What is Simpson Railway Hill Rosé?
Ruth and Charles Simpsons are winemaking heavyweights, having run a fantastic estate in the south of France for many years before returning to the UK and planting vineyards near Canterbury in Kent. Just a few miles from the sea on three sides, with chalky soils and south-facing slopes, these are some of the most favoured vineyard sites in the UK, and it shows in the superb quality of their wines – including this delicious rosé
What’s so great about it?
Forget the south of France – with the Railway Hill Rosé, it’s all about the south of England – and this is an English rosé that Provence lovers will adore. Light, pale, easy-drinking and ridiculously refreshing, this is heaven in an ice bucket. Plus it comes in a super-elegant bottle that will look the part on even the trendiest of tables.
If this isn’t reason enough why you should drink Simpsons Railway Hill Rosé…
The Simpsons were founder-members of Sustainable Wines of Great Britain, and their estate was one of the first to be fully certified. If you buy it on Marasby Market direct from the winemaker at vineyard gate pricing, it’ll cost you just £2o per bottle. So it’s good for you, good for the producer, and even good for the planet!

Tickets for the Intro are available now via Design my Night.
What should you drink it with?
We’d always lover drinking Simpsons Railway Hill Rosé freshly pulled from an ice bucket on a sunny spring or summer day. Having said that, it has enough depth and complexity to match with a variety of ‘apero’ style foods like salted almonds, creamy cheeses and proscuitto-style charcuterie.
