A banker and a barrister walked into a Bar ….
A lifelong enthusiast of all things fermented, Charles left a sensible job and took the plunge into the watering-hole of wine over a decade ago. In the winery he is Ambriel’s head winemaker, and a general factotum in the vineyard. As a side-line, he makes a lovely Sourdough using yeast from the vineyard’s Chardonnay grape skins (clone 96 to be precise!)
Wendy has swapped one sort of Bar for another, but retains her love of tucking into a case. Often found loitering hopefully in the winery, glass in hand, ready to do the hard work: sniff, sip, slurp, swoosh … but never spit.
The Classic Cuvée is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. This Traditional Method Sparkling Wine has the crisp elegance of an English gentleman, with refined bubbles, a citrus zesty zippiness, perfect balance and a lingering finish. Its a wonderful aperitif: particularly good with canapés, seafood and fish (especially sushi)
