Discover Artelium, a new boutique wine estate which works with artisan winemakers to craft exceptional fine English wines from grapes grown in vineyards across the South Downs.
Artelium grows grapes in vineyards across the South Downs, and has its headquarters at a vineyard in Streat, nestled between Ditchling and Plumpton. The couple planted their first vines in 2018 in Streat, near Hassocks and their second planting was established in 2020 in Madehurst near Arundel.
Wine lovers can enjoy walks among the vines to take in the far-reaching views of the Downs, before enjoying a tutored tasting in the dedicated tasting room in a barn.
Artelium has just launched its first two vintage sparkling wines, the Curators Cuvée 2014, and the Makers Rosé 2015, both produced in collaboration with celebrated winemaker, Dermot Sugrue.
The wines are made with grapes from a single vineyard and hand harvested. They are aged for over five years and four years to bring depth and complexity of flavour. Making Artelium’s wines takes time, so take a glass, sit back, savour and enjoy!
