Owned and run by Lawrence Warr, Henners is the result of a long term dream to produce the finest English Sparkling Wine. Henners Brut has notes of biscuity brioche on the nose, with delicate white flower and full fruit. Citrus, apple and ‘leesy’ characters add complexity to the palate.
Larry started his career as an automotive engineer in the exciting world of Formula One. Having left Formula One to set up an engineering consultancy, the search for the perfect vineyard site began. The search was a lengthy and dedicated one – as the ideal combination of soils, aspect, slope, altitude and microclimate was difficult to find. “After about 18 months of searching, I found the site that would become Henners Vineyard, where free draining sandstone soils, a steep south facing slope, and low altitude combine…”. The vineyard in Herstmonceux, East Sussex (just 4 miles from the sea and 24m above sea level), was planted in May 2007, with the winery following in 2009. Today, the 10 acre estate is planted exclusively with the traditional Champagne varieties – Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. As he says, “My aim is to be large enough to do it professionally, but small enough to do it well”. Larry named the vineyard ‘Henners’ in honour of his French ancestor, Henners Dubois, who was forced to flee Paris for England during the French Revolution in the late 18th Century.
Henners – exclusive English Sparkling Wine of the finest quality. Hand-crafted with every attention to detail, the wines are created with depth, complexity and elegance… they are a perfect accompaniment to any occasion.
