Wine Varieties

Bacchus

It is very fruity in a Sauvignon Blanc style. It matures well in a bottle, when it develops tropical fruit flavours.

Developed in Germany in 1972, the Bacchus grape is a cross of Sylvaner X Riesling with Muller Thurgau.

Ripening in October, it produces a wine with a flowery bouquet suggestive of elderflowers.

It is planted widely in the United Kingdom.

Ortega

Developing well in the bottle, it produces wine of outstanding quality, with a fine bouquet reminiscent of peaches.

Developed in Germany in 1971, the Ortega grape is a cross of Muller Thurgau with Siegrebbe.

It is named after the Spanish philosopher Ortega y Gasset.

Ortega ripens early, and is therefore an excellent variety in a poor season.
