Talk title: Punching above our weight to produce the most gold medal awards per hectare.

The multi award-winning High Clandon Estate Vineyard was founded in 2004 by Sibylla and Bruce Tindale.

Both have a passion to create the quintessential English quality sparkling wine and the belief that a small hand-manicured vineyard can produce an exquisite English cuvée.  The terroir – that mystical marriage of soil, of locale, of climate and cultivation – producing the best grapes combined with the best winemaking results in 'the expression of perfection' in their Cuvée.

Sibylla is a lover of champagne and believes entirely that the best of English sparkling wines can surpass those of France. Bruce is the vineyard and wine expert having obtained a Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Viticulture & Oenology from Plumpton College.
