Ashling Park Estate has to be one of the luckiest places in the whole of the South Downs. Our loamy soil and sheltered position provide the perfect environment for growing Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – the holy trinity of sparkling wine grapes.

And to supervise the magical transformation from vine to wine we have secured the services of Dermot Sugrue, one of the most talented (and award-winning) wine makers in the industry if not the whole world. Now with all that going for it, haven’t you just got to try it?

Ashling Park is a 50 acre estate in the charming hamlet of West Ashling. It may be small – blink and you’re through it – but it’s a delightful place to call home, with the rolling South Downs on the doorstep and the sea just minutes away.

After living here for more than 20 years the Gardner family decided it’s such a great place to rest and play, why not work here, too? The hay meadow was promptly converted into a vineyard and the rest, as they say, is alchemy – because as ideas go, it was pure gold.

Today the Ashling Park Estate business is a real family affair, with everyone playing their part.
