Gusbourne Estate sits on the low slopes of the ancient Kentish escarpment at Appledore.The extensive two hundred hectare Estate is on a single site with twenty hectares under vine cultivation with Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grapes. They are currently planting a further ten hectares of these Champagne clone vines, placing the extent of our plantings amongst the largest vineyards in England. The entire estate consists exclusively of south facing slopes thereby ensuring that for most of the summer months as the vines bask in a relatively warm and dry local microclimate. Located only 6 miles from the coast, the sea has a moderating influence on the weather, providing a long growing season. Together with the Estateâs clay and sandy loam soils, these particular conditions help ensure the production of exceptional quality grapes.
