Introducing The

Kew Series by Laithwaites

Welcome to our new partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.

An exclusive range of stunning wines and gifts inspired by and directly supporting the important work of the iconic royal gardens.

See the wines


Kew Series by Laithwaites has been designed, above all, to delight our customers. To do this we’ve picked exciting grape varieties from among the 10,000 or so we inherited from early humans – many of which face being lost forever – grown by producers committed to doing the right thing, and combined them with original artwork that celebrates the incredible biodiversity of vineyards around the world.


A percentage of the proceeds from the sale of each bottle of Kew Series wine will go back to support Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in its vital work to protect and understand all plants and fungi on earth.


We’re passionate about supporting projects which lock up carbon, protect habitat, and enhance biodiversity as part of our Climate Action Plan, so teaming up with Kew to deliver something really special was a clear choice.


A juicy Italian red, a bright Sicilian white and a smart Moldovan fizz, each of the wines in this new range has been designed – featuring artwork from Kew’s archives – to tell a story of culture, history and nature. Not to mention they taste fantastic. Pour them at parties or send them as gifts, you’re guaranteed to impress. Discover them all below …

Kew Series Red

Everything is done by hand – or donkey – in the vineyards and the winery behind this velvety Italian red. A blend of native Italian red varieties including Ancellota – the darkest of the Italian grapes – produces a super smooth, deep purple wine full of ripe juicy blackberry, plum and cherry flavours. Make like the locals and enjoy it with homemade tortellini.

Kew Series White

Made by a small family producer from Sicily, this is bright and zingy white bursts with citrus, ripe stone fruits and delicate floral notes. It showcases the island’s most prized indigenous grape – Carricante. An ancient variety that’s been grown on the slopes of Mount Etna for a thousand years! As at home as a solo glass with friends as it is with light creamy pasta, fish and seafood.

Kew Series Fizz

An exciting and very rare white sparkling wine from Moldova, unusually made entirely from the red Cabernet Sauvignon grape. The biting wind that blows over the vineyards of Cimisla gives this fizz a lovely aromatic freshness with a soft mousse, white peach and citrus notes. Easy drinking yet sophisticated, it’s delicious as an aperitif and makes a wonderful celebration gift.
