Now focusing on the production of English wines, London Cru sources high-quality grapes, and they handpick the fruit and then transports it to the London winery within a matter of hours – talk about being sustainable!!
The wines are created by winemaker; Agustín, Agustín came on board for the 2017 vintage. He has extensive experience of cool-climate winemaking, having worked with some of Austria and Germany’s best producers, and you’ll find the wines fresh, ripe, and wonderfully evocative of the English countryside.
