Five years ago Polgoon and River Cottage formed a relationship that resulted in the creation of a delicious elderflower sparkling wine.
Made at Polgoon in Cornwall, the River Cottage Sparkling Elderflower is made using the traditional artisan methods of sparkling wine production. After a first in-tank fermentation, this wonderful, unique wine is bottled and these bottles are then laid down for up to a year. During this time a secondary fermentation takes place which produces a quality sparkling wine with a persistent mousse of tiny bubbles.
This lovely sparkling wine is infused with elderflowers grown here at Polgoon and on neighbouring farms, to produce a refined, floral sparkling wine that is perfect for any special occasion.
Launched at the River Cottage Spring Festival it’s now a regular feature at the River Cottage Canteens and Delis, along with a selection of Polgoon ciders and fruit juices.
