Tinwood Estate’s Award-Winning Wines

2011 is when the first bottle of Tinwood Sparkling Wine was opened in Janine, Art’s sister’s, kitchen. The Tukker family was apprehensive as they sipped the first vintage of Blanc de Blancs. Art, quietly confident in his product, hosted his first tour for his family from their home as they continued to drink and enjoy the bubbles. Since then, our Sussex-made sparkling wine has gone on to receive numerous awards.

English Vineyard of the Year 2023 – Travel and Hospitality Awards

Tinwood’s most recent achievement is the title of English Vineyard of the Year 2023.

Travel & Hospitality Awards are a global recognition programme for the travel industry, recognising the very best hotels, tour operators, experience providers, spa & wellness facilities, restaurants, and technology and innovation companies.

Travel awards are given based on the review of customer feedback alongside their own collected entry data. Nominees are then categorised and compared on a regional basis by an expert panel of judges.

International Wine and Spirit Competition

The IWSC runs a tightly structured, rigorous wine-tasting process. The format of their judging sessions allows for group discussion, which also ensures maximum exposure to key decision makers, who receive full details of the wines they have tasted after the session is complete.

The judges assess every glass put in front of them methodically to ensure a fair and true result, tasting and discussing each entry alongside the rest of the panel. Tasting panels consist of experts and influencers from every sector of the drinks trade, from buyers, importers, and distributors to specialists making and serving the drinks.
