Liz Robson Rothley Wine Estate English Wine

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

We have rebranded ourselves as Rothley Wine Estate. Kingfishers’ Pool vineyard was getting confused with hot tub companies! Kingfishers’ Pool still exists, as does Rothley Wine Ltd, but the new name allows us to be more specific to our geography and have a collaborative arrangement with a nearby vineyard.

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.
