Our vision is simple. We strive to create the finest wines in the world.
AT GUSBOURNE WE EMBRACE TRADITION BUT READILY CHALLENGE CONVENTION, EVEN TO MAKE WHAT MIGHT SEEM LIKE VERY SMALL DIFFERENCES TO THE FINISHED WINE. ATTENTION TO DETAIL IS OFTEN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN GREAT AND EXCEPTIONAL
The original Gusbourne Estate in Appledore, Kent dates back to 1410. The de Goosebourne family crest was made up of three geese and can be found in our local parish church in Appledore - nowadays, each and every bottle of wine crafted at Gusbourne carries a contemporary goose crest in honour of our heritage. This ‘Goosemark’ is a symbol of trust, representing our pursuit of uncompromising quality.
A combination of the best age-old traditions with modern technology and cutting-edge equipment allows us to sit comfortably between old and new world winemaking, while at the same time bringing our own exacting quality standards to the process. Respect for the vineyards, the fruit and the natural elements involved in winemaking means that our approach favours minimal intervention.
