Ready to launch
It's been a busy 12 months for Blackbook as we've set up our Battersea premises, sourced our first English grapes, completed a hectic harvest and now bottled and labelled our first release. We're ready to launch to the market, starting with our Essex-grown, London vinified pinot noir rosé. There are 3 more wines maturing away down in Battersea, a still chardonnay, still pinot noir and a sparkling seyval blanc, our “GMF”. All three will be released later this year.
We only have 1,000 bottles of the rosé, which has been awarded a Silver medal by Drinks Business Global Rosé Masters 2018. It will soon be on the wine list at Michelin-starred Chez Bruce and we also have advance orders from local merchants, Dvine and Cellar SW4.
Come and join us at CellarSW4 in Clapham on the 30th May as we takeover the bar for a “Blackbook Hijack” and we’ll be pouring our rosé alongside 2 other wines that Sergio, our winemaker, helped to make during his previous vintages at Ata Rangi in New Zealand and Mulderbosch in South Africa.
We’ll be beginning winery tours in July, booking details will soon be available in our shop.
Our online shop is now live and offers a quick route to order our rosé and have it delivered to your door. We are offering a special release discount for our mailing list customers so sign up now to receive details.
We’d love to hear from you so please get in touch and tell us what you think of the wine and website.
