Marsha - Castelao Nat Fiz 2019 - A Naturally Fizzy style of sparkling wine (unlike Champagne, Prosecco, Cava and Cremant) which undergoes the first and only fermentation in the bottle. No added anything. No sulphur, no yeast, no fining, no filtration, no nothing. Just grapes. Fruity, off dry, unusal aromas of ripe banana. Get it while you can, due to how hard this wine was to make, we won't be making her again!
Sara - Essex Chardonnay 2019 - This is what England should be making more of. Premium, unusual, balanced acidity, structured, sessionable and soft oak. Nee Hungarian oak and old French oak barrel fermented and aged. Very moreish. Unfiltered and unfined like all....
Josh - 2019 Sangiovese - Chianti but not. Softer and ligher and more aromatic. Puglian grown, aromatic, soft, approachable, fruity, gentley oaked London style of this Italian classico.
Please be aware that this product is unfiltered/unfined and may therefore be cloudy or contain some sediment.
Renegade London Wine is a cutting edge Urban Winery based in Bethnal Green, East London.
They do not grow grapes. They purchase small parcels of top quality grapes from around the UK and Europe, hand harvest them and race them back to London and make wine.
When they started making wine in 2016 they were copycat winemakers. They asked the growers how they should make wine with their grapes, and they did what they said. This was a mistake. They should't be copying other styles. London should be leading the charge on new wine styles, winemaking approaches and using both ancient and modern techniques.
So in 2017 they changed. Our wines change year on year and they rarely repeat a wine or style. They make around 12-14 wines a year with a total current production of around 28,000 bottles. This may sound like a lot but it's really tiny for a commercial winery. This is one of the main reasons our wines are not cheap. They try to keep them as affordable as possible but they know that they need to be worth the money.
Each label shows the eyes of a different person who lives in the UK. They may not be born in the UK, they may not have gone to school in the UK, but they're part of this country. They each form a key part of the rich tapestry that makes the UK special. As as urban winery based in London, many of the faces are Londoners. That's just how it's worked so far. Anyone can apply to be on the labels.
Crafted by world class young winemakers, Renegade makes modern, innovative, premium wines here in London. Why? No appellation rules, no tradition, no BS. Just great wine.
Top Quality. Modern Wine. Made With Love In London.
