Titchfield Vineyard Titchfield Thunderbolt Rose is an English Quality Wine which was first launched in late 2020.
Titchfield Vineyard is a small English vineyard located near the village of Titchfield situated near the Solent between Portsmouth and Southampton. It has been owned by local businessman Colin Baker for a number of years and he produces a range of wines including red, white, sparkling and, when conditions allow, a dessert wine. Their first wines were released in 1996.
Titchfield Vineyard has a very special location quite close to the Solent and the maritime climate has quite an influence on the local conditions. The grape varieties grown there were chosen for their ability to ripen with good sugar levels in the Southern English climate. All Titchfield Vineyard wines are produced from grapes grown, vinified and bottled on the estate. Winemaker is William Biddulph who previously made wine at Wickham Vineyard (after studying Winemaking and Grape Growing in New Zealand).
Titchfield Vineyard Titchfield Thunderbolt Rose is made from a blend of Pinot Noir and Reichensteiner grapes.
The wine is named Titchfield Thunderbolt, a play on words of the name of the 1953 comedy film, The Titfield Thunderbolt and features an images of a steam train on the label.
