Folc, England’s highest ranking still rose, is set to launch its new vintage just in time for summer
Folc, England’s highest ranking still rose, is set to launch its new 2021 vintage just in time for summer. Having launched last year, Tonbridge-based Folc impressed wine critics and accrued numerous awards both nationally and on an international scale.
Folc’ 2021 vintage is a blend of six different grape varieties all sourced from family-run vineyards in Kent, East and West Sussex and Suffolk: pinot noir, pinot meunier, chardonnay, pinot gris, bacchus and kerner. The grapes will then make a short trip to Canterbury where they meet Folc’s talented winemakers with a combined 60 years of winemaking experience.
The brand also brings issues such as sustainability and inclusion to the fore. The winery is accredited with the WineGB Sustainability Scheme, reducing the environmental impact of wine packaging and levels of greenhouse gas emission as well as the volume of water used and the carbon footprint per bottle. Each cork used to seal the bottles is plant based and carbon negative, and all of the packaging is biodegradable, recycled and recyclable. The company’s mission is to be fully carbon neutral within the next few years.
The word, Folc, is the Old English word for people, tribe and family and this is a wine designed to bring people together, best enjoyed chilled with loved ones! Check out www.drinkfolc.com
