Bolney Wine Estate - The BIG Reveal
Friday 20th April 2018

6pm to 10.30pm

Last year we decided that we would like to change the name of our heritage Lychgate range. We asked what you thought would be the best names for our new labels and we got a vast array of entries, from traditional to quirky! 

Our preferred four went to the public vote on Social Media and the winning names were: Ryecroft for the red, Wykehurst for the white and Regency for our rosé. We loved the fact that all the names are in keeping with a historical and local link.

The new labels are a slight step away from our standard labels, but we are really excited with what you helped create.
We will be selling a limited-edition run of these wines (just 500 bottles of each).

We would like to invite you to our wine bar on 20th April for the big unveil. In celebration we will be giving away a FREE tapas dish with every bottle of the new wine purchased in The Eighteen Acre. We will also have a historical display, explaining the local link behind the new names.
