Vagabond Urban Winery
Whilst the Vagabond focus tends to be on sourcing the best Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Bacchus from the vineyards of South Eastern England, they will also be broadening their range with some Ortega in 2018.
Grapes are also sourced from abroad. A quick look at Gav’s instagram (@gavmonery) will reveal that a considerable portion of his time as a winemaker is spent outside of the UK. Chardonnay is sourced from Limoux (France), Chenin and Cinsault from the Western Cape (South Africa) and other grapes will also be sourced from growers in Italy and Spain.
Gav believes that some of the fruit sourced from the outstanding 2018 vintage could have the potential of making some of the best English wines on the market.
