Head over to Tinwood to celebrate Christmas with your friends, family or work colleagues this year. Together with the fantastic chef Mark Dunne the team has devised the ultimate Christmas dinner which has been paired with some favourite wines from the vineyard's Dinner Series over the past few years.

Stock up on fine English sparkling wine, with a landmark vintage

Perfect for the festive season, from Christmas drinks to bringing in the New Year (and saying a firm goodbye to 2020). Tinwood Estate recently released its 2018 vintage, including the Blanc de Blancs, Brut and Rose. Owner Art Tukker says, "The weather in 2018 was the best year we’ve ever had at Tinwood, and we’re expecting great things from this vintage. I would go so far as to say this was the vintage of a generation."

The 2018 bottles have spent a minimum of 18 months on the lees (yeast) and 5 months on the cork, resulting in a great flavour and balance.
