlooking the vineyards and estate with magnificent views across the Weald of Kent.

Both Owen Elias and Victoria Ash bring richness and vibrancy to everything they create.

In the autumn, Hush Heath winery enjoys its busiest time of year and manages all of the apples and grapes from their land. None of the fruit has to travel long distances to the winery and they pride themselves on producing a range of sparkling and still wines and ciders which are uniformly characterized by a clean, crisp, and lively personality with concentrated fruit. Their immaculate facilities give them precise control over the winery pressing process and play an important role in this signature style.
 
Since its beginnings, the Estate has grown its product range substantially and now boasts an exquisite selection of wines and ciders all produced from fruit grown in their beautiful vineyards and apple orchards. Hush Heath's aim has always been to produce a wine of world class quality, one that stands on it's own as a modern classic.
 
The Estate has recently planted another 30 acres of Pinot Blanc, Bacchus, Pinot Meunier, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay to create a stunning vineyard directly outside the nearly completed new building. This comprises of a new winery that will allow them to grow their production from 150,000 bottles per year to 500,000 bottles per year. A new tasting room has been created which can seat up to 200 visitors with a roof top bar and terraces overlooking the 400 acre Family estate. Continuing their focus on wine tourism, they will create a one of a kind opportunity for visitors to experience all that English wine has to offer in the beautiful new building and outside space. 
 
The home of award winning Balfour Brut Rosé is open to visitors and wine lovers to experience tours and tastings. Visitors will be able to stroll through the Estate’s beautiful vineyards, apple orchards and ancient oak woodlands.
