Give Raystede a much needed fizzy boost!
At Tickerage Wine, we wanted to spread some sparkling cheer by supporting a local good cause. So when we heard our near neighbour, Raystede was loosing £1,000 a day, we wanted to see how we could help; click here for more information.
Tickerage. Sparkling Wines to Excite.
Realising the opportunity that exists to make a high quality sparkling wine in the South East of England, I returned to higher education to study viticulture at Plumpton College. On completion, I knew my passion lay in the cultivation and harvesting of grapes and set out to find a family home with land suitable for our intended journey.
After a year of searching we found the perfect site in the small East Sussex village of Blackboys and on the 1st May 2007 we planted 2 hectares of vines (45% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir and 10% Pinot Meunier). Seventeen different combinations of varietal, clone and rootstock were carefully researched and selected bringing the required complexity to our wines from a comparatively small scale planting.
As part of our hands-on approach, we work closely with sommeliers, wine buyers, event planners and bespoke venues to ensure that Tickerage has special significance for their clients and guests.
Tickerage – synonymous with complex and intriguing flavours.
With our purpose built, on-site winery, the time from picking to pressing is minimised. The hand picked bunches travel from the three fields on our little slice of East Sussex by tractor and trailer straight to the 3 tonne whole bunch press ready for gentle pressing. Using only our own carefully nurtured grapes we are able to use low intervention practices and this bespoke approach to creating quality wines evokes happiness in every glass.
