At Hambledon Vineyard, as part of the vineyard’s 70th anniversary celebrations, we have collaborated with talented digital artist Sebastien Baert on a bespoke creation, imagined as a tribute to the combination of our extraordinary terroir and human skills.
The piece reveals a dreamy landscape, beautifully shaped by Nature under the unique influence of the ocean - with cliffs of chalk reminding us of the Hampshire soil and of how essential chalk is to making exceptional sparkling wine; That landscape is then artfully refined by a sculpture and by stairs crafted by skilled human hands; A bottle of Hambledon Vineyard’s Premiere Cuvee bottle perfects the view, showing exceptional balance and mastery in growing vines and making wine, and illustrating the brand’s signature :
“Shaped by Nature, Crafted by Hand.”®
“Our terroir is truly exceptional, a gift from Nature: The finest chalk soil, born sixty-five million years ago; Slopes slowly shaped under the influence of the ocean; A cool yet sunny climate, protected by the Isle of Wight. And in return, we hold ourselves to the highest standards, making the wines of Hambledon Vineyard a unique combination of the most extraordinary terroir and craft.” – Ian Kellett
