We are over the moon that our red wine Warhorse has been selected by esteemed wine writer Fiona Beckett as her ‘Wine of the Week’. Fiona is one of the country’s top wine authorities and is perhaps best known for her Guardian wine column. Read the review here, then call us to place a contactless order for a bottle of Warhorse to try for yourself!

Statement on Covid-19 virus

Our wine is available for “call & collect” – contact us on rothleywine@btinternet.com or 0116 2375168 to arrange your order and pay by card. We will open the gates and wave from the window as you pick up your wine! Hand sanitiser is available for your use.

We have cancelled “out & about” participation at fairs and trade events. Wine tastings for April – May on site have been rescheduled and future events will be carefully planned around the latest government advice.

When we resume on site wine tastings, we will increase our safety measures. Regretfully visitors will no longer meet the vineyard dogs or hens, and children will no longer be able to attend for the time being. All visitors will be provided with a “squirt” of hand sanitiser on arrival and will be maintaining a social distance of at least 2 metre. All wine tastings will take place outside whatever the weather!

The Rothley Wine Estate is running vineyard tours and wine tastings usually with restaurant critic Laura Hadland  every month. You will need to book promptly as these are proving very popular.

Our two acre vineyard (0.48 hectare under vine) is located in the village of Rothley. We are located between the Rothley Court Hotel and the G.C.R. Railway. The boutique winery installed new equipment to ensure quality production and comply with relevant standards. We can accommodate small groups of up to eight in our conservatory tasting room. See a review in the Leicester Mercury.

We are getting known in English wine circles, see Great British Wine and in a feature in Niche magazine here.

BBC Radio Leicester have done 5 interviews.
