Your Selection

A Classic Method sparkling wine blended from hand-picked and gently pressed Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes, it has benefitted from over fifty months on lees.  Pale straw in colour, the 2018 vintage abounds with toasty brioche notes on the nose and delivers a warm and rich mid-palate depth with a long and perfectly balanced finish.


Our 2018 Classic Cuvée has benefitted from over 50 months on lees and is our first wine to be christened with a name. Alwyn was a nobleman and first known owner of the original Saxon manor of Chilworth. His name is derived from Alfwin or Elwin, combining the words oelf and wine, translating from Old English as "wise friend". We could not imagine a more appropriate character to begin our series of named wines.


In keeping with the spirit of Chilworth Manor, we support Mary's Meals who provide one good meal per school day to some of the poorest children in Malawi schools.

The 2018 season gained something of a celebrity status among British winegrowers. Bud-burst in April led seamlessly to a very even flowering and a subsequent fruit-set that was full of potential. Blessed by almost perfect weather conditions throughout the early season and the consistent warmth of an incredible summer, veraison completed the transition from berry growth to ripening even before the end of August. The vines benefitted from this with extended weeks in which to mature, resulting in a glorious combination of sugars and acidity.
