Biddenden Pinot Noir Awarded ‘Most Outstanding Red Wine’


Biddenden Vineyard’s Pinot Noir 2011 has been awarded the Bernard Theobald Trophy for the ‘Most outstanding red wine’ at this year’s English & Welsh Wine of the Year Competition.

The awards, which were judged at Plumpton College by selected Masters of Wine earlier this month are very highly regarded within the wine industry and aim to highlight the best wines being produced across England & Wales.

A further 6 silver medals, one bronze and one highly commended were awarded to Biddenden vineyards for white, rosé, red and sparkling wines grown & produced at the vineyard. 

Biddenden Vineyard’s Managing Director, Julian Barnes, commented “We are obviously delighted to have won the trophy for the ‘Most outstanding red wine’, but equally pleased with the block of silver medals we have been awarded, which shows the consistency across our range of wines”.

The awards will take place on Friday 13th July at theConnaught rooms, hosted by the United Kingdom Vineyard Association’s President, HRH The Duchess of Cornwall. 

The award winning wines, including Biddenden Pinot Noir 2011 are available direct from the vineyard shop at Biddenden Vineyards – Free admission & tastings, open 7 days a week.
