Simon and James, the eponymous Hawkins Bros., produce and sell English wines exclusively.
We deal with over 30 English vineyards so we have something for every taste. We like to think we have the best selection of award-winning English wines anywhere. We love to listen and recommend. Having taken on the arduous task of tasting every wine in the shop we'd love to share our knowledge and passion with you.
Hawkins Bros award-winning fizz, Hawkins Bros Brut Reserve, is grown and made on the Hogs Back in Surrey. The beautiful, south-facing chalk slopes are perfect for growing the Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier that make our wine. Our crowd-pleasing 2013 vintage won a Silver Medal at the IEWA (Independent English Wine Awards) in 2017 and is always on taste at the shop.
English wine has been an incredible success story over the last decade, there are now over 600 vineyards in England with production set to double in the next 2 years. England's winemakers produce world-beating sparkling wines and their still wines are increasingly winning awards at international competitions with an emerging, unique, “English style” of wine.
The Hawkins Bros. are champions of this new wave of high quality winemakers.
The best way to find out about English wine is to taste it. We always have bottles open so do pop in, or come to one of our tasting evenings, and give your tastebuds a treat.
