About Gusbourne

Gusbourne produces and distributes a range of high-quality and award-winning vintage English sparkling wines from grapes grown in its vineyards in Kent and West Sussex.

The Gusbourne business was founded by Andrew Weeber in 2004 with the first vineyard plantings at Appledore in Kent. The first wines were released in 2010 to critical acclaim. Following additional vineyard plantings in 2013 and 2015 in Kent and West Sussex, Gusbourne now has 93 hectares of mature vineyards. The NEST visitor center was opened next to the winery in Appledore in 2017, providing tours, tastings, and a direct outlet for our wines.

From the beginning, Gusbourne’s intention has always been to produce the finest English sparkling wines. Starting with carefully chosen sites, we use best practices in establishing and maintaining the vineyards and conduct green harvests to ensure we achieve the highest quality grapes for each vintage. A quest for excellence is at the heart of everything we do. We blind taste hundreds of samples before finalizing our blends and even after the wines are bottled, they spend extended time on their lees to add depth and flavor. Once disgorged, extra cork aging further enhances complexity. Our winemaking process remains traditional, but one that is open to innovation where appropriate. It takes four years to bring a vineyard into full production and a further four years to transform those grapes into Gusbourne’s premium sparkling wine.

Gusbourne’s luxury brand enjoys premium price positioning and is distributed in the finest establishments in the UK and abroad. Our wines can be found in leading luxury retailers, restaurants, hotels, and stockists, always being aware that where we are says a lot about who we are.
