Freedom of the Press Compendium

Bottle notes

Designed as an easy drinking wine that can be enjoyed as a ‘summer terrace wine’ as well as matching a range of foods this is a blend of (white) Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Bacchus. It has lovely floral and fruit notes and a good structure. This is supremely enjoyable for any occasion with sufficient weight and complexity to warrant ‘tasting’ as well as drinking.

Freedom of the Press is an urban winery on a hill in the Cotswolds. “That makes no sense” you might reasonably say. The original plan was to establish an ‘urban winery’ in Oxford with no vineyards of their own, buying the best grapes from across the country. They would operate more like an in-town micro brewery or boutique distillery than what most people think of as a vineyard. So that was the plan – they had a venue selected and everything. That was early Spring 2020. Covid took control of everybody’s lives, and the Oxford venue fell through. But just as it looked like it was curtains for the project they found a new home, a unit on a beautiful farm above Minster Lovell in the Cotswolds, 15 miles from Oxford.
