This gorgeous rosé was made by John Worontschak, who was mentored by Australian winemaking legend Brian Croser. It certainly bursts with luscious summer fruit but in its own, very English way! We love wines from Denbies – and this is one of the best.
"English rosé, grown from Cornwall to Yorkshire, can be a fantastic beast"
Just the thing for an English country garden (or any empty glass on a hot day!) Ashcombe Hill Rosé is bright, fresh and brimful of juicy red berry fruit! It’s made from Rondo, with a splash of Dornfelder. Rondo is a dark skinned grape perfect for the English climate because it ripens early to make a lovely, soft, fruity wine. And Dornfelder brings plenty of richness and colour. Did you know there were 38 vineyards listed in the Domesday Book completed in 1086? Now there are over 400, and Denbies, with 107 hectares near Dorking in Surrey, is the UK’s largest single estate vineyard. In 2010 they won Gold for their rosé at the International Wine Challenge, and it’s been a star ever since! Sip it solo or pair with cold meats and a crisp salad.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...
and fell in love with wine and the people who make it. When he borrowed a van to share their delicious wines with
friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
