Candover Brook is an exciting new name on the English wine scene. The story of this estate has its origins in the 1970s when Lord Sainsbury toured the vineyards of Champagne and hatched ambitions to make his own wine. However, it was not until 2012 that vines were eventually planted on the Sainsbury family estate the idyllic countryside of the Candover Valley in Hampshire. The name, Candover Brook, is a nod to the chalk stream which runs through the estate and is home to the rare English White Clawed Crayfish, depicted on the label. The Sainsbury family have been farming the land for over forty years, and today the estate is run by Mark and Julian, sons of the late Lord Sainsbury.
