Ancre Hill Estates

A perfect sparkle for every occasion

We’ve got some news if you like a bit of sparkle in your life (sparkling wine that is)…

Wildsmith Hotels have been fortunate enough to secure two gloriously outstanding bio-dynamic sparkling wines, produced by multi-award winning Welsh winery Ancre Hill. What’s more we are the only hotel in the North of England to serve these stunning wines…

Since the release of their first vintage, from 2008, Ancre Hill Estates has been recognised with medals in some of the top international wine competitions in the world, and was voted the best Sparkling wine in the world in 2012, at the Bollicine del Mondo in Verona, Italy. Beating over 20 Champagnes in a blind tasting…

We think you might just like them…

Ancre Hill Chardonnay 2009 – Having spent 5 years on the lees, this 100% Chardonnay has developed subtle but complex aromas of citrus fruit, brioche and white flowers. The nose develops in the glass, a hint of spice and a touch of peach over layering freshness and purity within the wine. The palate has a creamy mousse, vibrant acidity and fine delicate finish.

Ancre Hill Rose 2010 – This Rose is a delightful fresh sparkler with a luxurious delicate salmon pink colour made from Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes. The wine has a beautiful soft perfumed nose, with aromas of wild strawberry, summer pudding and toasted brioche, soft bubbles on the palate, with a subtle balance of delicate berries and texture on the finish.

Both are perfect for marking any special occasion, priced at £13 a glass or if you are celebrating in style £60 a bottle
