Balfour Winery

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Tonbridge, UK

Balfour Winery, located in Kent’s Hush Heath Estate, is a renowned English vineyard known for its exceptional pink sparkling wine. Established in 2002 by Richard and Leslie Balfour-Lynn, the winery gained international recognition when their first creation, the Balfour Brut Rosé from the 2004 harvest, won a gold medal and the Trophy at the 2007 International Wine Challenge. With a focus on quality and sustainability, Balfour Winery has become a standout in the English wine industry, offering visitors the opportunity to experience the best of English viticulture through their award-winning wines and beautiful setting.

The journey of Balfour Winery started when the Balfour-Lynn family acquired the adjacent 400-acre farmland to Hush Heath Estate. Inspired by their favorite Billecart Salmon Rosé, Leslie Balfour-Lynn envisioned creating a rival pink sparkling wine, leading to the initial five-acre planting. Today, the winery’s 200-acre vineyard showcases their winemaking philosophy, producing high-quality English wines that reflect the unique terroir of their clay, chalk, and greensand soils. The renowned Balfour Brut Rosé continues to receive global recognition and has been served on British Airways First Class and exclusively at the London 2012 Olympics, earning the title of “England’s most exclusive pink fizz.” In addition to fine wines, visitors can enjoy a memorable dining experience at The View, savoring a seasonal menu while taking in the panoramic views of the vineyards and ancient oak woodlands. The contemporary tasting room and Cellar Door shop offer further opportunities to explore the richness of English wine at Balfour Winery.
