About Simpsons' Wine Estate

We laid down roots for Simpsons' Wine Estate in 2014 amid the pristine beauty of the Elham Valley where the soil could scarcely be improved upon for viticulture. Our vineyards are protected from the whimsy of the English climate by ancient woodland and anchored in the iconic chalky soils that are so highly revered in the world of both still and sparkling wine.  


At Simpsons', we believe that the finest wines convey a rich sense of provenance and integrity, firmly rooted in the characteristics and exquisite nuances of their terroir. This is why we settled for nothing less than the finest parcels of land in southern England to plant the vines for Simpsonsí exceptional English wine.

Product Description

We planted the first 10 hectares of Chardonnay, Pinot Meunier and Pinot Noir on our estate in 2014. This is our Roman Road Vineyard, situated alongside the route the Romans first marched when invading England in AD 43, bringing with them the first vines. A further 20 hectares of the same three grape varieties were established on the southern slopes of the village during 2016 and 2017. This is our Railway Hill Vineyard, so called because the Canterbury to Folkestone light railway passed through this site in the late 19th and first half of the 20th Century. 
In 2023 British Airways introduced award-winning English Sparkling wines in its Club World cabin This patriotic promotion began in spring 2023, with the airline championing British provenance by working with four local wine producers from across England. Each English sparkling wine has been available on a rotational basis, changing every three months.
