Tilllingham x Starvecrow Tasting Evening

Tilllingham x Starvecrow Tasting Evening


Bottle & Jug Dept are proud to be hosting a double tasting of Sussex delights. We have invited Ben Walgate of Tillingham wines and Starvecrow cider to come and present his awesome produce at a special tasting evening in the shop.

Tilllingham is a forward thinking wine producer based in Peasmarsh near Rye. Set amongst 70 acres of rolling hills and woodlands this mixed farm, which dates from the 13th century, is home to vineyards, fruit trees, ancient woodland and livestock. The recently renovated farmstead provides a place for visitors to stay and enjoy the produce of the farm and the local area.

The philosophy at Tillingham would be best summarised as progressive: incorporating the best scientific and technological knowledge available, whilst championing ancient traditions and best practice learnt from millennia of farming and winemaking.

The wines are some of the most naturally produced in the UK. Incorporating ancient techniques alongside modern know how. Ben also employs techniques such as the use of Qvevri that originate in the ancient wine making culture of Georgia.

Starvecrow cider is produced by Ben in association with farming partner Steve Reeve. They create natural cyder using apples from Reeve's 65 acre orchard. The ciders are just as groundbreaking and innovative as the wines, employing many of the same techniques such as barrel ageing, pet nat cyders and the use of the qvevri.

Tickets for this event are just £15. For that you will taste a range of products from both Tillingham and Starvecrow including some previously unseen and interesting tank, barrel and qvevri samples.

Please note that this is an eticket and you will need to present the confirmation email upon arrival.
