Humphreys of Henley TV: Fairmile Vineyard

Sipping award winning English sparkling wine overlooking the vines growing on a hill in the beautiful English countryside.

It was as idyllic as it sounds. The Fairmile Vineyard is home to 12,000 vines and produces superb white and rose English sparkling wine. Listening to Jan Mirkowski and hearing the passion and love that he and Anthea have invested in this stunning vineyard, it is easy to understand why the white sparkling wine received one of the highest accolades from Decanter Magazine earlier this year. It was voted the only Outstanding sparkling wine, ahead of many well established and recognised wines.

The vines are from the Champagne region and they benefit from growing on the same chalky marl as their home territory. Combine that with our warmer weather, and you would be mistaken for thinking that you were sipping the fizzy stuff from the other side of the Channel.

We invite you to enjoy a curated wine tasting with a quintessentially afternoon tea, and take in the spectacular views across the vineyard into the valley beyond. Jan describes the pale pink of the rose wine as “the colour of an English summer” and that sums up the whole experience perfectly.
