Sulphites are added as preservatives (in the form of sulphur dioxide) to all Blossom Hill wines. We do not have any requested analysis about sulphates. It is very likely however that sulphates can be found in Blossom Hill wines.

Unless approved by The Vegetarian Society, no wine can be guaranteed as suitable for vegans or vegetarians, as there may be occasions when non vegetarian processing aids may be used to finish the wine.

So how exactly is the wine produced? Do you use casks? A range of chemicals?

We use a range of commonly used fining agents to clarify our wine before filtering it. On occasion this might include gelatin or albumen.

Casks are used for our Winemaker’s Reserve Chardonnay and our Winemaler’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon.

I’ve read that all sorts of fruit can go into wine, like blackberries, blackcurrants and raspberries. Is that true?

Whilst the taste and aroma of Blossom Hill fruitful wines may give the illusion of a variety of different fruits, only grapes are used in the production process.
