Court Garden English Sparkling Wines made by our friends in Ditchling have won more awards!

December 09, 2014

It was announced just over a week ago that Court Garden had achieved two Silver Medals in the prestigious Effervescents du Monde competition.

This competition held annually in Dijon, in the heart of Burgundy, attracts entries from all the sparkling wine regions of the world; around half the entries are from France and of course the Champagne region is well represented. For an English producer to be holding its own against such formidable competition is gratifying for Court Garden who have worked very hard to achieve high standards, and further recognition that the UK wine industry is a serious player internationally.

The silver medal winners are:

Court Garden Classic Cuvée 2011
Court Garden Rosé 2011

This is the second consecutive year Court Garden has won a silver medal at the Effervescents du Monde. In last year’s competition the Court Garden Blanc de Blancs 2010 also achieved a silver medal.

Last Tuesday it was announced that Court Garden had won two Gold Medals in the International Wine Challenge 2015, this is a fantastic achievement, and in fact only once before has an English vineyard won two Gold Medals in this internationally recognised competition.

The gold medal winners are:
Court Garden Blanc de Noirs 2010
Court Garden Blanc de Blancs 2010
The Blanc de Blancs 2010 has now won 3 Gold medals in different competitions.

If you haven’t yet come over to the orange side, here’s what you’re missing out on.
